Thrift Store Find

DH and I went to Savers, a local chain of thrift stores, a week or so ago to look for books for him and I wanted to see if they had any cute curtain rods I could use to display my small quilts.  I didn't find any curtain rods, but as I was looking around, I spotted these:



They are fabric foundations for piecing the following quilt patterns: Flying Geese borders in two sizes, Square in Square with two pattern choices, Hunter's Star, New York Beauty, and Uneven Log Cabin.  The pieces are one yard each, so there are only enough patterns for small quilts, which was fine as I don't know that I'd like to use this technique for making a large quilt.  They were only $1.99 each, which I thought was a great deal.  If I try one and don't like the technique, I'll just put them back in the donation pile for someone else.
