Everything checked out OK at my eye appointment yesterday. Now I will start visits every 3 months so they can check on the shrinkage of the tumor in my eye and look for any problems that may be a side effect of the radiation treatment. I hope for some normal life between the appointments. My friend Sarah drove me to Chicago yesterday and on the way home we stopped at the quilt shop in Yorkville that opened this summer. I found this light color purple print and had to have a yard of it. It is so hard to find purple or blue light prints. I thought I would go to the basement and play with some purples but instead I pulled the pile of Fossil Fern and other Benartex prints that were in a series in the 1990s that were on a shelf in my main floor studio. I need to mix them into my other fabrics instead of keeping them all together.
I think the fossil ferns are still available but I don't know about the other coordinating lines of fabric. I think they look the most like batiks of any of the regular quilting fabrics. Here is a quilt where I used a lot of them.
