new batiks.....

I forgot to show the new batiks I bought on Wednesday when I was out with friends.  All of these have a lot of movement in the patterns.  I had another social morning and lunch with more friends yesterday.  Now I MUST start cleaning the basement.

Wonderful fabrics. Sounds like you have had a great week.

One looks like kiwis!
How much do you buy when you add batiks to your stash? 1/2 yard? 1 y1rd? 3?

lovely, lovely! I am trying really hard to not buy fabric right now unless it is on sale and only if I really and truly need it to finish something! it is not too hard seeing as I have no local quilt shop and I am forcing myself to not look at the on line shops :(

Gorgeous!!! I did a little shopping myself this week. Always fun when those packages arrive in the mail :-).

They are beautiful!
I'm curious. What size pieces of fabric do you buy when you are simply adding to your stash.

I was just going to ask the same question Shiela did. Those fabrics are just gorgeous, especially the top right onw.

Love Batiks. I had a couple of social evenings having dinner with sewing friends. Now I am designing another quilt for one of them in EQ6!
