A little help for my friends...........

Today at noon EST my new pop-up shop will open with a password for everyone on the mailing list.  Everyone else can visit it starting tomorrow at noon EST without a password.  I know I have a lot of readers who admire my quilts made with batik fabrics.  Some of them are pictured above.  Some people call them scrap quilts but I don't necessarily use all scraps.  I do cut off yardage too because my favorite quilts are made with around 100 or more different fabrics.  All I need is a small amount of each fabric but I keep adding fabrics as I get bored with the assortment I start with.  Many of my readers also admire my stash.........and wish they had a great selection of batiks too.
That is how I came up with the idea to make this a reality for many of you.  I made stash builder packs of fat eighths (9" x 21-22") that are available in this pop-up shop.  That is a large enough piece to cut the pieces you need for a block.  So....I did the shopping for you, then washed all of the batiks with pure soap (no fragrance) and ironed them, then cut them into fat eighths and sorted them into groups.  I hope you enjoy shopping and will find a group that pleases you.

Looking forward to seeing what you have in store, will this be available outside the USA? I'm in the UK :)

I’m looking forward to seeing all your beautiful pieces. Also I thought of how much work you put into getting everything ready.

Sue Harrington, you are a NO REPLY because your email isn't enabled in your profile. No, I am sorry, I will only be shipping to addresses in the US.

I am purposefully not signing up so I am not tempted. Good luck to you! (I know I could use more turquoises, purples and greens, but I am really, really trying to resist!)

Sorry, didn't realise, I will see if I can change that setting and enable it.
Hope your sale goes well.

FANTASTIC pop up shop Wanda, I couldn't believe how much has already been sold. But it's late in the day when I finally was able to set down. Our Seattle kids are coming in for our annual spring skiing weekend.

Everyone of your quilts you posted today are gorgeous, and so good to see them again.

You have such a diverse collection of batiks that these stash builders are such a good idea.
My password was waiting for me with my morning cuppa so I had a lovely colourful visit! The photographs you and your daughter have taken are a delight, so well presented - congratulations to you both!
