I have spent most of the morning downstairs trying to go through my batik bins. The fabrics on the top of the bin above are ones I thought I might try in a pattern I found online called a schlep bag which looks easy and very nifty. Will elaborate on that later. We quilters are women of excess when it comes to fabric! I am itching to do something from one of the books by Edyta Sitar - and wanted to line up fabric to choose from.
I love the patterns and colors in this heap of batiks. Most of these will go in a bin together for an Edyta project.
Here are more close to that second picture. Since I took the pictures of my mess in the basement, I now have a good sized bin filled with the ones I would most likely use. Want to add some other fabrics besides batiks, also.
Here are some pretty more "solid" colors and although they won't be in with the more muted ones, I love the lovely colors here
and in this bunch. There are quite a few other piles and bins of batiks, but you all know how that is! Don't you just love color? Now I have to get myself ready to go to a meeting for our quilt show and then do some shopping for a package to send to Africa to my favorite 22 year old granddaughter!! (Click to enlarge)
