What fun!

Here's my portion of the goodies I picked up this morning. I really concentrated on the batiks. Batiks have absolutely no place in my decor and yet I am drawn to them like a moth to flame. The McKenna Ryan pattern was half price and my DIL's kitchen is decorated in a coffee theme. I think she will like the wall hanging.

I also picked up a large quantity of batiks for Julie and some Laurel Birch horse print fabric. They had a cheater panel from that line so I got that for her as well. Her daughter is a horse enthusiast and has been riding since she was a little girl. I found lots of fabrics for Pam and dropped those off at the library. She seemed pleased with my selections so I think I did a pretty good job.

Tomorrow I am going to load a flimsy on the LA frame. I made it several months ago and am finally going to get it quilted. I have been practicing wonky feathers and swirling patterns on my white board so this will be my first attempt at really letting my hair down. I will admit to being just a little bit nervous. At the same time, I also am excited to be trying something new. If all goes well, I will post photos tomorrow!


  1. Suzan, Suzan you did a great job, but where are my fabrics? You and my granddaughter with the Batiks, they are unique for sure! I like what you are showing us, thanks for sharing!

  2. Great FQ's! Do you quilt with batiks all the time? I heard they were hard on the Longarm......Can't wait to see them in your chosen project. Delish colors!

  3. You could go shopping for me any day - love your choices. I can 'so' relate to your hesitation with the longarm - I've chickened out more times than I can count and revert back into my box with a panto. Good luck!

  4. What great fabric choices! And your store must have a fabulous selection of batiks. Lucky you!
