My sister and I went shopping at my favorite LQS. I took a string top made from batiks to show the owner. I love the bali pops because I want lots of colors and don't want to buy and cut all those quarter cuts. (They don't sell eighths.) So I get the pops and cut them down the middle for my strips. The yardage I bought was 30% off and he sold me all the bali pops I wanted for $18 each. He is now out of Bali Pops and I have a lot of strip piecing to do!
