Hello to all of you! I just purchased my first quilt pattern and am looking forward to getting started. I have never "quilted" before, but I did make some blankets for my 3 grandchildren, which I was very proud of. Do you have any suggestions of an economical way to get started with getting the fabrics needed for quilts? The batik fabrics are just stunning, but in todays economy, I don't want to spend unwisely. Thank you for any suggestions or hep you can give.
