    Do you have some "What was I thinking?" fabric?
    I was looking in my stash for a piece of backing, and discovered this. Price tag still on it, on sale for a dollar a yard. 11 yards! Lol!!

    Oh that is great fabric! I'm putting together Halloween blocks for 5 of my grands and that is the perfect backing fabric!

    You got a great price.

    Lol, I do that sometimes too but yes, I know the perfect project for it so if you decide to sell let me know because I would take about 4 yds of it.

    Is the background navy or black. I love the fabric and would like to buy all of it depending on price and shipping.

    SELL IT if you can't use it. You could possible double your money and sell it for $2 a yard !!! I really LIKE your disappearing 9 patch design. Quite Stunning.

    I would be thrilled to have that fabric! It is awesome for Halloween hangings and runners, for backing and borders or bindings, what a find.

    I just looked at the receipt, I got this in 2006! I guess that shows how deep my stash is.

    ManiacQuilter2, thank you! That was the absolute bleedingest (is that a word?) batik that I EVER used!
