    And aren't they just drop dead gorgeous? :D We've been buzzing here on the QB this week about them, and I ordered these this past weekend, half yard cuts of each. They have a nice feel to them and the colors and patterns are just spectacular (the pic doesn't do them justice). I was concentrating on the blues, greens, reds, and purples, but I can tell now that I've seen them that I'm going to HAVE to go back for more. Love them!!!

    Eddie,
    Your fabrics are beautiful!!! Seeing them makes me want to order from CT's again!! Although I did not order fabric from CT, I did send in an email order on Monday and it got here today!!!! I only ordered thread, a ruler and a pattern. They are so fast with delivery I will surely order again. Thanks for sharing your fabrics. I hope you share what ever you make with them also.
    Susan

    My deliveries from them are always slow but I like them anyway. :0)

    Can't wait to find out how well the batiks stand up to washing.

    I'm happy to hear that you like the fabrics. I only ordered fabric from CT once, a few years ago, and it didn't look anything at all like the pictured product on their website, but your batiks look fabulous!

    I would love to know if they run or not when you wash them?

    Delicious. I want some too. I'm trying to get at least a half yard of every color I can. Yellows and pastels are hard to come by

    I plan on doing a quilt design by Deb Karasik (paper pieced) using batiks. It's called "Napa Valley at Sunset". I plan to change the background color, though. Here's a link to a pic of the quilt:

    I like a challenge. :D I did another paper-pieced pattern by Deb a couple of months ago, and really enjoyed it. Here's a pic of it. Love doing spikey points!
