    I went to visit my niece yesterday (also a quilt-aholic) and as always we ended up at the fabric store.

    I swore I wasn't going to buy anymore fabric until I used what I already have but.....
    They had these beautiful batik FQ bundles (20 FQ each) for only $29.99!!
    I only bought the one bundle but now I'm kicking myself for not getting more... :cry:

    That would be a great way to start a 'stash' of batiks ,,, something I don't have. Good thing the store isn't near me!

    Kicking yourself for not buying more? That sounds like the perfect excuse to visit your niece again! Or if that's not possible, send her the money to buy you another pack.

    Bought them to make a quilt but having trouble deciding what pattern, my niece suggested a turning twenty but I've made several of those already.
    But I do want something that will show off the fabrics!

    Anyone have any suggestions?? :? :?: (p.s. Nothing too advanced!! :) I'm still learning)

    If you would have asked me a few weeks ago I would have said I didn't care for batiks. But seeing what ya'll are doing with them I looking at them with a whole new light. Going to have to get me some.

    Check ebay. I just got some very pretty batiks for a reasonable price.
