Ila strikes again!!
For those of you who don’t know, Ila is a blog reader who is so sweet gifting me fabric often. She sent me a box not too long ago filled with batiks and now she sent another. I’m loving it!
These are all big chunks. It’s perfect. I typically only buy 1/4 yard cuts or fat quarters as like scrappy quilts. When it comes time to put together sashing or borders I need to visit the quilt shop. There’s not much in my stash that works.
Neither of the fabrics below are batiks but they looks like it and would work great for a batik quilt. There’s this crazy casino fabric. I don’t have a place of idea for this yet…something will come to me I think….any idea for any of you. I’m not a casino girl myself. We went once about 15 years ago and haven’t gone again. These are my favorite two fabrics of the bunch….
Ila is so good to me. I love that I’ve had a chance to meet her. She’s a hoot! Every time there is an email from Ila, I always smile. I’ve told her she missed a life as a stand up comic!! I totally believe that.
I’m so blessed to have great blog readers. I can’t tell you how often I get messages, encouragement, or simple pops in to say hello from people who started out as blog readers and have moved on to being friends. It makes my small world much larger and I love it. Ila was the first person who reached out to me. I can’t thank her enough for showing me that there are awesome people to meet via the internet. THANKS Ila! You’re the best!
