We, my husband and I, went on a little scenic drive today. We stopped at two quilt shops along the way: The Stitchery in Oblong, IL and Angie's Nine Patch in Effingham, IL.

Both are excellent quilt shops--I think that The Stitchery has more in both fabrics and gadgets, but I love the way the cloth is measured at Angie's Nine Patch. She gives at least an inch extra, and a couple inces on one, 1 1/2 inch extra on another. And she has lots to choose from as well.

Anyway, I bought the half yard of batik and the 3 fat quarters at The Stitchery and the other five 1/2 yd. cuts at Angie's. I just thought I would show them--I am slowly but surely adding some lights to my stash. I could spend a fortune of batiks!
