gini:do they just put their taupes together? we find some taupes, made in japan with the daiwabu fabrics, which are more coarsely woven, but beautiful for backgrounds.
Yes, just the taupes. And some of the Daiwabu "taupes" are red or blue. I'm just not familiar with this Daiwabu line.

nancy, they are calling all their japanese fabrics of this type taupes including the daiwabo. the daiwabos are wonderful but very expensive. they are a more coarsely woven cloth usually of one color but multi colors will be muted. in the weaving of this cloth, they will put in a design that stands up from the cloth. it makes beautiful purses, quilt backgrounds. i love working with it. i'll try to remember to bring a hunk to retreat and show you.

daiwabo i don't think is a line, but a category of fabric. we probably see it here, more, because there is such a big asian population in the west.
Wow Barbara - you have received some beautiful fabric at a great price. If that was all in one box, it must have been heavy!
Made up 3 of the baby burpers on DSM today so I would be able to show MN Nancy how I do them at VB. I really like the way they turned out better than the ones I did on the serger even though they are a little more work. Then I added border to the simple flannel quilt top I made for Project Linus just sewing 15 / 10" squares together.
Marge no it was not all inthe same box it came form three different shops. And thank you .Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
MNnancy:Sounds like a good find, Kris. How do you find their prices to be?
I buy my batting by the bolt and I find their prices to be good. If JoAnn's isn't having a sale I look here. They also have a wider selection.
MNnancy:I bought and used my first jelly roll last fall, and I found mine to be consistent in size. This was a Moda jelly roll, however, so maybe their quality control is better.
Haven't had trouble with the jelly rolls. It's the Bali Pops and Tonga treats that are awful I waste more of those trying to find parts that are actually 2.5 inches wide.
This is a quilt I designed using 3D pinwheels and one seam flying geese. I took the class on the pinwheels at the LQS in September.
The background fabric is a cotton seersucker. Pinwheels and flying geese, are made from the Kaufman batiks I won this summer in the summer block party contest.
That's very pretty Wendy. I like your design very much.
Wendy, love your pinwheel quilt.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
I like Wendy, nice job
Very pretty. Love the 3D effect.
Pretty Quilt - A breath of Spring !!
wendy, i know it's late, but your pinwheels look a bit like chubby dancing girls without heads.
