I Have Decided to De stash Allot of My Batik Fat Quarters

Please go here for my Grow Your Blog Party Post and to enter for my hand dyes Giveaway    There is still plenty of time to visit all those 600 blogs and enter giveaways-drawing February 15th (Please enter only on that post)

Good morning, I never think of de stashing my sewing or craft supplies-cause one never knows when I might just need it.

However, I have decided to take a serious look at my quilt fabric stash and well-de stash lol  

     I am not really in a panic about turning 65 this coming October but it is on my mind.(especially with my Mom's dementia now) I have much I hope to accomplish but I need to focus now on what I really want to accomplish-and that is quilts of the 1800's and quilts using cottons with wool appliques, plus my other interests. I would like to make us a Turning 20 quilt-I love that pattern-for me it goes together fast, I can use large pieces which really shows off the fabrics and I can tie the quilt too instead of dealing with getting a large quilt through the sewing machine to get it quilted. I have some beautiful brushed cottons with woodsy scenes so that will be perfect for that quilt.

    I just love batiks and hand dyes. Hand dyes I use my own, and batiks are just so gorgeous-they are eye candy to me in fabric. However I am seriously thinking of selling off most of my batiks. I bought them from quality quilt shops and they are Hoffman, and allot of them I bought as sets one year to build up my fabric stash. I have made some gorgeous gift quilts in the past from this stash. 

   Before I start taking lots of photos and getting them listed in my Kathyinozarks Fibers shop on Etsy, or on Ebay-I thought I would offer them here to my US customers first. I would consider mailing worldwide-but be warned the shipping is now very high.
      I have several pinks, spring colors, dark blues and purples, and I have a set of metallic batiks with golds.These have not been washed. I know I paid top price plus shipping for these, but am thinking of $2.25 for each (plus shipping). So if anyone is interested message me and I can post more photos if you need them. thanks

Those of you that quilt for toddlers or babies, I just posted a bundle of fabrics with a nautical theme in my fibers shop. click on photos above to enlarge
