And I spread out all over.  Left them money and came home with 2 packets for future quilts, all ready to go.

yellows and greens various sized prints with a splash of dark green

Yellows, darker greens, browns, and near white with a “background” of grayish white and splash of brown/black. ¬†Dynamic!

pinks & purples & blues with a splash of gold B

Pinks, blues, purples in batiks with a “background” of violet and splash of gold with purples. ¬†I knew that color-wise a yellow would be a good compliment but I sure wasn’t sure I’d ever find it. ¬†Pleased with this stop in Monticello!
