New Fabric for the Next Quilt

This is the fabric, purchased at Country Traditions in Fremont, for the next big quilt, a postage-stamp style, using a cross-stitch pattern by Thomas Kinkade, The Light of Peace.  Each cross-stitch will instead be a one-inch piece of fabric.

I got 39 half-yard pieces, plus a yard for binding, and three more pieces for three borders that will increase in size as they get closer to the outer edge of the quilt -- 1 ½ yards, 1 ¾ yards, and 2 yards.  Most of the fabric was from the clearance shelves, and was only $5.99/yd., even the batiks that are normally $13/yd.

I chose the fabric by matching the embroidery thread to it.
