African, Marimekko, and kimono fabric Part 2

These were my favorite fabrics I bought. I just love the numbers printed on these. Of cours, I had to buy every color wave they had. Amy even called me to ask me if I wanted one of the pieces that she had found buried. Of course I said yes!

I have no idea how these were made, but the colors are incrediable! It was all I could do to just buy what I did. I wanted it all!

Here are the tie dye/shibori pieces. They didn't have much left. These were regularly $20 a yard. I love the teal with the purple spots.

These are the batiks. I love the earthy colors!

I have two lovely pieces of Marimekko. The rust and back is dated 1992 and the leaf print is dated 1989. I picked them up at a tag sale. They have sat around in my stash for several years and I still don't know what I am going to do with them. If you are interested or know someone who might want them, let's talk.

This is the kimono fabric I have in my stash. There is about 9 1/2 yards of it if I remember correctly. I have had it for years, but have not figured out what to do with it. It was hard to photograph because it is shiny. I would be willing to part with it. Do you know of someone who would be interested?
