I don't buy much fabric anymore. I have pretty much a "legacy" stash: Many of my friends are older quilters, who have downsized and need to get rid of lots of fabric. So I've benefited from their $1/yard fabric and $1/book sales. As a result, I have a dynamic and far-flung fabric collection, but, dare I say it, a lot of my fabric looks a bit dated. So when I crave the new batiks or the current fad, say, the modernist prints, I save up for the annual Shop Hop.

Sandi, Sue, Bonnie and I managed nine shops on the first Saturday. I told you they were driven. Kerry and her lovely daughter Kendyll joined us midway. I decided to be productive and select batiks for my second Judy Niemeyer quilt, The Crown of Thorns.
