|wrap around skirt|
Today, quilt shops offer a wide selection of gorgeous batiks; however, the fabric was not common in the United States until the mid-90s.
I enjoyed wearing the skirt for several years and loved it so much that I tucked it in the cedar chest when it no longer fit. Recently, I found the skirt and decided to take it apart and salvage as many of the squares as possible.
Perhaps this stack of batik squares will become a table topper, a pillow, or placemats. No matter how I decide to use the squares, this souvenir fabric will remind me of many wonderful adventures.
