Wendy's highly sought-after, over-dyed fabrics would make for gorgeous clothing and quilts! She sells out of most everything at nearly every nationwide quilt show she attends, and Pokey has an entire shelf of her fabrics that she's collected over the years. (It's so beautiful she'd rather gaze at them than cut them up!)

This is a set of 10 fat quarters in glorious fall colors, including reds, oranges and purples. Wendy does not vend as much as she used to so these are some rare gems to add to your collection. Don't miss out!
