I can't upload photos to this computer at work in London but I can tell you that I bought 27 yards of fabric yesterday in Brixton. It hadn't occurred to me whn I googled for African textile shops that what I would get was dutch wax print sold only in 6 yard pieces i.e dress size. But at £12 - £15 for those six yards it still had to be done. (For those who can do maths and work out that 27 does not divide by 6 - I did find some off cuts on the market as well!). I have some textured polycotton in black, three cotton wax prints and two mock Kente cloths. Either I use them as backings or I will be using this fabric in my quilts for a very long time to come!
