Fabric with Text: Acquired

I mentioned recently, that when I was at the Quilt Festival in Houston, I was shopping for neutral fabrics with words/text on them.  I came away with practically nothing.  So recently I was browsing the offerings on and came across a seller who had several pieces for sale in her shop.  Yay!  I love one-stop shopping!  I bought these six fabrics (yes, the one at the bottom-left doesn't have words printed on it, but it sort of reminds me of crossword puzzles).

I like having a large assortment of neutral fabrics with interesting prints.  I use them in my backgrounds for quilts like the following.  The printed design of the fabric looks quite interesting, and sometimes different, when painted over with a transparent paint. 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
