Calling All Readers - I Need Fabric Help!

I am gearing up to start work on my Lily of the Nile quilt, which is quite large. I've been collecting fabrics for it for a couple of months now, but I am coming up short on the black-and-whites I need for the background.

So, if any of you out there in Blog-land have a regular quarter or fat quarter of:

A black on white print, where the black print is very fine
and/or subtle so you see more white than black,
that is 100% good-quality cotton and would like to trade
for an equal amount of Bali batik fabric
(you name the color) I would be absolutely thrilled.

I seem to have enough of the dense black prints on white, but the fine black on whites are hard to find and I'd like to get a good variety.

We could even email pictures back and forth. I will post pictures of what I have this weekend.

As we say in Hawaii, MAHALO! (Thank you!)

So sorry, I looked and since I have already used an bunch of my B&W prints, I only have small pieces of the black on whites...
