Uh, Oh! I need help!

Dear Friends,

You know I love scrap quilts.  You know I almost never buy yardage unless I know exactly where it will be used.  Well, that habit has gotten me in trouble this time.

I found the PERFECT fabric to use for the sash pieces in the quilt I'm working on.  But and you knew there was a but, didn't you, there is not nearly enough.

If you have this fabric (the blue) in the photo, would you be willing to part with it and sell it to me?  I need a little over 2 yards.  If you have 2-1/8 yards, I could make it.  I need 120 of these sash pieces, but only have enough fabric for 16.  BIG difference!

See how perfect it looks?

So far only 4 of the blocks are finished, but the rest are getting close.  I have attached the 3rd side and am pressing them getting ready to add the final row of half squares and squares.  The rows are ready to go, just need to finish pressing the blocks and pin the final side on.

In the mean time will you check your stashes to see if you have this fabric.  It is a Terry Clothier Thompson/Barbara Brackman print from -- are you ready for this? -- 2000.  I know, it's old, but it is perfect!

If you have this fabric in the yardage I need, please e-mail me so I can make arrangements with you to buy it and for shipping it.  I will forever be in your debt!

Thank you for listening to my plea for this fabric!  Next time I'll share the other 47 blocks of this quilt. 

Until Next time,

That looks like what I just used in my shower curtain quilt! Mine may have been more the navy colorway. What is on your blog looks brighter blue. I'll check when I get home to see if I have any left. I'm so sorry. Maybe Jo can do a fabric search for you.
