Ironies!

I think we would all agree that life is full of ironies but here's one in blogland! Mary at Quilt Hollow is working on a quilt and is 'begging' for more background fabric for her Buzz Saw quilt. I'm working on a quilt today that I'd love to make larger but can't because I only have one yard of my background fabric. I've got my fingers, toes and eyes crossed in hopes that I won't run out of fabric. And, I've knocked on wood three times!!! LOL

Here's the irony - Mary and I need the same print - her's is the lighter cream and obviously mine is the darker cream. I thought about begging here on my blog but I'm just going to settle on the smaller quilt (assuming I have enough fabric - LOL) Edit: I just took a closer look at Mary's Buzz Saw blocks and now I think we might be using the same color background. Bigger irony!!!! LOL

It's now referred to as Moda 3 Sisters Favorites II but I believe originally it was part of the Gingham Rose line. I've searched on-line to no avail. :-(


It's definitely a small world! Thanks for letting me share!

In Friendship!

Try Quiltshops.com
In their search engine type in
Moda 3 Sisters Favorites II - a few different fabrics from more than one shop appear. One of them may just be your colorway. Happy shopping *s*

I've got it coming from a friend....I'll direct them your way if they come my way. I got your back....perhaps not your fabric...but your back! LOL

I have some of the Three Sisters fabric line. I can't get your picture to enlarge to look at it. If you e-mail me the photo, I'll take a look.

How funny to be looking for the same fabric. I bet someone out there has some of that fabric to spare.

good luck, I had some of that fabric, but I have used it all up..
I thought it was part of gingham roses too, but I have been known to be wrong!

I hope you have enough fabric, it looks like it's gonna be cute! I don't think I was collecting fabric yet when that came out--it doesn't sound or look familiar. Good luck :)

I was searching for that same fabric last night to no avail. I wanted to use it for a stitchery project. I thought it was part of Hollywood and Vines.

I just received the new Hancock's of Paducah catalog and it is in there and it is also in pink. On page 35 and it is the Aviary line. Ivory Gingham Birds - M370851 is the fabric number. Hope this helps!

Did you find some? I have about 25" of it.

Lurline said...

Oh, Darlene, I think out there you will be able to find background to finish this gorgeous quilt - I think I have the pattern and yours has inpired me to do something with it!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Great quilters think alike, is all I can say! If I had that fabric, it would be yours, but I don't. I know someone came to your rescue. That's what the blogging world is all about.
