Screeeeech/Moving On! :-)

edit: I found it - I found it - I found it!!!! Wahooooooo! I'm doing a very happy dance!!! Wahoo!

Sadly, my project du jour has come to a screeching halt - the background fabric is all gone. Sigh! I'm on the hunt for more. Tomorrow I will let my fingers do the walking and hopefully I'll have some in my possession very, very soon. I spent some time on the phone with Carrie of Miss Rosie's fame yesterday discussing my background fabric. This particular print has been used in several Moda lines; Gingham Rose, Hollywood & Vines, Moda Favorities II and soon it will be making an appearance in their new line called Aviary. Sigh - they are all just a shade different. And speaking of Carrie and Miss Rosie's Quilt Co, this is one of her Schnibbles patterns and is called X-Rated. I'm using a Jelly Roll by Moda called Civil War Crossing. A Schnibble wouldn't do for me - I wanted a larger quilt and thought I'd have enough background fabric. Duh! Oh well - this will work out - I know it will. :-)


I can't sit around twiddling my thumbs - I must move on to a new project! LOL In 2003 I printed a freebie pattern off a website and have been searching for THE black fabric to use in this particular quilt. I not only found the black I wanted but two other prints that coordinate well with it. Now, I need to make 58 - 6" churn dash blocks. I put the pieces/parts away for my X-Rated quilt and got busy with the churn dash blocks. Thanks for popping by for a visit - please come again and come often!

In Friendship!

I looked and looked again today but cant find any of that fabric. I just knew I had it too. When you dont need it I'll find mine. LOL
Love your new project though. Miss Rosie patterns are wonderful.

Sure wish I had some of that background that I could send you! It's not at all familiar to me so I know it's not in my stash. I so hope you find it! In the meantime I love this new quilt - but then churn dash is one of my favorite blocks!

What if you did that lower corner in another fabric with some applique. Might be kind of funky.

Have you tried ebay? There's a "wanted" section.

If I had some I'd send it to you!

Hope you find the background fabric so you can finish your wonderful quilt. Love Miss Rosie's patterns.

I love your X-Rated...I'm going to go upstairs and look again today for you...I would have sworn I had that and that I didn't use it all. OMG those little churn dashes are the cutest. Love your border!

Stephanie said...

I hope you can find what you need to finish X-rated but glad you have cute churn dashes to distract you.

Oh shucks... sure hope you find that fabric soon. The quilt is going to be beautiful.

Quilt Hollow said...

I like it! What size squares are you cutting and how many did you need? Seriously....I may be able to help because I was needing long strips for inner border. I have smaller pieces. I'm going to love your churn dash...already do! That is one of my favorite patterns. The black border is going to be stunning!

Maybe you just need to engage in a little retail therapy . . . . head out to the quilt shop and see if there's something close, but suitable. 100 years from now, they'll think you were a clever, frugal quilter and never know you ran out of fabric *s*

Wendy said...

I would think someone has that fabric in their stash, I have a half finished Hollywood and Vine quilt, I should check that box.
I've been wanting to make that pattern and now seeing you've almost got it done....I love it even more.
The churn dashes are another favourite....Oh I just love it all.

Kim West said...

Which fabric is it? I have had luck on ebay finding older fabric lines.

swooze said...

Nice! Glad you found your fabric.

Threeundertwo said...

Thanks for the update! I'm smiling today. I can feel your happiness.

Carrie P. said...

So glad you found your fabric. I follow Mary's blogtoo and saw that she needed the fabric. Isn't great that you can get help?

Ginger Patches said...

Yay!! I'm so glad you found it!! I love the x-rated quilt, your fabrics are gorgeous...I have the big version of it in one of her books...at least I think it is. And those little churn dashes are adorable!

You are sewing up a storm over there big sis...I think you're sewing enough for both of us, so I can just relax lol!

Karen said...

X-rated quilt?? Is this one of those adults only sites? LOL! I see by your added comment that you found your needed fabric. I like the quilt very much.
