A lucky find

 

I posted some time ago that I was searching for some fabric, that I needed would like to have, for my Head to the Border quilt. I have made a lot of enquiries in patchwork shops all around the country, and sent a photo of the fabric, but have had no luck. Faye went off to Melbourne last week, with a sample piece to check out shops, just in case she might just happen to go to a fabric shop!! Winking smile

Today I walked into my local patchwork shop, where I had previously searched with no luck. The owner of the shop just happened to be there today, and I asked her if, by chance, she had some of the said fabric at her home, as I had originally purchased it in her shop. But this was 10 years ago. When I mentioned the name of the fabric, she immediately went to a shelf down underneath……. and came out with the last of this range, although in a colour I was not searching for. Mainly because I did not know of it. But it is perfect, just the colours I want, but with a green background and not pink. And as I am using greens in the quilt as well, it goes with everything. And there was 2.5 metres left on the roll! So I have no more excuses and can finish the quilt. Stay tuned for further updates. It needs to be finished in time for our local exhibition in October this year.
