Barbara, you rock! 

I have been sick for the past week and haven't even been able to get on-line until tonight to check where I  was at.  I tell you what, after a week of being sick, it is very overwhelming to walk back into your sewing room when you had things going on and goals set!

I sure do appreciate all your help you have done for me on this quilt, it is amazing!

Thanks,

Loretta.

Loretta - I'm from California and would be happy to help!  I live near the coast so I'll either choose blue to represent the ocean or a beige, blue, and green to represent the desert, ocean, and forest.  If you have a preference, just let me know!

Thanks,

Pam

Loretta - I have material from Alaska and the partial California material from my SIL. Not sure about the material from California - seems a little "girly" for a man's quilt but will send it along and let you decide. I'm hoping to get the material in the mail today or Monday at the latest.

Loretta - I'm from California and would be happy to help you if you're still needing fabric.  I'll either send all blues (for the ocean since I live near the coast), or maybe beige for the desert, blue for the ocean, and green for the forrest.  If you have a preference, please let me know.

Thanks,

Pam

Thank you so much!

So, do you think the California fabric is way out of line for a 50 year old man?  If it is, I would say - go ahead and keep it and use it for something for yourself if you have something to use it for and I will take up the next person who has posted regarding California, if you don't think it's too terrible, throw it in there and we will see how it will fit with the other two fabrics.  That is going to be the biggest issue, because the other two California prints that I have are both prints so I will need something to go with those.

Thanks so much for the Alaska fabric for sure!!!

Loretta!

Alright, I have run into a couple of snags regarding fabrics:  States are starting to reappear, for different reasons, all legitimate, but, whatever the reason, I still need more states.

Florida

Louisiana

Nevada

New Jersey

If there is anybody that can help out with these states I would be most appreciative.  My hope is to have all the fabric in hand by September 30, 2011.

Robin, I just went through all my fabric to make sure I had what I thought I had and I am missing Arizona.  The same person that was going to get me New Jersey and Florida was also getting me Arizona, but her DH came out of remission and he passed away last week.  I just don't feel it appropriate to bother her about fabrics at this time.  So...if you are still interested, friend me and I will send you the fabric requirements for Arizona.  I so appreciate it.

Thanks,

Loretta

Barbara,

I'm going to owe you a lap quilt in return for your generosity!  Or maybe, some knitting or crocheting in return - something different if you don't do those?  Let me know.  I will send you the requirements to you.  Thank you so much!!
