Working on Granddaughter's quilt and my DD wants one of the fabrics I have, BUT, I only have 1 yard and the pattern calls for a yard and a quarter!  I would really like to find more, but I have searched JoAnn's website, as it is exclusively for JoAnn's, no luck.  My DD in KC where we bought the fabric 3 months ago, looked for it, but can't find it either.  I don't have the receipt anymore, so no numbers either . . . anyway, am attaching a pic, if anyone sees it, I would pay for it and postage . . . thanks so much!  I hope to find it, but if not, I could make the border smaller, but I really hate to, the larger border is just perfect for the quilt and we of course based the fabric choices on this fabric . . . anyway . . .

I know the fabric and have used the fabric.  Don't know if I can still put my fingers on any if we have some left as I just packed up my quilt room to prepare for the flood.  However, if I come across it or if some comes back to me when my quilt group meets next Saturday, I will let you know.

Dawn,  Have you tried the site thousandsofbolts.com.    It seems to me that I saw something similar when I was grazing through thier site a couple of weeks ago.

Good luck with your search

Thanks ladies!  I will try the site!  I guess this will teach me to only buy one yard of fabric!  :-)

Dawn - the general concensus with a lot of the ladies here is to buy 3 yards.

if you really really love it,  you need  6 yards just in case. and if you love it SO much you are shaking, just get the entire bolt.   :  )     gini

Eileen, no, it just says made and designed exclusivly for JoAnn's and then has the colored dots that are numbered.  I will be keeping receipts for a while too . . .  Thanks! 

I haven't had any luck on any of the websites either.  Will just have to figure something out . ..

Thanks everyone!

Try posting your picture of the fabric on www.missingfabrics.com - is a great site for anyone short of a specific fabric.  Good luck!
