Thank you so much for the advise. I will definitely see what I can find & get back to work on finishing it.
Well my granddaughter decided not to make her appearance until 1/3/12 but she is healthy & adorable. I loved being able to be there for her birth and to help out until 1/26. I hated to have to leave. Will be making a trip to Maryland again at the end of May.
Before I left for Maryland in December, I ran into a problem with not having enough background fabric to continue with my quilt. I still haven't been able to find any that matches my background fabric. I found some fabric in Maryland that I thought would match (of source I forgot to take a sample with me to Maryland) but it is too dark. I will be going into to town on Thursday so will check at 2 of the local quilt stores to see if they have a possible match.
But what do I do if I can't find a match? I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
Patricia, I am sorry I haven't been here to answer any questions - I had a family emergency and although I am not home yet I do have an internet connection today so that I can spend some time online answering the questions.
In reference to your problem with the background fabric - if you are unable to get anything that completely matches - I would get something in the same color line and closely match and then alternate your blocks - if you only need enough extra fabric for 1 or 2 rows - you could do the different fabric for background on the top and bottom... or the corners if you only need say 4 blocks - and do the other fabric on the outside with the original fabric on the inside... we can work this out...
If you really want to find the matching fabric - do you have the selvage - it should have the name of manufacturer and the dye line - we could hunt for it that way - let me know - I will help search for you!
I'm trying to find the steps,but I can't find them in order. I tried call customer service for helpand they never came on the line. Then I tried leaving them a message and I've not heard back;so I thought I'd try you by this method. As you can see I on the right page but when I hit next, it skips to four. Can you Help me? I'm ready now to start the quilt top. I'm making the 15inch circle I havenot yet decided if I'll make the whole quilt the rings or not. But in the I wll have a king size. Also I thought I should remind you that I'm making the Indian wedding ring.
