I'm Begging For Fabric

Buzz Saw blocks are still being worked on. I thought once I got 30 blocks finished I could start putting them into a top (shown here before mixing them). Well, son #2 has been watching me stitch away on these and walks over after I lay them on the floor and says, "I know that quilt is going to be bigger than that, right?" I assured him it still had an inner and outer border. He stood there for a minute and said, "It would really be nice for this quilt to go over my feet and head." I quickly glance to the floor, glance back at him; when did he get so tall? I suppose there was a day when it would have covered him but the boy grew up and is taller than me now. So this afternoon I scrambled and worked up 5 more blocks for additional length. Now I'm in a pickle and need some fabric because I cut into what was to be used for the inner border.

Please, please check your stash and see if you can sell me 1/2 yd of this Moda that came out about 4 years ago? It is a an ivory/cream with tan/beige birds and vines. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. (and son #2 thanks you too!)

OMG!OMG! You are not going to believe this - I'm working on a project and using the very same print. I want to make the quilt larger but only have one yard of the fabric so my hands are tied. I was thinking about begging on my blog, too. This is way to strange. I might have some of what you need - I'll have to check.

Walking away shaking my head. LOL

Oh crud, that looks like it didn't work. Let's try it this way . . . .
Go to Quiltshops.com and select 'Item Search' Type in Moda 3 Sisters Favorites II. Several selections from that line come up. It's hard to tell if any are the right colorway you are looking for. Good luck *s*

Oh, Mary, I sure wish I had some to send you! I'll ask my quilting buddies here but most use kits so don't have stashes. As you know, my buzz saw only became a throw because I, too ran out of my light fabric. I even had to piece some scraps to have enough for the inner border!

Oh man that's not good, I would be happy to send you some if I had that fabric. I hope you can find what you need. It's a wonderful quilt.
