    I am on a mission to locate Raggety Ann and Andy fabric (yardage) to finish a quilt my mother started 20 years ago. I have searched and haven't found much. Ebay has Vintage, but they also want the price of my first puppy.

    If I cannot find the material I need for the quilt, I will show you all the quilt top and gather input and suggestions.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

    susan_m - I bought some fabric at an Estate sale last summer and this was in it. It is not new but I have no idea how old it is.

    That fabric reminds me of the 70's. What a nice find.

    The colors are great. I really like this. I will take a picture of the quilt top and post it and see what you all think. Raggedy Ann and Andy are hand embroidery. Please let me clarify; the quilt top is 20 years old, the backing does not have to be. -- Just really trying to a find fabric that will go with it.

    How much yardage is there in this piece?

    The blue that is part of the quilt top is a crazy color of blue (not my pick) but it is what it is. I plan on incorporating a thin red and white small pattern border and a blue and white vintage print larger border.

    You folks are absolutely awesome. Thanks so much.
    Susan

    Have you thought of making the dolls to go with the quilt? I have an old pattern of Ann & Andy I made about 25 years ago. I think McCalls patterns carry the pattern too in their book.

    Folks here are pic's of the quilt and the fabric that I found for the borders. thanks for suggestions and links.

    As you can see, the colors are predominately red, white, and a crazy blue. Mom embroider some other filler type blocks, but I am concentrating on the Raggedy Ann and Andy.

    Thoughts suggestions are appreciated The dimension of the quilt top is 32x68. The friend that helped my Mom do this pieced each block backed with batting. I would like to even it out as well, since the dimensions are a bit off.

    Thank you in advance for your help. **as a side note--I have not been quilting all that long -- about 7 -8 years and all self taught.
