    "Happy Blooms" HELP Many hours wasted.

    On New Years Day I saw a picture of a quilt made with a Wilmington Fabric Collection called "Happy Blooms" using the panel and co-ordinating fabrics, I promptly ordered the Panel, 10 of the co-ordinating fabrics and the Border Print. I now have all these fabrics in my possession but no picture. When I see pictures of a quilt I like, I usually save it to a file, then when I need inspiration I look at these pictures to give me ideas, unforunately I don't seem to have a picture of this particular quilt. I have checked all my folders on quilting to no avail, I have googled "Happy Blooms" and clicked on images and all I get is pictures of the quilts made from the free pattern offered on the Wilmington Fabric web site, this pattern does not use the panel print. I have also googled Butterfly quilts, Red and Yellow Butterfly Quilts, and a number of other related searches. My brain is telling me it was a picture posted on this board so have spend hours going back through pictures posted before January 1st again to no avail, I have also thought it may have been a picture I saw in a magazine so have spent more hours looking through my latest copies, still no luck though I have started 3 more quilts inspired by things I've seen, so not a total waste of time. I keep telling myself to let it go, Murphy's Law tells me I will find it when I am looking for something else. There must be some reason this quilt needs to be made cos I just can't seem to let it go.

    You the members of this board are my hope for sanity, I haven't asked before now because I know you have many other things you could be doing, but I have exhausted my capabilities and over the years I have seen the lightening quick responses to members requests and ask now if you could please help. The picture is of the woman who made the quilt holding it in her hands. If anyone could be of help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Of course now that I have asked for help, you know what will happen, I will find the picture, but don't let that stop anyone, if you happen to find it please post details. Thank you in anticipation of a favourable outcome.

    Is the panel a butterfly? I'm not sure what you are looking for, so can only recommend that you try Googling images for combinations of "happy blooms butterfly panel quilt wilmington fabrics" to see if you can find a picture.

    Well, I went and tried to find the picture you are seeking, but, like you, I was unsuccessful. Googling just didn't get me there. I hope someone who reads this will recognize the quilt picture AND remember where they saw it. I did see lots of the fabric though...beautiful!! Good luck. Surely someone here can help.

    Although you probably won't find a picture of the quilt you fell in love with, how about googling quilts made from panels? There are lots of those! many seem to be baby quilts but the layout would work for anything! good luck and remember, we want to see pictures.
