    I just finished a Queen size flannel quilt made from Marcus Bros.
    Sachet Potpourri flannel by Faye Burgos. I made the binding from the soft pink with polka dots fabric. As I was sewing it on, and got to the last edge, I came up about 8 inches too short!
    I have looked everywhere for this fabric, quiltshops.com, fabsearch, everywhere on the internet. Please if anyone has a scrap of this flannel fabric I would be glad to pay you for it. The quilt is for my daughters birthday next month. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a good day.

    awww. so sorry!

    Just one point, if you can't find the exact fabric, if it is at the "bottom" of the quilt, just match the color as best you can, and it will tuck in at the end of the bed.

    Is that any comfort?

    Hey, Just went to M. Bro. website, they say if you send a swatch, they will help you locate. Do you have the selvedge or any scraps?

    http://www.marcusbrothers.com/cgi-bi...ry/gallery.cgi

    type in the name of the fabric to the search field. Here's the message I got.

    Your search results for “Sachet Potpourri” Please Note: If you are searching for a particular Marcus Fabrics print from a past collection, we're happy to try to help you locate it. Because we have so many prints available, we're best able to assist you if you'll SEND A SWATCH of the print (instead of a written description), Attn: Customer Service. Be sure to include your name, address, phone and email address.

    If you can't find something to fill in the gap, perhaps you can make a really nice narrow label to go over the missing edge.

    I would send a color photo copy to Marcus Bros. If you don't have enough you can't make a swatch.

    Wishing you well in your search.

    You can search by name/manufacturer or by picture. I didn't find any by searching by name/manufacturer, but maybe you can upload a picture and find some that way.

    Thank you everyone for your replys. Sorry I dont have a way of sending pictures. I think I will just try to match the shade of pink and go with that.
