    I thought I was going crazy.

    A few months ago I starts collecting fabrics for a quilt. Whenever I found an interesting FQ I would put it in the designated box. Being a Canadian living in the USA I was tickled when I found this beautiful maple leaf patterned FQ. Last week I started cutting my pieces by maple lead fabric was nowhere to be found. My stash is not bid but it still took me a long time to destroy my sewing room looking for the darn thing. It dissapeared BUT the strange thing is I found this gorgeous Star pattern fabric that looked identical to the maple leaf fabric but it had stars in stead. Mystery solved, I must have grabbed the wrong FQ at the store - NOT! I started to cut the fabric and it hits me the stars fabric IS the maple leaf fabric! If you are looking for maple leaves they are blue on the white background and if you are looking for stars they are white on blue background. It is one of those times when your mind plays tricks with you and I thought that I simply went crazy.

    That is great. Sorry you can't make this reversible. Unless you want to hang it without doing any quilting at all. Can you use both sides and mix them or is the maple leaf winning out?

    I'd love to see a picture of this puzzling fabric.
