    After looking in 2-3 places, I can usually find the shade of whatever color I need.
    Last wk I was stumped trying to find rose color yardage.The stores have pale pink,hot pink,reddish pink ,a purple pink....but no rose.
    Was afraid to trust colors on line & finally bought the 2yds I needed. It's close, but still not the perfect rose. :roll: :roll:

    For awhile I could find a lot of purple, but right now it is hard to find.

    Colors go in and out of style regularly. For a long time it was impossible to find yellows. That's one reason why quilters build a "stash".

    What color fabric is hardest to find?
    Usually the color I need to finish off an almost complete quilt.

    I think the raspberries and the orchids are the hardest to find, personally. When i like something, I really want a very distinctive shade of it.
    I am getting better at finding things online, but you can only tell to a degree. I'm not picky, I just care a lot, lol! :XD:

    Every year the palette changes... I have been collecting a particular shade of turquoise and lavendar for 4 years now... It will take me 25 years to get what I need at this rate :roll: :lol::lol: :D:D:D

    Reds are hard to find. There are lots of reds but never in the shade I want/need at the time.
