    Have you ever seen a quilt or blanket in a magazine and just had to have it? But instead of buying it, you made it yourself?

    I found this really cute quilt in Pottery Barn Teen (PB Teen) and fell in love with this one quilt that I saw in there. But they want 180 dollars for it... so now I'm on a mission to find similar fabrics to the one used in the blanket.

    Even if all I find is something similar I'll be happy! It's the flower pattern that will be the search! Thanks!

    I hope I can. The blue and the green for sure I can find similar, maybe even the rings, but the flowers is a little difficult... but I'm looking... wish I knew their fabric distributor.

    I'm thinking about a yard or a yard and a half. Thank you for keeping an eye out, let me know if you find it! Or something similar.

    Try looking in the Batiks for the right colors, then the strips could be painted or hand embroidered on the flowers if you had to, or maybe you'll find the right color with a different design that would work. You don't have to duplicate it exactly, do you? I'll be watching to see what you come up with. Very nice.
