Thread: Looking for a Fabric

    Hello.

    I am searching for a specific fabric. My two friends and I started a friendship quilt, choosing different blocks and creating three of each block design. One of my friends has since passed and so my other friend and I are finishing her blocks for the quilt. I need a specific fabric to make a third of one of her patterns but I have no idea where she got it. I searched some quilt shops but nothing came close.

    If you know what this fabric is called, where I could buy it, if you have some I could buy off of you, or any information, I would be more than grateful!

    Thank you for your time.

    So sorry I have never seen this fabric! I hope you are able to find it though. Ya, a great idea as said before is to check selveges.

    Nope, no selvages. What I have is what I have.

    We started the quilt at the beginning of this year. However, my friend has been collecting different fabrics for years and years.

    Thank you for your advice =)

    I have never seen this one either. But, a small suggestion??? I have a could scrappy programs that suggest you buy something very close to it and use that. Often you can find one that is so simular, you can hardly tell the difference.

    Yes, I agree with Garnet. Possibly you could use a toile (toele? tiole?) You know what I mean. It would give you something to talk about and remember your friend when the difference comes up in conversation.
