    I started a separate thread with this quilt but the blocks, the sashing, the batting and the backing all came from my stash! Don't ask why I bought that lime green peace sign stuff! But I'm glad I did!

    Awesome. Isn't it neat when it all comes together like that.?

    Good luck in your hunt Dragonfly Nana. I have piece of bodacious 70s fabric. I was thinking you might need it, but a printing mistake runs right through the peace signs! At least I had a fun mini-hunt through my own stash.

    Thanks for looking Foxflower. Since I am making signature blocks I might be able to use it if you are still willing to part with it. What could I offer you in trade?
    I have to admit I purchased a fleece backing that has colorful peace signs on black but I could not resist as it was on sale for 2.99 yd!

    The fleece for backing was a good find!

    Well, you're welcome to this if you want it. Here are a couple pics. I took a close up of this peace sign (1 of 2) because it has a (rust?) stain next to it (look above the "Heavy"). This is a truly vintage 30"x30" piece give to me by a friend. It is fairly thin. I used a piece of it to make a great handkerchief for my daughter.

    The printing problem runs through both peace signs.

    I don't need anything in trade if you want it, but IF you happen to have rosebud or rabbit fabric like the ones below, I'm watching for them or something extremely similar that isn't vintage. Any color rosebuds and backgrounds would be fine. Actually, I'd be willing to pay or trade within reason with anyone who has these in their stash. (I finally found 1 piece on ebay in pink. It was pretty common so you'd think there'd be more of it for sale.) Thanks.

    Foxflower - I searched my stash but no rosebuds left. I know I had some of the pink but must have used it all. I will keep a look out though as you said - it is a popular print.
    Wow - that IS a bodacious 70's print - a bit more so than I can use for the quilt I am doing - but thanks for offering.

    Here is one that I just finished - totally from my stash. The lady I work with who had the little girl it is for said "well maybe just a snuggly" for this child. She felt bad because she has two others that I made for previous children. I told her not to worry about it, if she wanted a snuggly, then a snuggly she would have for for Samantha Lynn.
