I started a 7 Sisters block using a bluish-grayish fabric that an acquaintance termed "colonial" blue. I'm having a Dickens of a time finding more fabric to finish it off.

The next time I have a brilliant plan that includes an odd color, please tap me on the back of the head....

That's just one, and I have no way of knowing if it's the exact color you're looking to match.

But do a search on "colonial blue" at these sites. Hopefully, something will match or come close enough.

I'm a lime green kinda gal myself, so I know I have nothing here that's even in the ballpark. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

LOL - thank you. The fabric is such an odd color that I really need to wander from quilt shop to quilt shop (or wherever) to match it up. (darn on the store hopping)

Luckily I am not in a hurry to get this thing done.

Good luck with your fabric search. Blues seem to be harder than the other colors. Don't know why.

Those blocks are really pretty. The blues don't look all the same, so maybe you can just get different complimentary blues to finish the quilt. Maybe do all the blocks different.
