    Does Your Fabric Ever Hide on You?

    I had some gorgeous fabric I'd put under my table so I could admire it until I was able to work on the project it was for. A white table runner with various denim blue shades of flowers/vines from Quilter's World. My sister has been cheering me on throughout my quilting experience & has never gotten a thing from me, so I thought she'd really like this. I finally get the chance to start it, actually made my templates & then couldn't find the fabric! I've tossed every area I could think of that it might be! This place isn't that big!!! I just know it's going to turn up again any day now, but I don't care. I love the fabric & a girl can never have enough blues in her stash! :-) Thank goodness Favorite Fabrics came through for me with the very fabric I'd lost & it got here fast too! I'm really impressed! Love the gorgeous fabrics, so perfect for this pattern! I know my sister will love it when I'm done. For now, it's a secret though. LOL!

    The day after you give the table runner to your sister, you will find the missing fabric.

    I did that one time, with my vest I had crazy quilted. Searched every where. Found it several days later. I had put it in a pillow case in my linen closet. I never store anything in plastic.

    The runner is just stunning! It's my belief that your fabric was taken by the sticky fingered sock gnomes that steal out of your clothes dryer. They are no longer satisfied to mess up a perfectly good pair of socks and are onto bigger and better things. The very fact that they swiped the batiks makes me rest my case.

    I love your table runner ! It is so classic /classy ! If you find your fabric , check and see if there is a quilt pattern with it , mine seems to have run off.

    I sure hope your fabric is not hiding in your freezer, that is where I found my reading glasses when last they made a dash for freedom.

    Well, now you have enough fabric to make one for yourself!

    Good luck finding your fabric. It seems that I am always loosing something, right after I put it in a "safe" place. By the way, that table runner is beautiful. I'm sure your sister will love it.

    I love your runner, so beautiful. I have lost so much fabric in the past, now looking for a bag with all the fabric and pattern I put together to have ready to start. Now where is it hiding? Have turned this place upside down and have not found it.

    No, unfortunately I haven't found the fabric, but I have the new pieces and started cutting tonight. It has to turn up sooner or later though! :-)

    Beautiful table runner, and I too have had fabric that hides. I am sure the problem lies with me. When I put things in special spots for safe keeping, they stay way too safe!!!
