    Yup, i did it, i did the unthinkable! I ran out of fabric on my rose quilt! Can you believe that, i cant, i cant believe i actually did that. I'm doing a buttercup log cabin block, and the blocks are half ways done, and they need two more strips of white around them. Good thing im doing them assembly line style, instead of having half of them complete!!! lol lol Yup, i ran out of white lol, yeah, i have lots of white around here, so i thought i had no worries lol lol, nope, none of my whites match this white! Can you believe it? I cant lol lol Soooo, anyways, im just making a change of plans then. Instead of using white in the outer strips, i will use a tan, not what i had planned on, but hey, my quilts never usually finish the way they started out to be planned! LOL LOL LOL

    Good for you to just change your design! But if you really need it, did you check out Hamels, Quilt Essentials, It's a Great Notion, Quiltopia, Quilters Treasures, Countryfolk????

    Good thing to be flexible. I know the quilt will be wonderful, and who knows, you may decide you like it better this way.

    It never fails to amaze me how hard it is to match blacks and whites exactly. It'll look great, regardless

    Barb, I think that's happened to all of us.
    I'm sure that whatever you decide to do will be just awesome.
    That quilt is so pretty to begin with.
    Now, hurry and finish so we can see it completed! :)

    Oh yeah, been there, done that. Made trips to LQS -- with "what do I do now? Can you help me match?" more than I want to admit :roll: :roll:

    I think we have all been in this situation at one time or another. I like Sandpat's "bonus design opportunity". Necessity is the mother of invention, or in this case, the mother of your creativity.
