    Are you sure that isn't applique? I had a friend that has the same exact pattern that she was appliquing. Weird same colors too. Oh I hadnt scrolled down to see the batik one I was talking about the one at the top with all the flowers. Sorry

    Yes, it's applique. I have the OESD embroidery designs for this. I just need the fabric.

    I have some of that fabric, only just a few strips. That was one that I used in a Batik Fabric Fling I made. I bought it at this place. She does have some batiks on the web site, BUT I CAN guarantee you shes got 100's of bolts of just Batiks. When we go to the Oregon Coast, I always stop by there. Give her the webpage for that quilt and ask her if she has that particular fabric.

    Fabricfanatics.com has some of it left for $8.50 a yard.

    I messed up my bom so I am going to be searching for some of it as well. If you are doing hand applique do not use the accu quilt dies, I found out the hard way and wasted all my bom kit fabric.

    Thanks, I'll look into it. No, I'm not using any dies, I've got the CD and I have to cut out the appliques by hand. What problem did you run into with the dies?

    There is no seam allowance on the dies although they are advertised big time for applique.

    I wonder if the dies are supposed to be used with the OESD CD as there are no seam allowances-it's fused. Here's a sample block I did. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-78320-1.htm I used scrap fabric to do a sample before I spent $$ and got the batiks. Ouch that's not good:< Did you complain to them?

    I actually spoke with Sharon Pederson herself today, in hand applique you use it to cut out your freezer paper templates only. But I cannot find this in writing anywhere. And I can tell you from posting on the accu quilt list today that the OESD is not compatible with the dies, so many complaints on it.

    I told the LQS I was going to cut them out with that and not one person mentioned it not working. So frustrated about the whole thing and the money lost. I might just skip this block and see if I can get more pieces for it out of scrapes from other blocks because I cannot seem to find anywhere to buy the fabric locally or online.

    So, the dies are only good for the paper templates and then you're supposed to add the seam allowance? That's crazy! I can see why people would be upset! I e-mailed Accuquilt to ask if the dies were compatible with the OESD CD as I have the Studio cutter and they told me the dies weren't made for the CD. But, that's VERY frustrating:<

    The site that you gave me doesn't have the fabric you need?

    I am going to go there tomorrow to look, I am not one to have patience looking for fabric online. But they carry only batiks and nothing else. I know they have pieces of the line as I bought the sashing fabric last weekend before I realized I messed up the rest of the cuts.

    Shoot. Good luck. That's really disappointing:< Did Sharon tell you what's going on with the dies not matching up to the patterns?

    They are designed for raw edge machine applique.

    Batiks are $8.49/yd. Quick shipping. They also have some exclusive prints you can't get anywhere else.

    I think those are some of the prettiest batiks I've seen! I don't think they carry the specific line I need, but yummy none the less!

    Well Candace,

    I called fabric fanatics and they are out of town at a show so will have to wait until next week. But I would suggest if your lqs will sell the fabric to you to buy it now.

    I have spent the morning calling and searching and no one has it that will sell it. I called Hancock of Paduch and they are on back-order until April.

    Would you mind sharing the name of your quilt shop so maybe I can call and see if they will sell me any of it as well.

    Thanks,
