Default Need help please - anyone recognize the fabric

I started a quilt over 8 years ago and ran out of fabric to enlarge it. Both pieces were purchased at Joann's. Does anyone recognize the fabric?? I've seen it posted somewhere on here a store that has stacks upon stacks of bolts of fabric to the point of being hazardous to shop there...(lol) and they might have what is needed. Does anyone have the name and address? If I send them a scrap to locate it by will they ship it to me?000_0074.jpg

If it helps to know the name of the fabric, the blue and white one is by Susan Winget China Blue Birds. Sorry I can't help with the name of the store or the other blue fabric. Perhaps they were from the same line.

I think the shop you are thinking of, with huge stashes of older fabrics stacked almost to the ceiling, is in Amish country in Pennsylvania, somewhere near Intercourse. I've never been there but am aware of it's reputation. Maybe someone else here will remember the name of the shop.

Sometimes, a project started several years ago, just isn't meant to be enlarged. Good luck finding it all the same. Perhaps if you show us your project, some of these great quilters could give you some ideas as to what to do if you can't find the fabric. There are a lot of China Blue fabrics out there, maybe one of those will work.

The 'stuffed' store in Pa. is Obie's in East Earl Pa.. They are helpful & probably would ship. The clerk was really willing to do all possible when I was there looking for that needle in a haystack kind of fabric to match what I had in order to finish a project.
Use MR Google for a phone number if you need to ask questions.

I have a pc of that blue fabric and I am pretty sure it is called Fusions by Robt. Kaufmann So maybe that will help
