I am zooming into this century, and playing this weekend on my NEW (old) Pfaff Expressions 2034. What a pleasure to use after a very stiff mechanical1960's machine (which I kept :) ) I pieced my first two blocks and fell in love. Where I got in trouble, is I made the blocks with some fat quarters bundles I had and now need to find more material to do anything meaningful with them. Please take a look at these pics and tell me if you know the name of the manufacturer and/or name of fabric. It has an unusual stribling pattern, and I had one fat quarter of each color. I have enough for 4 twelve inch blocks (already cut out) I need at least two more blocks. I've been trying to squeeze one more block out of the scraps, but it's just not happening.

With the scraps, I'm going to make sandwiches and practice FMQ--the design is already there! :)

Thanks so much for your help!

Very pretty fabrics and nice stitching. Can you go back to the store where you bought them to see if you can get more?

I love the blocks, but I don't recognize the fabric.

Sorry.

They are beautiful. The colors are great. Could you make a medallion for the center with some coordinating fabrics and what you have left and then put these blocks around it? Just an idea.
