It is very pricey.......about 22 per meter. I have never bought on ebay so I will check that out.

    It was me!!!! This was my fabric for the Boom 6.0 swap. I have almost finished the quilt now and will post soon. The fabric came from a shop called Spotlight, it was last years fabric so i doubt there would be much around. When I got it they were in the process of discontinuing it so it was $9.95 a meter, but i dont have any left now. They also did the same design with a white background.
    I use to find excuses to buy shoes, now I find excuses to buy fabric.

    daisey, don't click post quick reply, didn't work for me. Click on GO ADVANCED, then you go to your pics wherever you save them on your computer, click upload and it will appear here....takes awhile sometimes be patient. Hope this helps maybe?

    To get that in your quick reply you have to have your settings set up that way, some one walked me through it when we first started with the new look, I just can't remember how to set up my settings!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Sigh...we still have a long time before sign up closes don't we April?

    How are we looking on #'s so far...do we need to hijack other swap threads with hints of fun and adventure so they'll swamp you with sign ups?

    I found some of the russian doll fabric at equilter: http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc...17112457802.d3. It may not be exact, but is similar.

    More inspiration to finish up your tops... here is one that I finally got put together from the Boomerang 5 East swap in late 2011. I made 6 blocks to finish up and the 4 half blocks for fillers. We staggered them with the black dots and really like how it ended up. I provided the rainbow striped fabric and asked for "fun & funky" blocks and I think everyone came in a winner. I wanted to use it for a fund raiser for our family readiness group (FRG -Army National Guard Families) but I don't think I will get it finished in time...maybe for next year.

    Dad is such a slave driver I might actually get all my blocks together sometime. I've got blocks for a patriotic one yet and a funky chicken layout along with a funky cat layout....my brain is tired.

    I am finishing this up and posted on the old site but will post here also for the new participants to be able to see what everyone came up with and what I got when I received my blocks back from the fabric I sent. My fabric was of the clay pots and this is everyone's blocks. I think it's going to be a pretty awesome quilt. Name:  DSCF0716.JPG

    Jaba, I love your quilt, it turned out very nice. The colors look very nice together. Is there a tutorial on the boards to do the Attic Window Sashing? I think I have the 12 in block, I might be able to figure it out. OK back to 1 1/2 inch squares, how did quilters do it before rotary cutters?
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!
