    I'm hoping some of you can help me out with the pattern name for this Benartex batik fabric. I bought some at my LQS last summer, but went back yesterday for more and they had sold it all. All I know is that it was a Benartex fabric. I want to find out the pattern name so I can see if I can find some online somewhere. As you can see from the pics, it is a gray color with a green cast to it. Can anyone help?

    In the photo Katie, it looks like the one next to what you quoted, the one with teal instead of sage, is it to me.

    That is beautiful. It almost looks like marble.

    It's so hard to tell with batiks. One section will look one color, and another section will look different. Plus variances in the bolts. Eddie will have to make that call as he's got the fabric in front of him. If you look at his pictures, some squares show mainly gray tints and others more green. Without seeing the full width, it still might be hard to tell.

    Eddie, how much are you looking for?

    I think it is that Charcoal/Sage rather than the Teal/Gold one, although it is really hard to tell. When I look at the actual fabric in my hands I see that yellowish sage like you see in my second picture above and in the Charcoal/Sage on the Benartex site. The dominate colors, though, in my fabric is the gray and a cool green like what you see in my first pic up there.

    I'm hoping to find several yards of this, like 6 or 7, but would take whatever I can find.

    I hope you can find some! Next time I'm at my LQS, I'll look. If she's got it, maybe she'll let you buy it via phone and ship it. If you do find it, let me know! Good luck! :)

    I'm still looking for some, but not having any luck. :( I'm sure there's probably an entire bolt sitting in someone's quilt shop somewhere just gathering dust.

    Somewhere on this Board there's a post about
    www.missingfabrics.com
    Seems the quiltshops check to see what folks are looking for and let you know if they have it. Might be worth a try...I haven't used it yet but I know there will come a day.
    Good luck!

    Eddie, if you send a swatch to Keepsake quilting in NH they may be able to match it for you. Unfortunately they rename fabrics from manufacturers and sell by color. I thought that was odd but this is what they told me when I was looking for a specific fossil fern fabric. Anyway, their batik room is the size of most medium size quilt shops. I have a feeling if they don't have it nobody will. Good luck

    Any luck Eddie?

    I looked while I was at my LQS and didn't see anything. One suggestion, check out some of the shops on the Shop Hop list. I have found in my own searches that not all of them pull up thru Google and that things are not always listed by the pattern name on the Manufacturer's website. For instance, you may search on Benartex, Batik, Bali, Gray, Grey, Sage, or any combination of the above. Sometimes, it's easier to just browse the batiks. It takes awhile though. Some have so many, you'd have to browse thru 20+ pages...dangerous for me as I'd surely find something I just MUST have! LOL

    Missing Fabrics worked out well for me. I posted something I was looking for there and got a response within a couple of days of someone who had what I was looking for. I sure hope you can find it!

    Send a swatch to Keepsake Quilting and they'll match it for you if it's still available.

    Eddie, if you do send swatches out, be sure to try and capture the color variances. I think I'd attach a photo too. The one from your first post shows the colors well.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm going to try www.missingfabrics.com first and see if I have any luck. If not there, then I'll try Keepsake quilting. Thanks again! :D
