    Does anybody know anything about the fabric that is in the center of my blocks? It is deep purple with suns

    I got a piece of it in a scrap bag from a quilter doing some downsizing. The fabric piece was about 9" x 17"

    Found some great coordinating fabrics in my stash, and made two blocks. They are each 21" (rather large quilting blocks). I'm hoping to track down the fabric manufacturer to see if I can buy 1/4 yard more. If not, I won't be devastated.

    Wow, nice blocks. Even though the blocks are so big, the scale of each of the fabrics really make it work.

    Sorry, no idea on the make or manufacturer of that fabric.


    You could try posting it over at http://missingfabrics.com/.

    Beautiful blocks. Don't know the name of the fabric. If you take it to a fabric store or quilt shop, they should be able to identify it for you. Good luck.

    I guess I could make a pair of table toppers or a pair of wallhangings.

    Awesome, what a coincidence is this? Jennifer22206 and I are July doll swap parters.

    anyway, I'm only looking for a FQ and will pay retail price for it. I can make 4 more blocks out of a fQ. My center squares are cut at 7.5"

    Could be, but it doesn't look like Laurel Burch - the colors maybe, but not the stylized motifs.

    Here's the panel

    No faces. Unless it was a coordinating fabric.
