    works4me - have you tried the Northcott "fabric locator" ? - they ask for your province and give you a list of who has what in stock (sample screendump):

    Thanks. I've already arranged to buy some more of a couple of the Oh Canada fabrics from 2012 as well as the Oh Canada 2 for 2013 from Along Came Quilting in Alberta.

    She is amazing to deal with.

    Works4me.. Honestly my mouth dropped when I saw your Something International quilt top all together. I am sure it will win many a contest. It is so original and beautiful.
    Have an awesome day!

    Thank you. I still think it's rather busy.

    Sure fits the theme of this thread, though.

    Im watching the sunrise and it looks to be another beautiful day here in Golden Valley, AZ. How is everyone doing?

    Im back to my old self and have five or maybe eight projects going at the same time. Last night I saw a Quilts for Valor pattern that Im very interested in and am thinking I will order the entire kit. Well soon as I can get someone to put the new mail box in the ground for me. Menfolk gotta love em. Then there is the drive to the post office to inform them we are officially ready to be on the mailing route. I also signed up for a quilt class in Kingman in March at the one and only LQS. I cant remember what the technique is called but I have not done it before.. will keep you posted on that fun as it comes around. Have a great day ladies.

    Hugs, Jen
    Have an awesome day!

    Looks like Golden Valley is meant for you!
    Too funny ... signed up for a class and have not clue what it is for.
    I read into that, that you are involved and that's the important thing in all of this!!

    The link above is a picture of the QAYG project Im working on. Also I am still working on the Southwestern wallhanging and I had to shift gears on the Traditional Fourth of July Quilt I am making. Was not able to obtain more of the blues I was working on. So set those squares aside and purchased other Fourth of July seasonal fabrics. Im still working with the square in square designs. Designing as I go.. Im planning on making three panels and then attaching them using the QAYG method. I purchased ample amounts of material so my creativity will not be cramped by running out of a certain fabric. Dulb I am possibly going to be heading to Texas in a few days. When I know for certain will PM you and see if we can set up a lunch date.

    Hello Jenniky,

    Glad to hear you are well and enjoying quilting in Arizona.

    Sunshine... what's that? We're just coming to the end of our coldest March for about 50 years.

    Nothing like thinking ahead for July, I'm impressed! Lovely colours. I love QAYG, it's the only way for me.

    Your runner is wonderful Elisa any US Veteran would be proud to own and appreciate it. I see lots of American TLC went into making it. Thanks so much for sharing it. Definitely an inspiration for me to get busy on my Patriotic Project in Progress
    Have an awesome day!

    Oh well, maybe I can at least inspire.... I have another that was also done awhile back and it hangs in our local library. They are very kind in offering me a space to showcase my work. Here are some pics...

    That is beautiful. Would love to make that for my Active Duty Navy Son and DDIL. She would be thrilled to death to receive a quilt like this.

She wanted patriotic colors soooo... We dug those out of my stash ,I cut out enough 5 in blocks to make a throw for her when she was watching tv. Put on a 1/4 in foot and off we took.!!!!!. got the top done( I set it together ) It is now at the quilter so I can mail it to her in Florida. cant wait to get it to her. She was so proud of herself.Me too. lol When I get it back will post pics.
