Quilt With Us

Yippy Skippy, my material arrived, or what to do when you fall short on material

I started a new quilt pattern this month and posted a picture of one of the blocks.  I decided that I wanted a different center piece and started working on that.  I got back to cutting out the pieces for the remaining blocks and realized that I was going to fall short on one of the colors.  I knew where I had gotten the material late last year and I know that I had scene the material recently.  I went in search of.  Turns out the LQS that is closing had sold out of the material. I expanded the search.  Took my daughter to Seattle to check out the stores. That was a mistake.  We ended up at a mall then Ikea.  Amazing what you can fit into a little car! The internet search was on. It turns out that the material I needed comes in several different shades of blue.  I sent out samples of the material to a few companies.  Delta Patchworks in TN identified the color but only had one yard of the material.  I wanted more!  Armed with this information I continued my search.  Last weekend I found a site that had the material and I ordered. I've never ordered from any other site and was a little worried but the material arrived today and matches the color I have perfectly.  I'm sure my mailman thinks I am a nut case.  I was waiting on the mail and saw that he was trying to get the box into the mail box. I'm sure he was apprehensive about coming to the door. Hes heard the herd of dogs and witnessed me jumping out the door and trying to keep the dogs in the house.  I don't know why he's worried.. The dogs only bite me for answering the door! Happy camper here.  I am back in business.

Hi Pam the dark blue is the one that I had to do the search for.  I love the colors too.  I wanted to start the website earlier this month but when I went to convert files to downloadable files my pictures had disappeared. I had to remake a couple of the blocks again.  I will try again this weekend to get everything up and running.  I will of course disconnect phones and not answer the door or get talked into a quick trip to the store with my daughter.  Thats the plan anyway. some how I don't think it will work.
