Wild Goose Chase - - -

Today I am on a "Wild Goose Chase" - The sort that takes you out of the house and onto the road, which ends up using all the precious sewing time you had ...

I went into my stash and discovered that the fabric that I had used for the last border on my Heart's Desire Quilt was no more than a large scrap.

So I will not be able to get those binding pieces cut out until I can locate some more of this beautiful fabric.....

Yes, it's the same fabric!
The problem with "Letting my fingers do the walking" as they used to say (ringing around) is the COLOUR!  In the sunlight it looks bright blue but take it into the shade and it is quite green. So it is impossible to describe it over the phone!

Well, I can say for sure that if I can't find it here, before my trip away - you can bet that a piece of it will be in my bag!


  1. O_O oh my word...I mentioned to you that I brought back several snowflake-patterned quilting fabrics and a series of fabric in different colours that had branches? Well, your fabric there is almost identical to my branch-patterned fabrics. Alas, I don't have it in the colour that you do.

    I hope you can find some more of it! :D (and if you do, can you let me know where? I'd love to get more of it myself!)

    1. Thanks Fi, I will know whose stash to go shopping in NEXT time! (Seriously - bring some over next visit & we'll let you know how BIG a bargain you got!) Hugs.

  2. Hi, Wendy. Google has a search by image I think you can use to find who has the fabric. Go here: http://www.google.com/insidesearch/features/images/searchbyimage.html
    And thanks for stopping by Applique Thursday!
