I haven’t posted anything about the Topsy Turvy Nine Patch (TTNP) since I discovered I couldn’t find more background strips.
I thought I had enough fabric but since I pulled it from my stash I couldn’t be absolutely sure. I either hid the strips from myself or I really didn’t have enough. So I’ve been on the hunt for more of the fabric….it’s from the Olivia line and has “OLIVIA” in medium cream repeated over and over on a cream background. I spent several weeks searching the internet finding all kinds of Olivia fabric but none of the cream colorway. I finally reconciled myself to substituting another fabric. I was sure I’d find a suitable one in Paducah and while there, stopped to visit Judy Laquidara. I mentioned my TTNP problem and she graciously offered to add a picture on her blog and ask if anyone had any of the OLIVIA fabric for me. Something told me I’d better search the internet one more time before sending the picture to Judy…..as luck would have it, I found it at Be Sew Happy Quilt Shop. I received my package yesterday!!!
I had to order a couple of other fabrics to justify the postage now didn’t I? Now I can get back to the TTNP 🙂
Speaking of Judy, she reviewed Quiltmaker’s Small Quilts magazine and since she liked it, I took a peak at it. As you can see, I liked it too 😉 It has some really cute quilts.
I’ve spent a bit of time in waiting this week and the 6th Vicksburg FREE BOM is almost done because of it 🙂
