I had a terrible dilemma, I had run out of this fabric for making my alternating blocks. And I had only half the number of blocks that I needed.
I purchased this fabric over a year ago. No way would the fabric store still have any left. I fussed and thought trying to incorporate another fabric. I fussed and thought some more, but none of my ideas wouldn't work not with the amount of green fabric I had. I really wanted to keep the same design. I like the secondary pattern the alternating blocks make with the Civil War blocks. I sure didn't want to start over with another fabric and make all those blocks again. So knowing that it was hopeless I went to the fabric store at lunch today. And Surprise! Surprise! (Do you all remember Gomer Pyle?) They had 1 yard left!!! (On Sale!)
Now who is ready to cut fabric and make blocks? ME!
Happy Cutting and Stitching!
Wait! Wait! I have more to tell you. My husband went with me to the store. He was looking at fabric and talking about making another quilt. He told me he wanted to make a Fat Quarter Quilt, I told him "You don't even know what a Fat Quarter is". He said "Yes I do!", and took me straight to the fat quarters. Yikes! I think he's been listening to me after all. I suppose if he knows what one is, he should make a quilt from them. We'll need a different shopping trip so he can take his time picking out his fabric.
