Fabric Emergency is Over!

Here are the blocks I've done so far. I have decided to make 2 more pink because in the arrangement I am doing, the green on the peach flowers looks too light, so I might only use 2. I need 10 altogether. The leafy fabric is auditioning for the setting triangles.

I can't believe it but I found that fabric! After searching through different sites & emailing a quilt guild in BC (who were willing to help), this morning I googled underwater fabric and found it! Pretty lucky considering I didn't know a thing about it. Lesson to be learned: try to always get fabric with the info on the selvage! I probably could've found something that would work, but you know how it is when you really think a fabric is perfect. So I hope it is.

I'm glad that you were able to find the fabric! You are so right about buying fabric with the selvages...not only does it help if you need to find more of that particular fabric, but you also will have the selvages for the all important selvage projects!
