Searching for fabric - and the deal of the week!

I am designing a new quilt, that I will publishing soon, but I have a little problem.  I am in desperate need of about a half yard of fabric!  It is from the Jo Morton line called Ember Reds and Evergreen.  This line is a few years old, so I'm having trouble finding it.  I did locate it on a website, and ordered 3 yards, but it turned out that they only had ONE yard - YIKES!  Well, I made it work for the quilt top, but I really think I need to use this fabric for binding.  So....can anyone help me out?  It is a black background and you can see the small print with green leaves and gold berries.  If you happen to have it, I would be thrilled to buy it from you!

If you are on my e-mail list, you will have already received the following info, but if not - please read!  We are having a special on the website this week....


Did you know that the United States Postal Service has increased their rates again?  BOO!  It does not make me happy, but there sure isn’t anything that we can do about it.  You all know that I love my mail lady and I also love my tiny local post office – and am very thankful to have them.  I know a lot of people don’t have it as good as we do – they really take care of me and go the extra mile and I appreciate it.  I would feel much better about this increase if it were going in the pockets of the people who look out for me!  There was also an increase in postage last year about this same time.  With that being said, I am going to have to raise my shipping rates.  I did not increase my prices last year, but I can’t keep eating these costs.  So…my deal to you is this…my postage will remain the same until next weekend.  So, anything you order this week, you will still receive my old rates.  Anything from Sunday on will be charged the new rates. 

Over the last several days, I have added several new pieces to the website, but thought I would share these as well.  The following pictures are things that we finished over the weekend.  You won’t find them on the website yet, but if you are interested in any of them, just send me an e-mail.


 Please do your best to ignore the awful glare on the red log cabin below!

As always you can see more items on my website!

Have a great week!

  1. I don't have that print, Julie--sorry. I thought I did, but it was something similar.
    I hope someone has it for you!
    You've made some great new pieces, my dear!

  2. I did a little web surfing, while trying to keep my fingers and toes warm and moving in this $#*&@#?&$ weather. This website -- http://www.quiltedcrow.net/qcstore-andovera.html -- appears to have the black print you need.
    Good luck!

  3. You can whinge about the postal service - ours has raised their prices, AND are considering reducing deliveries to 3 times per week if you don't mind! The rumours abound, and Australia Post is not confirming or denying, so we shall have to wait and see. I received a card today from the UK posted on the 15th January! That is 13 days. Not. Good. Enough.
