Can You Help?

My friend Bilbo over at Bag End has put a request out. Can anyone help her?

This is Bilbo's post from her blog.

A non-quilter might reasonably assume that given the size of my fabric stash, I already have all the material I might need for any quilt which I could want to create in future. Oh, how wrong could you be?

I so want (need?) another yard, preferably two, of this fabric. From Hoffman International, called "Fantasies" and at least 5 years old, probably older.

I've searched Quiltshops.com, eBay, Big Horn, Hancocks, Thousands of Bolts and Doughtys, plus a worldwide Google search and drawn a blank, which in truth, does not surprise me. So for the first time (but maybe not the last) I thought I'd use Bag End to ask all my quilting buddies if somewhere, somehow, lurking at the bottom of a pile, you might just have . . . pretty please . . . and I will happily pay full list for it plus postage. Perhaps if I had more of this fabric I might have the inclination to finish the blocks which need it?

Thank you so much for doing this, I didn't ask and certainly didn't expect.

Gorgeous fabric. Wish I could help but I haven't even seen this on my internet travels, let alone have any in my stash. So hope someone out there can help. :0)

Hi Angela
Sorry I can't help with the fabric I see you looked at Hancocks, has your friend tried The Bramble Patch, very helpful on the phone.
I have finished my PIFs so need you to email me with your address please..

I don't have that fabric in my stash - if I did I'd happily send it to you. There is a store in Fort Gratiot, Michigan called Sew Elegant (sewelegant.com) that stocks 11,000 bolts of fabric. Whenever I've been looking for a piece of fabric that is more than a year or two old, I go there. And I've been lucky every time. You may want to try them. Hopefully they can help.
