Frustrated something awful this afternoon!   While traveling, I put together what was going to be a quilt top from a Layer Cake that I'd had on hand a couple of years.  Now, I've decided that I want that fabric to be a new cover for the bed in the RV.  However, there's not enough blocks from the layer cake to make it like I want.  

I've been figuring and figuring for hours trying to find a new design that I like and its just not working.  Now, you might know that the fabric collection I'm using, Fresh Cottons by Moda, isn't readily available, particularly as layer cakes.   Have found it a couple of places and may have to order.  On Thursday, I'll be close to town and will go on in to the quilt shop and see what they have in the collection.  I called them and, although they don't have a layer cake, they do have a few of the fabrics from the collection.  Maybe that'll work.

Meanwhile, I'll just move on to another project!!!

Y'all take care.  


  1. May be next link will help you to find the necessary fabric -

    one more -

  2. If you change a design you love to fit the fabric you have on hand you will hate the resulting quilt forever (or at least be deeply disappointed with it). You don't need to ask me how I know this to be A Truth!

    Go on, just buy the additional layer cake from wherever you have to and what you don't use on the top can be pieced into an interesting back! I always make pieced backs and they're far more fun than one huge expanse of the same fabric :}

  3. Oh! I hope you find the fabric! Sounds frustrating!

  4. It does sound frustrating, I'm not familiar with any of this but there is an unbelievable fabric story in Portland Oregon called Fabric's huge..anyway I went online and searched layer cake and this is the page I found..maybe it will help.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. xo

  5. Oooooo, don't you just hate that. You are so creative though, I know you'll come up with something brilliant because of this.
