WIP Wednesday - Week 28 - Missing some black and white floral! HELP!

At the moment I am a third of the way through sewing down the binding on my Bricks and Mortar quickie quilt. I like the binding bit, all comes together. I am taking it everywhere I can where I am sitting for a few seconds, like waiting for Grace's school to get out or watching Milly's swimming lesson. But for WIP under the machine's needle, I have turned my attention to the next project on "The List"...

It was looking pretty good I thought, the flickr dolls quilt is done, just have to decide which one to send. I'll blog it later in the week, maybe my lovely blog readers can help on that. Time to get back into The Squid Eye!

I have sewn some 6.5 inch squares around the edges. And then I want to do a tiny 1 inch border of black and then white. Trouble is I am out of the black and white print below. Arggggg!!! I am putting it out there to those in Blogland if anyone has any? Its a "Fat Flat" from Spotlight! Its black with tiny white leaves and some stem. I just need one FQ! Just the one! Anyone got one in their stash? I'll do a FQ swap! Then after that its putting down the smaller squid eyes on the outside 6.5 inch border. I was thinking 2 eyes per square, but now maybe 3. I need more vixeofix! Gee Helen, running out of stuff lately aren't you? Get thee to a quilt shop tomorrow girl!

Seriously if anyone out there has that Fat Flat print, pop a comment in or email me, please, please, please!

Love your squid eye quilt. I love the color combo of white, black, and red. So cute! Good luck finding that fabric. I wish I had it for you. I love your header with the winding flying geese. Where did you get the pattern for that?

Bugger Helen - I don't have that fabric. Come to think of it, I don't have any B&W fabric...must remedy that!

Squid Eye is looking fab by the way!

That squid-eye quilt is so pretty! I'm sorry I can't help you out with the fabric. I'm going fabric shopping tomorrow, and I'll look for it. You have to have it to finish this beauty :-) Keeping my fingers crossed.
Love the new header too!
