So, I was all excited to tell you that I found the missing Neptune fabrics. I placed the order and started writing this post.
A little while later I got a phone call from from someone from Quilters Anonymous. It was a phone call intervention! Oh no!
It took me a second to realize that the woman was from the website where I just ordered fabric and I was both relieved (I mean, really, I don't need an intervention) and saddened. Saddened because three of the prints I just ordered were out of stock and one of them was the very same fabric I couldn't find anywhere else for under $22 a yard (which I downright won't pay!)
So, Jennifer, I was all set to tell you that I didn't need you to check your local quilt store for Neptune fabric but now, well, if the offer still stands, can you look for this fabric:
It's called Caspian and the color is Pacific. Let me know if you find any...I'm in the market for anything up to two yards. I really appreciate you checking for me.
*edit*Marylin and Ashley sent me to Hollyhill and I just sent them an email...I hope they have some in stock! We'll see...hopefully soon because my poor heart can't take all this disappointment.*/edit*
Also, since we're talking about fabric, my first Neptune delivery showed up in the mail yesterday. And look...aqua Neptune goes pretty well with aqua Mendocino:
I was secretly hoping it would because I want to use it in the quilt for my mom and aunt, both fabrics being sea themed and all.
I'm still not sure of a layout for the quilts. I'm thinking long strips to show off the swimming mermaids. The movement in that fabric is so great, I don't want to break it up. I also want it to feel more organic than fussy. Hmmm...
