So you might remember earlier I was on a hunt for fabric. You can read about it here if you missed it.
I had lots of great suggestions from blog readers on how to find the fabric so I could find the letters I was missing… “H”, “I”, “V”. (Yes I did notice H.I.V. and a blog reader or two did too. One ever made a joke asking if I was sure I wanted HIV!)
Anyway, I had guessed that my friend Ila had gifted me the scraps and I was right. Ila ended up writing me a note that solved most of the mystery.
Ila had made a baby quilt using the fabric. Ila is so sweet and makes baby quilts for babies who are born addicted to crack. This is one that she made using the fabric.
Ila went on to say that the fabric never had the letters “I” and “V”. WHAT??? How does someone design quilt fabric with the alphabet and not have all the letters in it??
I can’t imagine a child poor child who had an “I” or a “V” in their name and couldn’t find their letter on the quilt.
So my hunt for the fabric is over as even if I do find the fabric there is no “I” and no “V” on it anyway. One blog reader suggested just making the letters out of fabric….I might just have to do that.
Thanks to the many, many of you who helped with the hunt. Having friends like you is one of the many reasons I love blogging.
