Quilting fabric

I went back to the Chevy dealer in Gallup yesterday(to get the headlight fixed that they forgot last week).  After a while the gentleman came back to tell me that they found a wire had "jiggled" loose and all they had to do was "jiggle" it and it was fixed!  I drove 100 miles round trip for nothing!

When I left the dealership, I went by the Walmart to get some groceries, and also looked at their fabric.  In this part of the world, fabric is hard to find, so the store in Gallup is about the only place.  I was looking for a black background with some bright colored dots or splashes of color.  I was afraid that I was going to have to appliqué a totally different fabric onto my quilt.

Notice the piece of fabric in the center of this quilting...see how it is disintegrating?  Note that it is black background with colored dots on it?  I had a terrible time trying to find a similar fabric!


  1. I don't think the new fabric is a bad match! I'm glad you found something you can work with after all that drive for just a jiggle! ;)

    1. You're so kind, and I will probably use it even though it so much more intense than the 100 year old fabric

  2. That bit of fabric is ideal to replace the other bit.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  3. Close enough! Your repairs look like they're going very well!
