Babs

 Do you have a mac? I think the forum looks different for mac users, Davina had a problem with it. In the meantime, would you like me to post your block images, and you can add your comments afterwards?

Yes have imac. You post the images - seems best option until I get the hang of it. I seek it here ...I seek it there . . . .that elusive tree . . can't find it anywhere . . .

I'm wanting to follow the Block of the Month (I even got hold of last months magazine since I missed it) and I really like the colour scheme that is in it, but I can't seem to find the fabrics anywhere (at least not by the names given in the May magazine).

 Could anyone point me in the right direction, I'm Birmingham based atm (was born a Lancastrian though, to add to the North West contingent), but I don't mind ordering online.

 Thanks in advance, and hopefully soon I'll have my (probably terrible) blocks to show you all,

http://www.cottonpatch.co.uk/acatalog/Tongas_patchwork_fabrics.html

Cottonpatch sells the gorgeous tonga fabrics by timeless treasures, see the link above. If you had a look at their tonga special pack, I imagine that might be a good starting point for £18.50.

I'm working from a similar 5" charm pack and scraps at the moment, so you don't necessarily need to use the exact fabrics in the pattern.

Cotton patch is Birmingham based, so I would try there first.

Let me know if you're stuck

Thanks Katy, I'll try work out how I missed that when I was trawling through their website earlier. Cotton Patch is on my route home from work and I've already spent who knows how much in there!

Will 5" charms be large enough? Or should I grab FQs of the various fabrics I want?

I'd opt for FT's if I were you - though the Java Blenders charm pack could be useful for all the bits of appliqué throughout the quilt. Don't go mad - many blocks can be made from scraps - though the background fabric needs to be consistent. Am enjoying making the second set of blocks (autumn colours - see Gallery) even more satisfying than the first set. Good Luck and Happy Sewing!
