Of course, the first stop was off the list...it was the fabric store (Sistos). I had gone to Capital Quilts Wednesday after work to pick up the fabric for Fiesta and struck out...coming home with the French General Petite Ecole instead...oh, and fabric.com had it on sale for substantially less than I paid for it locally, so I ordered a bunch more ... of course. But, I digress.
We got to the fabric shop and the hubs decides he'll wait in the car. I gave him the 'what, are you crazy? do you have any idea how long this is going to take' look, and went inside. This time I had a new approach. First I laid out the bolts of fabric that I thought were a darn close match to the color chart on Sindy's website. And with only giving them a quick glance, I next set about finding my own version of these fabrics,,more modern prints, less traditional small prints, less solids.
