Hi, I got a note from a friend Ellen, some of you may remember her from the BHG forum years ago and she was on here in the early days as Butterfly before being mum to 3 boys ate her life! Anyways, wondering if anyone can help? Fingers crossed

I wanted to start the US States quilt I bought fabric for years and years ago. So last night I had a blast sorting through all the birds and flowers and putting them in piles with the state names pinned to them in nice little bundles. Guess what?! I don't have the floral fabric for West Virginia! So I bought all of this 5 years ago (almost 6 years) and I got most of it piecemeal from different sites because I got hooked on the idea late in the game. I've searched online for the fabric - their state flower is the rhododendron, and have come up empty. Anyway, I know you are far more connected in quilting circles than I am. Do you know anyone who did the state series years ago? Any chance I can buy a 6" square of West Virginia rhododendron from them?!

GC, I'm not familiar with the fabric you're talking about. If it's something particular to West Virginia I know of two fabric shops on the WV/Ohio border that might be able to help. I'm going down that way Saturday and could check if you have any more information for me.

It was a fabric line about 5yrs ago, trying to find out what compay made it. They did a line featuring the 50 states, each state had two fabrics, one with featuring their state bird and the other featuring their state flower. Its the WV rhododendron flower fabric Ellen needs a piece of - thanks for your willingness to help out Hug
