I am wanting more of this fabric but don't know what it is. It comes in other
colour ways to this and may be a Repro All I can see on the selvedge is the end
of a word " on" and fabrics . It is NOT a Cranston fabric, it's too fine for
that. Does anyone recognize it ? I think it might be some few years old now as it was used in Maggie Walkers quilt Summers End and that was a fair while back. Hoping someone might have it in their stash and can read the selvedge . Had no luck in finding out anywhere else

Its a a long time back Golo . Think it would be a big ask with all the quilts that she made . It was only one of many pieces that she used in piecing background blocks to applique over . I can't even remember where I bought the piece I have .

Henny hope you can get it figured out. That's a nice piece. I am sure had I seen this in a store would have picked some up. Sorry I can't help tho.

Thanks sewn3m . It has been suggested that the " on" on the end name could be Wilmington. I have looked at the Wilmington site and at that many fabrics I went nearly blind ! LOL I think the problem is it is too old to be on any site now. I just thought someone may have it in their stash and be able to give me a range name . Something to look for. It isn't really that important. I just would like some more Very Happy

Try this site by putting in her name...it just might bring up fabrics that she used?? I have used this site many times looking for a fabric. There are stores here that have older fabrics and sometimes I get lucky. Of course it would be better if you could actually put in the manufacturer or the name of the fabric line.

HP I believe the fabric is made by timeless treasure Maggie Walker designs fabric for them.
I'm currently working on her Roseville quilt but it is slow going!

Ooh lovely Linda. A friend has been working on Roseville for some years . So much work , but such a beautiful quilt. I kid you not I have looked at around 3,000 TT fabrics , with no luck. I am going to give up. I am sure that it is just too old now to be anywhere but like my green piece in someones stash from " back then "
