Looking for Maison de Noel


Have you ever had one of those sewing days when you just wanted to throw the entire project across the room right into the trash?  Well, I had one of those days with a Christmas tree skirt that I was working on. I cut an entire section wrong. When I looked at the pattern , I realized that I wouldn't have enough fabric for the project because I had not followed the directions in cutting the section. For this project,   I'm using an older fabric line from Moda, Maison de Noel.  I put the project aside, and out of sight. Every once in a while, I would find myself thinking about this project.  I hate wasting fabric especially fabric that I love.  I thought about using the strips and making a string quilt. I thought about making another Strawberry Pie from my friend Pat at Silver Thimble Quilt Company. The problem is that I don't like to give up on a project.

 This weekend, I took it out again. I assessed the fabric situation. How much did I need? Of which fabrics from the eight in the tree skirt would I need more ? I searched www.quilshops.com, Ebay, and Google. I found 4 of the fabrics that I needed at two online shops. I really needed only about 1/2 yard of each. I still need the holly fabric pictured on this post. I can get it on Ebay, but would cost about $10.00 for half a yard.

 Would you my online friends, please check your stash. Does anyone have half a yard of this holly fabric from the Maison de Noel line by Moda that you would sell, trade, or barter for?  I know someone has to have a piece in their stash.  

Thanks so much for looking!

Hi Becky,
Just got home from the Macon show and read your plea for Maison de Noel. I think I have some of this in my personal stash (?!?!); I know I don't still have any at the shop though.

I'll check the stash closet tomorrow and will let you know.

This Aussie shop has lots of Maison de Noel: http://www.honeysucklecottage.com.au/shop/index.php?cPath=59_11_244_253 I ordered a couple of patterns and they got here (Maryland) in less than a week! The woman who owns the shop is very nice and very helpful.

I have a quilt kit of Maison de Noel in a red bucket with the pattern. Are you still looking. I realize it was several years ago, but thought I'd ask.
