More Fabric info

I went and looked on the Hoffman Challenge site, and saw all their challenge fabrics since 1988, and my butterflies in deep purple/pink/blue wasn't one of them. But I did find this one, which is VERY close, in fact, I'll add it to my hunt, this one would be great as a border print too:


This one is titled 'Orchids' from their 1995 challenge. I must be about 10 years too late on my color preferences - guess I never will be in style!

Their 1994 challenge fabric was titled 'Tiffany Windows' and has lots of butterflies, but way too much yellow/gold to fit in the quilt I'm doing now.

What a beautiful fabric! What a terrific color palette! If you're stuck in the mid to late 90's then I must be too!

Well, even if it wasn't a challenge fabric I'm 100% sure it is a Hoffman. Don't know if that helps or not.

I don't have any of the fabrics you're looking for but I do have a bit over 2-1/2 yds of this

Will it work? If so you can have it. I just want any scraps back cause I do love this piece. BTW, it's a Hoffman that I've had since the mid 90s. :-)

Just noticed when I pull the photo up that I sent the link to it looks blue. In real life there is no blue. That's a deep jade green.

Hi Jane, what great fabric you found. All three are such beautiful fabrics and perfect with the others you've chosen(pizza box). Hope you find one or the others. I'm no help at all. Hugs, Finn

Isn't it funny how colors come and go in popularity? Except for some of us... I once was admiring a quilt, and its maker said, "it's so 80's [or 70's or 90's, whatever she said]." I looked at her like a dummy because I hardly knew what she meant. I just liked her pretty quilt.
