I'm hoping someone has a half yard of this fabric...circa 2000...for my Y2K repro.

I'm looking for about half a yard of this Y2K fabric.  Green, perhaps a tad greener than the photo.  This was part of the border on my original Y2KQuilt and I'd like to have the same on the repro.

I do not know the maker. This 3-inch square is the only piece I have in my stash.

Anyone have any? I'd be happy to pay for the fabric and shipping.

Paducah Quilt Show

Who's been to the Paducah Quilt Show?  Any special advice or pointers that one should know before going?   I just moved to within a few hours' drive and thought I might give it a try.  NancyHG

Mark Lipinski Has Had a Kidney Transplant Today

This is fourth hand information but people on another quilting forum have relayed the news that quilting guru Mark Lipinski (who has been seriously ill with kidney disease for quite some time) has received a kidney transplant today from  his friend and neighbor, a woman he has named "Kidney Mary". The report is that surgery went well for both donor and recipient.

This information is posted on his Facebook page if you are a Facebook user.  I am not a FB person so that's why I'm saying it is "fourth hand".  :-)

Hello everyone. It has been a long time since I last posted, but I still come back and read the postings every few days. Since my last post, I finally did get the second memorial quilt sandwiched and in the hoop. It is ready to be quilted. Members of this board were so kind to us when our son was killed in Iraq 2005. We received enough blocks to make two large quilts. The first one was finished in 2006 and I think it is time to finish the second one. Tomorrow (the 27th) would have been his 33rd birthday.

In the years though that have passed, I have come to realize that my driving desire to create quilts has waned considerably. That is why I am posting now. I have gone through my belongings and pulled out lots of templates, books, etc. that I have up for sale. If any of you are interested, you can view the items at this Ravelry link, OK, for whatever reason I can't get the link to appear. If you wish to view the items you can email me at
lightningsj--at--att--dot--net I really miss the For Sale section that use to be on the old WWQP. Thank you all for your help and advice in past years and the friendships that I have made. You have all been a big part of my life and please know that we appreciate each block that was made for us and the prayers that were said on our behalf.
