As promised, here are the fabrics that I have so far managed to gather together for my patchwork:

The fabric fourth from the left is the material I made our bedroom curtains from, a cream background with biscuit colour swirls and blue flowers.  I have quite a bit of this fabric left.  The first fabric on the left is the same range of fabrics but the flowers are beige.  I found this at Fabric Warehouse last week in the sale for £5 a metre so I snapped up 3m.  The fabric that is causing me trouble is the blue one, second from the left.  I have very little of this left.  However, the brown fabric is from the same range as the blue but has little gold bits instead of the silver on the blue.  The light blue (fifth from left) was my bargain £1 remnant, and so were the last three but they are quite small pieces.  Hence the need to make my design random :(

I'm liking how they are looking together, but am now having doubts that I am up to the challenge!  I think I might have to make a small project just to gain some confidence ...

Just in case any of you lovely ladies happen across a fabric shop and spy some blue fabric, here is a close up:

It's by a company called "Ashley Wilde Designs" but I don't know the name of the range.  I know it's a long shot, but I'm desperate!

Off to work again this afternoon, but now have Friday off, so hoping to do some crafting then!
