It seems that something has happened and we have missing/extra blocks from various colorways. I'm trying to figure out what happened.

Here is the info from the other thread thus far:

Pale blue garnett is the intended "duplication" since the set had 55.

Magenta teal vs rich red: Leonard looked alike to me, too. Not sure if this was a manufacturer snafu.

FordCowgirl:
Missing: Garrett - Magenta Teal, Dorothy - Natural Brown
Extras: Catherine - Magenta Teal, Dance - Natural Brown

jkpwynn says:
DOROTHY - missing Natural Brown
CATHERINE - extra Magenta Teal
DANCE - extra Natural Brown
GARNET - missing Magenta Teal

You'll notice these lists are the same.

I'm on my phone at the moment. Doing sleuthing is hard. But I will do my best.

When I sorted, I made spots and kept the stacks intact. There doesn't seem to be a correlation between who sent what and what's missing/duplicated.

My fabric is all in my parent's house. I will be back there tomorrow so I can look at my own fabric then.

Just checked mine and it's like the others:

Extras: Catherine - Magenta Teal, Dance - Natural Brown
Missing: Garnet - Magenta Teal, Dorothy - Natural Brown

Leonard - Magenta Teal and Rich Red look the same

Maybe one of the fabric stores mislabeled and the purchaser thought they were getting the Garnet and Dorothy prints, but it was actually the Catherine and Dance ones. Could also be the case for the Leonard prints.

Thanks for all your hard work! The prints are so similar!

bruinbr, I both hope and don't hope that this is the case! I'll bring my laptop to my parent's tomorrow so I can see better what's going on with my own stack.

I received mine today! :)

I have the same 2 missing and the same 2 extras as listed above. And, I completely agree that the Leonards were also duplicated (they look identical to me).

It's hard to tell which one it is though. I believe I have extra of the Leonard in the Magenta Teal colorway, because it is pretty close to the red used in the Dorothy in Magenta Teal; and I believe I do not have the Leonard in the Rich Red Blue colorway, because I think it should be more of an orange-red like the red used in Dance. At least that's the way it looks in the pictures here: www.liberty.co.uk/pws/client/pdf/LifestyleBloomsburycolle...

Of course, it would be easier to tell if we could see the fabrics in person. Neither of my LQS's sell Liberty. :(

Let me know what you all think.

Thanks again kejreeves for doing this! They are so lovely!!

I have the same dupes. I added a photo of them for clarity.

Incidentally, the two Leonards are very slightly different. It's a small enough difference that it could be dye lot, not colorway. Bah!

Based on the list,
Missing: Garrett - Magenta Teal, Dorothy - Natural Brown
Extras: Catherine - Magenta Teal, Dance - Natural Brown

I'm guessing the Magenta Teal Garnett that Colbet9980 ordered became Catherine. And the Natural Brown Dorothy for locodowo became Dance.

I'm doing some checking on how this mix-up could have occurred.

I received mine last week and have the same duplicates.

To me it seems like error on the manufacturer or shops fault. By the looks of it, the Leonard colors are almost identical anyway so I don't think there was a mistake there. I'm not worried about it and will use mine as is!

I agree. I'm fine with what was sent!

Works for me - for those interested in completing the collection, you can get 1/4 yds of both missing prints here:

Garnett Magenta Teal:
www.sewmamasew.com/store/all-fabric/garnett-magenta-teal-...

and

Dorothy Natural Brown, same site:
www.sewmamasew.com/store/all-fabric/dorothy-natural-brown...

According to inventory they have 9-11ish yards of each, so shouldn't sell out super-fast, hopefully. :)

I'll have to look into that. I wanted a full collection as 1 set of bricks was supposed to be a gift.

Thanks for sharing that! I realized that even if the company that messed up sent the yardage, sending it out to everyone would cost more than the fabric, and paypal fees would eat or double people's cost. :-/

I just checked mine. I am missing the same and also have the same duplicates. I'm fine with keeping what I have received as well. Just one of those snafus. What I received is beautiful and I already have a couple of patterns in mind. Thanks.

I don't have time to sort out the stacks so in final - were just missing these and have duplicates of these?

Missing: Garrett - Magenta Teal, Dorothy - Natural Brown
Extras: Catherine - Magenta Teal, Dance - Natural Brown

I just want to know which two I'm missing so I can just purchase them separately. Thanks!
jkpwynn 6 years ago
Yep.

I'm not sure where Colbet9980 bought hers - I will be in touch with the vendor who provided the fabric for locodowo.

I haven't gone through mine but it looks pretty consistent.

Did we ever figure anything else out about this?

No, we haven't. I got totally sidetracked by holidays and toddlers and didn't do anything further to get in touch with anyone. I apologize for that!

Also, I still have the batch of extra bricks that *someone* must be missing - I, of course, will hang on to them because they are rightfully theirs, but I'm surprised that it hasn't been noticed yet!

I can't find the Dorothy in natural brown - does anybody have any they would be willing to swap? I need 2 - 5" x 10" blocks :)
