    Need orange, tabby cat fabric

    I have a request to make a stuffed, orange tabby cat, and can't find any fabric that looks like a tabby cat. I just want a cotton fabric, no fur or fake skin etc. Any ideas where I might find it? I think I have seen it somewhere, but I have looked at the fabric and quilt shops and haven't seen any. Thanks.

    At first glance, I thought you were looking for an orange tabby cat. I got all excited as I just can't find homes for all ours. Oh well.

    I was at Jo-Anns today and the had lots of material that were orange with different designs it them.

    I found a great tiger stripe fabric on Fabric.com. It would make a great cat! I bought 4 yards of it for the back of a Missouri Tigers quilt I'm making for my nephew.

    I'd take a look at batiks, Stonehenge, Marblehead and even some calicos.
    And here's my offer of inspiration which I made for my Pony Club quilt ...
