    Tylon is the same fabric used on Ty Beanie Babies. I felt this fabric on the bolt, today, at a local quilt store but they only had them in baby colors. Does anyone know where I can buy Tylon or something that is similar to it? I think it's a luxurious fabric and it is certainly beautiful used as a backing on quilts. I've googled it, and have not managed to come up with any good results.

    Thanks for your help!

    OK.....I'm really bad at posting something, and then finding out the answer almost immediately soon after.

    I found the fabric. It's called "Minky Chenille". It is gorgeous when it's quilted. The backing looks like it's embossed. Gorgeous! Anyways, I managed to find an online source for the 'velvet' minky chenille that I was looking for.

    Anyway, sorry to bother your ladies! Have a good night!

    LOL! I felt it yesterday and I think you don't need batting between the chenille and your quilt top. It's thick enough and certainly will be warm enough.

    Here is the site:

    Minkee: My shop which is now gone charged $16/yd. for Minkee. I ck'd shipping cost from the website & 2 yds. would cost me over $40. Won't pay that.

    Shipping to my address is $9... two yards. Total less than $40. I guess it just depends on your address.
