    OMG, what a great site, you can create your own fabric and have it printed, still $18 a yard, so if you wanted you could design your camera fabric!!! Why not, its still the same price, i am going consider doing this, wow thank you so much for sharing this site, OMG!!!!!!

I was thinking about ordering the min I would need to make a quilt for him - using it as the focus fabric so would not need to much - maybe get by with a yard - and using blends or something to bring out the colors in the fabric itself.

    I have to say I have enjoyed looking at the fabrics on this website tho - they have so much odder stuff - alice in wonderland, goldilocks, vw bus, etc etc. Fun to look at even if not to buy! I think tho it is nice if you need to find just THE PERFECT fabric for someone special!

    Maybe put the washing instructions on the back of the quilt or on the label? :D:D:D

    so you could put all the pics of quilts you made and have them make a fabric out of your quilts? that would be weird?

    Oh geez. This website is cooler than I expected. Oi! I am just going to have to favorite it. You guys are such a bad influence on me (...according to Hubster...I think you guys are GREAT!)
    Show us the camera quilt when it's done! Oh...and let us know the quality of the printing too! That way, we are more inclined....I mean...we might be tempted to order some!

    I would buy it and make a wall hanging if you're not sure of the washability.

    That site is sooo cool. But, I have read and heard several complaints that the fabrics they send do not hold the colors very well. They seem to fade very quickly. For $18 a yard, that is not acceptable to me.

    This may no longer be an issue, but it is something to think about and research.

    Here are a few, although not just cameras. http://www.fabricparadise.com/cgi-bi...op/gallery.cgi

    Have you considered some type of applique?

    You would think that camera fabric would be easy to find.
