    I am planning on making a quilt for my SIL, who loves to fish for walleye. I am looking for fish panels, especially if they feature walleye. Does anyone know where I could find some. I have checked a couple of sites, but no luck. Thanks for any info you can give me.

    I have some some I think are Large mouth Bass. I will have some leftover after I do my son's quilt. I haven't seen any Walleye, but I'm not sure I'd recognize one if I did see it.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-150584-1.htm Heather has some here for much less than I paid for mine.

    I really like the fish panel on Favorite Fabrics' site.

    I wouldn't know a walleye if I saw one... but here's a link to all the fish fabric we carry:

    Love the fabric, Favorite Fabric. If it wasn't so expensive to get it across the border, I'd do all my shopping on line.

    Tartan, like pretty much everything in life, you have to "do the math" to figure out if it's worth having the fabric shipped across the border. We charge $12.50 per envelope - and the envelope holds 8 yards of fabric. Then Canada Post charges the $5 cross-border administrative fee when they deliver the package, which brings the cost of that envelope to $17.50. They also charge HST/PST/GST on the value of the contents, but you'd be paying that tax even if you were buying the fabric locally.

    Anyway... dividing the $17.50 by the the 8 yards of fabric, that works out to $2.19 per yard. If you add that to the price per yard of the fabric, then compare it to what you would be paying locally, you will have your answer as to whether it's worth it to order online.

    I think the key is to fill up that envelope. Not all US shops will fill it to the max, but we do, and it works. :-)

    I understand that some branches of the US Post Office have given shippers a lot of grief about the "fat envelopes", but we don't have any problem getting our envelopes shipped. :thumbup:
