    Helllp! Looking for a fabric!

    I'm making my grandsons a quilt including novelty prints that represent things they like/do. I've had a blast finding all the different fabrics. There's one I'm still looking for however. Anything to do with swimming. Swimming is after all a sport. You'd think there would be something out there. I've done every search that I can imagine. 'swimming print for quilting', cotton print for swimming, swim print for quilts and the list goes on and on.

    If anyone can help, I'd be most appreciative. TIA

    Do you have a picture of them swimming? Print on fabric to add a personal touch.

    I have done "searches" for specific fabrics, only to find them after I settled for something else!! Kind of like finding something in the last place you look! LOL

    I had found the one on Ebay. I never thought of pictures of them swimming. What a great idea! If you should run into any more, pls don't hesitate to post them. Thank you all so much.

    Fabric.com had a recent line of olympics themed fabric, including this one of swimmers.
