    Hello everybody,
    Im looking for fabric that represents the letters I, W, and U. Does anybody know of some good sites where you can order fabric? I've been looking but Im not having alot of luck finding much that represents those letters. Or if anybody has a yard of fabric that represents those letters for a childs I Spy quilt please let me know if you would be interested in selling it.

    I've bought novelty prints from quiltknit.com. They have a pretty big selection. bugfabric.com also has a good selection that includes reptiles and other things besides just bugs.

    I did see some whale fabric at walmart. I will have go back to get that. I was hoping for something a little more original. But, I think whale is going to have to work.

    Does it have to be animals?

    What about iguana for I

    Umbrella cockatoo for U...ok I know that's cheating, so sue me, lol!

    and Uakkari is some kind of monkey,but I'm not sure I spelled it right.


    If it doesn't have to be animals, I could be ice cream, and U umbrella, those should be relatively easy to find...

    No it doesn't have to be animals. The problem is finding the fabric.

    Thanks for all of the ideas. I bought the whale fabric tonight so if I don't find something tomorrow at a store I will order something.

    How about umbrella for "u" and ice cream cones for "i" in the line of fabric prints?




    ice skates
    Indian corn
    iron
    Irish shamrock
    ivy


    umpire
    umbrella
    underclothes
    unicorn


    Hope you find something you like.

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan
