    Large Floral Fabric

    I am looking for a fAbric with large tradition Flowers on it. I would like it to have blues and greens in it, along with some other colors. Does anyone have any ideas? Or any websites where I might find this? i want it for the large 12" focal blocks in a quilt I want to make for someone for Xmas. She is an older lady and I know she likes tradional colors and NO wild modern look for the floral fabric. I found "Southern Plantation" by RJR in the dark blue background today but they were out of it in the store and she said it is an older line of fabric. I did a search on the internet and could not find it anywhere. I would appreciate any suggestions anyone has of where I cna look to possibley find a large floral fabric. Thanks..

    I was looking for a large floral fabric that looked hawaiian and found it at equilter.com. I have ordered from them several times and have always been pleased with the fabric and their service.

    Have you tried www.thousandsofbolts.com ? They have easy ways to search for floral, geometric, by color, etc. Good prices, too!

    I know the type of thing you are looking for, but I don't know my manufacturers well enough to help. I did find this all blue one that could be interesting.

    Here's a link to try - http://www.mybluebamboo.com/

    On the main page, click on Catalog. Enter flo in the Catalog Keyword Search box and click Go. The reason for using flo is that it is covers all the words flower, flowers, floral, florals. There were 721 "hits". There were many batiks, some kits, some patterns and sales are clearly marked. Hopefully there is something here that will work, if not, you'll have lots of fun looking.

    That is the design idea I have in mind--but I need about 4 colors in it as I need to put 3 coordinating (but contrasting colors with the focal fabric. I will have to spend some time tomorrow searching some of these other sights that members suggested.
