    Looking for a fabric please.......

    I am looking for a fabric similar to the photo below. It doesn't have to be exact. The main criteria is color: Hunter green background, country red and cream. In a similar scale as shown.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    This reminds me a lot of an original Concord Mills print from the 1970s. Over the years it was reprinted in many colorways and was so popular that it literally saved the mill from financial woes.

    I don't know that your fabric is the same, but is very similar. If it can still be found, you'd find it at the chain fabric stores or walmart, not at your LQS.

    Jan,

    I've looked at Joanne's and Hancock's so far. I have to drag hubby with me so haven't gotten to a LQS yet. I'll try looking at Walmart next time I'm there.

    FYI These are old, old, old kitchen curtains that sorely need replacement. I'm still in love with the colorway so want to replace the old with new and add matching placements.

    Again, I'm not looking for an exact pattern match, just similar colors.

    Prism99,

    Very, very close! As you said, might be a little dark but it is the closest I've seen so far.

    Have you looked on fabric.com?
    They have a big selection of fabrics.
    Do you need a lot of yardage?

    I am not used to shopping fabric online so any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Yardage: Oh, I'm guessing 2-3 yards would be plenty.

    I found this on Etsy. Might be too light?

    I thought I had some, but when I found it, the background was brownish and not green. Sorry, if i had some would send it to you.

    I thank everyone for help in my search!

    Please continue.......... it is appreciated!

    My kitchen/dining room and living room are all the 'open concept' to one another so colors in those rooms are hunter green/burgundy/cream.

    Right now, the search for fabric is for the kitchen.
