    This is NOT a request for anyone to send me fabric...

    I want to do a One Block Wonder quilt in a Christmas theme fabric.. My Christmas decorations are mostly in blues and silvers. So I have in my head a large design fabric with blues and silvers (shiny threads, spots, swirls a bonus) of perhaps Christmas ornaments or such... Should have a 12" or so repeat...

    Hoping to take advantage of the large number of fabricholics that may have seen just the perfect fabric.

    THANKS!

    Terry

    connecting threads has a blue/white christmas line out but i don't know it the design elements will be large enough for you.

    either way check it out

    Thank you, Klue...

    Their recent email blast with that fabric line is what prompted me to ask here... The design is much smaller than what I have pictured in my head.....

    Anyone know how hard it is to design your own fabrics?

    I would imagine not hard at all, but extremely expensive! You should probably look into florals that have movement, as those work best for that style. You can find the blues/silvers...If I see anything I'll post it!

    the designing part is easy, its the printing or dying thats hard.

    Great selections!!! More than I have found in a month of looking! Thanks

    Blue Bamboo is in Maple Grove, MN... Not to far of a jaunt.. Perhaps have to visit in person to see the size of the patterns and the repeats.. Don't know how to find that info on the page..

    These two look possible: Wintergraphix Large Circles Scene in Blue and Enchanted Winter: Pine Cones on Navy Blue.

    More?

    Thanks!
