    Looking for Novelty Prints of anything in England France and Spain

    I want to make a small quilt (maybe a mini or lap size) for a dear friend who (I can't believe how time flies) traveled with me to Europe. This was the first time either of us had flown and went away without our husbands. We were at he time, 40 somethings and going to college!!!! This was a life-changing trip and now we live thousands of miles apart and my friend has had some serious health problems. I want to make her something that will remind her of our fantastic two weeks in 1989. We traveled to the three countries visiting 2 cities in each.
    I'm thinking "Big Ben and bridges", "Eiffel Tower and cafes", " Missions and Bulls" and probably "bottles of wine". If anyone can direct me to a source I would be most grateful.

    That is so cool you and your friend not only went to college in your 40's but Europe to. I also went to college when I was in my 40's, I hope Europe comes soon I'm already in my 50's. Try thousand bolts of fabric Grace
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    Look at quiltshops.com. Type in Eiffel Tower for search, then choose thumbnail and it will show the fabric and the shop. Good luck!

    I was just looking on Ebay and if you type in "London images on fabric" there are quite a few there, a lovely Cath Kidson fabric, I' also typed in Paris image on fabric and lots of those too. What a lovely idea, good luck.
