    Does anyone know of a good source for M & M fabric? We have been commissioned to make a quilt for an expectant mom, and the nursery will be M & M's. I checked ebay, and what I found was either too expensive or we didn't like it. I have sent Nan (Favorite Fabrics) a message.

    If anyone has any in their stash that they'd be willing to part with, please send me a PM.

    Thanks,

    Darren

    I have some but it is expensive (I paid a lot for it myself) - It would be my recommendation to mix 'n match it with other fabrics to make it go further. You might want to ask her if she has another theme she would like to do instead ;)

    Have you considered applique? You could cut out the M & Ms from bright colored fabric. If you have access to a copier or scanner, I don't think it would be too hard to make a graphic of the logo, and that could be appliqued, as well. It might even be fun to put arms and legs on them like they have in the commercials. Just a thought.

    I recently saw some a a Hancocks store. If you have one close...I would check there. The price didn't seem too high and seemed to be decent quality. Good luck...and wish that I could help out.
