    I'm looking for some tote bag fabric, for a nurse. She's a pediatric nurse, so she's hoping for something for the kids. Band aids, stethoscopes, animals, etc.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have seen several "Nurse" type fabrics on the racks at WalMart lately.. some 45" and some even 60. you might try there if there is one near you with fabric.
    I think I remember one with bandaids, crutches and such.

    Maybe you can find some old scrubs at a second-hand store too.

    found these... what do you have to trade?

    Got a yard of each I could work with you on :)

    I really am still looking for tons of "I spy" type fabrics -- food types especially.

    pretty sure it's cotton

    Loralie has produced several nurse fabrics, but some of them are hard to find now. You can search for them and see if any are available. Here is a picture of the squares from the "Nifty Nurses" panel. I made a quilt from them for my DDIL when she became an R.N. last year.

    I LOVE the first one. Even if my customer doesn't, I do. I'm not even a nurse. What kind of I spy stuff are you looking for? I've never done one, so I don't know what things to look for. Let me know, I'll look through my stuff!!!

    I spy is based on the kid's game of "I spy a _____ ____" and the other person has to try and guess what it is they see. With the quilts all the items are in the quilt to try and find. I have a lot of variety but very little of "food/candy" type items. I'm planning on using 5 - 6 " squares for at least 2 of these quilts so that's why I need a huge variety of items. I'll pm and we can coordinate if you wish.
