    Try www.quiltknit.com or www.craftconn.com both sites had several pages with orange fabrics and some Halloween.

    Try this link:

    http://www.quiltshops.com/

    Type [color= orange]orange[/color] in the search box. I came up with 10,884 hits from 140 quilt shops. Granted, some items have just a little orange in them. You can quickly look through the thumbnail photos and click on the most promising ones for more information.

    Have fun!

    That's actually one of the websites I was looking at.

    One suggestion is to find an orange as close as possible, and then sew designs on it with black thread :wink:

    OR you can stamp it with black ink too. They make permanent ink for textiles that is heat set with your iron.

    Or you can doodle on the fabric with a black pigma pen :D:D:D
    Hmmm...A lot of the orange fabrics I have been finding are solids (true or marbled). Not talented with stitching. But you did give me an idea with the stamps and doodling. Which actually might be the perfect idea. I could copy some of the patterns used in the movie or the tree ring patterns on my DVD box set. I do have an orange Moda Marble fat quarter I could experiment on.
