    OK, this is really odd. Yesterday, I was up at the quilt shop by the campground my parents like to go to. I was looking at fabric which I usually don't buy there because of cost. Anyway, they had fabric that had dominoes printed on it. I believe it may have been Moda fabric. The name of the shop is Sew Elegant quilt shop in Port Huron, Michigan. I don't know if they do mail order or not but I know they have a website.

    I don't have any in my stash. I did a quick look at ebay. someone has 12 yards of fleece for $69. I also saw a couple cotton pieces.
    I also did a google search. I wasn't able to find any.
    I wish you the best of luck and I'm sure one of these wonderful people will be able to help you better.

    Might be kinda fun to make dominoes with black and white fabric. There's tons of "dotty" fabric, and you could use white/cream background and applique on black dots for the numbers.

    www.hartsfabric.com has a 5x5 domino fabric, if that is any help. I Googled: Novelty cotton fabric, Dominos, and that one came up. Hope this helps

    Esqmommy has a great idea! I think it would be fun to make dominoes with black & white fabrics, too.

    love the idea of making it with black and white fabric. maybe squares of dominoes, white fabric with black dots, and strip them in black! and then maybe a red checkered boarder, like on a table cloth!
