    Searching for a light yellow w/larger white polka dots

    I am searching for a line of fabric that has a lighter yellow with large-ish white polka dots, something like this: http://gloriaglitter.com/?attachment_id=8

    I'd like to coordinate this with a peach color that has a small yellow flower print.

    My problem has been all the polka dot fabrics I've looked at have very small polka dots. I'm looking for a polka dot that is around 3/8".

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Looking online it's hard for me to figure the scale of the dot fabric.

    I have a scrap of that from a quilt I made. Seems like I found it at Hancocks but am not sure if they would still have it. You could call QS for them to tell you size of the dot.

    Search white dots on yellow using...
    http://www.quiltshops.com/index.html
    http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/
    http://www.fabshophop.com/fabsearch.asp

    R. Kaufman's Pimatex Basics has one, but the dots are only "

    and there's another with 3/4" dots
    http://www.thefabricshoppe.com/cgi-b...id=1#rlyl_5412
    both are only 5.99 per yard
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    Thanks, gr, for the suggestions. I've never bought fabric on line so this is a first for me.

    this one has huge dots

    this one is the right size but some of the dots are apples

    Oh, QuiltnNan, that first one is SO cute! Thanks for the link as I'm stumbling around here searching for what I want. The story: I went to a quilt show this past weekend, saw a quilt sample, fell in love with it, bought the pattern but couldn't afford the 'kit'. I'm kind of leary of kits anyway. So, now I'm sitting here trying to re-create what I saw but couldn't afford.

    This will be a small quilt for our 3 yr. old grand daughter who absolutely LOVES the color yellow and the sample I saw was basically shades/prints/dots of yellows, peach and greens.

    I tend towards earthy colors in my quilts so something this bright is way out of my element.
