    Still searching for this fabric

    It is a Windham fabric from the Colonies collection...chocolate and salmon # 24311-2 I need the chocolate background with the salmon design. Several of you found the opposite colorway, but I already have that. If I had read the instructions all the way thru before cutting, I would not be in this pickle. Called several fabric companies, no one seems to have it or is willing to search for it. Hope someone can help. I can get by with the equiv. of 6 1"x8" pieces, but would certainly like extra!

    Have you tried the two fabric search engines? http://www.fabshophop.com/fabsearch.asp http://www.quiltshops.com/

    Plus a better picture might help. I can't really tell what the fabric looks like in that picture.

    I have tried both sites. The fabric doesn't photograph well, have tried everything...the above picture is really pretty close, colors are not that true!

    According to their website, this is an "archived" fabric. Maybe you can contact the company to get help in locating it somehow? Click on thier "contact" link and see if they can help, assuming you haven't already done so. http://www.windhamfabrics.net/cgi-bin/fabricshop/gallery.cgi?Category=194

    This picture from the link above gives a totally different look of the fabric, maybe someone might recognize it in their stash from it. http://www.windhamfabrics.net/cgi-bi...194&Page=1&v=1

    Did you do the google search that I suggested in your original thread?

    I used Windham Colonies Salmon & Chocolate and several came up with your # you gave us.
    And that are selling it and others in the line.
    Including, I recall an Amazon listing where you could buy it there, or could link thru to the store that was selling it.

    It will take time but you can probably find it by going to every online quilt shop that sells Windham fabrics. Google Windham Colonies fabric for sale.
    Got fabric?
