    I have to say, I'm absolutely obsessed with Toile fabric, but almost every fabric store I go to seems to have the same two patterns...

    Waverly "Country Life" or sometimes called Jamestown in black, red, or green, and then there's Waverly La Belle. Usually I find this at Joanne's in the back where the home decor stuff is. It's nice. I like it.

    But I know there are many many types of Romantic/Victorian looking Toile patterns out there, and my usual fabric stores online (fabric.com and fabricdepot) never seem to have what I want.

    Are there any other Toile lovers out there like me who know of a nice, reliable site online, or maybe even some random stores that tend to carry a nice selection of Toile fabrics?

    try these:
    Craft Connection (use the search box - enter toile, they don't let you link to inside pages) http://www.craftconn.com/Main.asp several are on sale
    Hancock's of Paducah http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item...-Fabric--m-715
    Colonial Crafts (limited selection, but they have flannel toile) http://www.colonialcrafts.com/manufa...l_Toile/2120/2
    Fabric.com has four collections listed http://www.fabric.com/home-decor-fab...8-_-3017373032
    Need more? The selection is limited...I see what you mean about that.

    Ooh well those are some new selections I haven't seen before, to be sure! I'll have to bookmark these for some shopping sprees at a later date :mrgreen:

    However I guess I should have been more specific. I'm kinda looking for toile scenes which look Victorian and with people in them, instead of just floral or oriental toile.


    See! It's hard to track down toile fabric. Wah.

    You're seriously like a little quilting detective, you know that? Hahahaha.

    The Toile from interiormall.com called "French Country Toile" is what I have oodles of, mostly because it's readily available everywhere, and I just really like the pattern, but I've been looking for something similar to it...

    The link to jandofabrics.com is pretty much what I was looking for. I know the fabric will be a bit more like canvas than soft cotton, but hey, I can work with that! Seriously, thank you, that website has some awesome selections.
