    I bought a Thomas Kincade lighthouse panel to make a quilt for my sister. She loves blue and the ocean colors.
    I am trying to find blues/ bluegreen like the ocean to go with this panel.
    It's hard for me to find anything that would be fitting of ocean or blue, blue greens.
    Does anyone know of any place online that I can shop at I am looking for reasonable prices as well

    Connecting Threads is reasonably priced. I would think they would have a some batiks that would be perfect. Hancock Fabrics batiks were half price yesterday. They still may be.

    I would agree with the suggestion to go with batiks... and be sure to choose smoky colors of those. The Thomas Kinkade line had subtle, grayed colors, so if in doubt, chose the duller shades.

    I was just at http://stitchinpost.com and saw some wonder landscape types there. Be patient though, they have lots of fabrics.
