    Smile Black floral fabric, anyone know where I can buy this?

    I need 3 or 4 yards of this fabric... it's from 2007 Marcus Brothers "Home for the Holidays" collection.

    It's a huge floral pattern, with a black background. The large red flower is about 5 inches across.

    It's shown used in the border of this quilt:

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    Sorry. I did my best Googling and found it pictured in several places, but was always sold out or unavailable. I did find the same print with a dark green background, maybe it would work for your purposes? It's listed as "Home for the Holidays II".

    WOW, that's not it but it'll do just fine! I just got off the phone with the quilt shop, this fabric is from Home for the Holidays II, and it will work beautifully!!!

    How do I crawl through the forum and enter through your computer to give you a bear hug? You made my whole year.

    Happy to help. I've spent a lot of time this year trying to find older fabrics that I loved & were almost gone.

    Ask a question and you will get an answer - ask for a resource and it will be found - this is a great board!

    I just had to search for a discontinued fabric myself and found it at Fabric Shack. I started by doing a google search using the words discontinued fabrics. Good Luck

    I am always impressed at how many people try to help when a question is posed. Sometimes it is just to commiserate but always so positive. Great bunch. I have found, that most quilters are great people.

    The fabric arrived yesterday and I'm so thrilled~! My mom will love this quilt. I've found every fabric I needed for this 2007 BOM. Thank you for the help! I decided to embroider angels for this quilt. I'll add a photo when I get the blocks sewn up.
