    How pretty! I've seen some similar fabrics when I've googled "retro fabrics" under the images tab, but don't know if I've seen this exact one.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very nice trailer. I don't know a thing about that curtain material.

    If you go to etsy and type in yellow and grey geometric retro you will see several items made from that material. Maybe you can email one of the sellers and they can tell you what line it is from.

    Here are the sellers that have made things with it (mentioned above)
    http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/12143...black-and-gray
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/11508076...coaster-set-of
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/12165742...rint-geometric

    The one listing says it's poly/cotton so it may not be a quilting brand. The other two say it's cotton but I'd be more willing to believe that the poly/cotton claim is more accurate. It's easy to assume something is cotton.

    I'm wondering if it isn't a vintage barkcloth fabric, which often had these retro geometric prints. That would seem appropriate for this trailer. I love the feel of barkcloth; it's cotton and easily washable.
    Try this for some ideas of what I mean: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw...=940&_from=R40

    Couldn't get it to zoom close enough to really see, but I'm guessing it is made from Bark cloth, too.
