Default Discontinued Joann fabric

Hello! I am quilting a lovely baby quilt from a few old fabrics I have - and realize that I need a bit more of a particular pattern. Unfortunately it is discontinued. I do not have the item number, so Joann's is unable to help. Hoping you all might have some insight.

If you can post a picture or even give a good description, someone might be able to help.

Edited to start with a greeting! Glad you found us here and hope you stay around a bit even once your current issue is resolved

There is also a site called Missing Fabrics:
http://www.missingfabrics.com/

But they will need a picture too! You just never know, I've been able to connect many people with smaller pieces of wanted older fabrics. Other people seem intent on recreating a particular design in a magazine and want multiple yards of related fabrics. Sometimes that works, someone may have bought everything and never made it, but sometimes there comes a point where you say "it's a blue flower" and find a blue flower (or maybe something else) in a similar color/style and have to move on. If you do post there, please update the site if you get your fabric. You'd be amazed how many times I've had exactly what someone wanted/needed and I sent them a response within a week of posting and I never heard back and the ads were never taken down.

Posting pictures here can be hard for some set ups, we have some pretty good stuff stickied to the top of the Help forum

I had to make it a very poor quality for the upload. Hope you can see it! Thanks.

Great picture and good job getting it posted. I can tell you I have many dots from Joann, but this is not one I have.

It might help to put a coin on the dots for scale, I think those are more dime sized than quarter?

edit: I use this website to reduce the file size of my digital camera pictures, it gives pretty good clarity just using the defaults

Yes, a little bit smaller than a dime. Thanks again.

That doesn’t look like regular cotton fabric is it?

I was going to say the same thing, it actually looks like linen, or maybe even a home dec fabric?

It is quilting fabric. I think it was from a nursery line.
