If you can believe this, as a quilter, I need fabric. It seems as though I am having difficulty locating fabric in a blue pastel color. I can find some pinks, yellows, a few greens, but haven't had any luck with the blue. I went to Hancock's, JoAnns, and have looked on Clotilde. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks. :?:

Are you looking for a solid or a print? I have some cloud material I bought at Suzy's in Garland.

In Joann's, did you just look in the quilting fabric area? Or did you check out the baby fabric? I found a lot of pale blue in the baby section.......

Thanks for the tip. I must have been having a senior moment that day.

Thanks for the picture. I was looking for a paler blue (preferably a much softer blue).
