    Hunting for bright yellow flannel solids

    My DD wants to make a rag quilt for her cousin's soon-to-be-here baby boy. They both have kids from previous marriages, so they have a total of 6 girls. This will be their first baby together, and Dad is can't wait for Zeb to arrive. The father is a geek, and so is my daughter, so she immediately picked Marvel and DC comics flannel material to put The Avengers (No Spiderman for her!) on one side and Batman/ Superman on the other. I've been looking all over the internet for a bright yellow to go with the "S" in Superman's symbol, Thor's blonde hair, etc. Does anyone know of a place to get the bright yellow solid flannel? I found a seller on e-bay, but all they sell are pre-cut squares. I would like to purchase 5 yards for this and future projects. Joann's has a bright solid yellow but with all the bad reviews on their website for the cozy flannel I'm leery of purchasing, and they didn't have any in the store yesterday to look at. Thank you!

    Fabric depot has two. One is Moda Marble which might be a better choice because if the yellow doesn't match exactly it won't really matter because it is a marble which reads solid anyway. AND it just happens to be on sale.

    If this is too goldy, they have one called Lemon

    Here is a link to all their flannels:

    There is a polka dot one you may wish to consider as it has other bright primary colors that match your Avengers flannel.

    Have fun shopping!

    Edited to add, Connecting Threads has a yellow on yellow polkadot but I have never used their flannel so can't attest to the quality. You absolutely can not go wrong with Moda. I have also had great luck with AE Nathan and Kaufman flannels too.

    Connecting threads flannel is very nice, hardly any shrinkage or pilling

    Joann's has a large selection of cotton flannels, I buy them there. You can view them on their website. They have yellows.

    I once found really cheap (both inexpensive--$1/yd and cheap as in thin/flimsy) flannel. I prewashed it which tightened it up beautifully while also preshrinking it. It worked as beautifully as full-priced/quilt-shop quality flannel.

    Saw bright yellow flannel on several sights already mentioned - Joann's, Fabric.com, Fabric Depot, Connecting Threads - and I think I saw some flannel on sale at Nancysnotions.com, too.

    Thank you for the suggestions. I popped back into Joann's on Mother's Day while we were in Tulsa for a girl's day dinner and a movie, but no yellow on the shelves. I will take a look at all the recommended sites. Off to shop!
