    Leopards

    I need about a yard of fabric with pictures of leopards on it for a tote. Not the black one that is really a panther, but the yellow spotted one. Have looked all over and have only found one that even came at all close (colors all wrong and very expensive). If anyone knows where I can buy it please let me know. My friends last name is Leopard and that is why I need it. Plan on using a jungle print to go with it. Have already checked the top name on line sites, but have probably missed a bunch of them. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Why not just a leopard print? That might be easier to find. Did you try fabric search? I find a lot of harder to find fabric there. Good luck.

    Could you possibly find a picture and get it printed onto fabric and use as a panel piece?

    Just wondered if you have checked ebay for cushion panels for leopards, might be an idea.

    But may not work. You would have to fussy cut the leopards

    Here is a panel but may be too big

    I have a small piece that is quite a few years old that has flowers with the leopards. The only info on the selvedge is Fashion Avenue by Fabri-Quilt,Inc. I know I purchased it at a fire sale from a liquidation place up here in BC. I've searched and can't see anything similar under that name though.

    I have three pillow panels with a coordinating dark green leaf print.

    Send a PM if interested.

    Sorry - I haven't figured out how to do pictures yet.


    I didn't have enough patience to look at more than 20 page on e-bay to find a match.

    I just love these panels. Must look into getting them myself, postage to the UK permitting!

    To all of you who had suggestions ...thank you so much. I was contacted by someone who is commercial and had the exact thing I needed. It will be a bit different in style when I make the bag, but it will be beautiful. I will post a picture of the tote when i am finished. Will be a bit, like most quilters I am a bit behind. smile. Again thank you. I knew if it was to be found, it would be here. Happy Quilting. Elaine
