    Looking for fabric

    This board is amazing and I am hoping that someone can lead me to the right place to find Beatrix Potter/Peter Rabbit fabric for making a crib quilt for a friend. She wants it in the pale/mint green colors. Most of what I have located is out of stock and no idea when it will be back in stock or it is over priced in my opinion. PLease help if you can. Thank you, hugs, Drue

    I would try a Google search and buy online. I needed some Wilmington fabric to finish 4 identical Christmas throws I designed. No one had what I needed left in the LQS. But I found an online shop that had it. I was worried when I ordered because it needed to match but it was just what I needed.

    Try the fabric search engines. According to the manufacturer, most of the large Peter Rabbit panels are not being reprinted in case that is what you're looking for, but there are smaller 'book' panels available.

    Try Fabric.com or the bug fabric (you'll have to google, can't remember the name of the shop). Good luck!

    Just went to the www.fabshophop.com and looked at what they had. Didn't see but a piece or two that was Peter Rabbit. Most of them are Jerimiah Puddle Duck and others. I will keep searching and see what I can find.
    Thanks so much for you help.

    I have bought some before and I want to say it was at a Hancocks. You might check there and Joanns if you haven't or if there are some nearby. Another good spot to look is a Mill End Textiles if you have in your area.

    Tried all three of your suggestions and didn't see any of the Potter prints with Peter Rabbit....this is what I keep running up against.
    Thanks for your suggestions

    I have checked at Hancocks and JoAnns and Hobby Lobby and nothing available. We don't have a Mill End Textiles in our area. I have been on line for days searching this out....never thought something so popular would be so unavailable.... I have checked Keepsake Quilting, Hancocks of Pad. and many other quilt shops and fabric places....still open for suggestions and whatever else you can think of. I thought it was available not too many months ago and could have sworn I'd seen it, but maybe just wishful thinking. The prices in the overseas shops are not too bad...a little more than US prices, but it's the shipping!

    Any way thanks a bunch to all...I'm still looking!

    I have 6 FQ's and 2 yd of Peter Rabbit fabrics. It is mostly pinks. One FQ has a colored picture of the bunny which includes a bit of green. Let me know if you'd like pictures. Selvage says "Peter Rabbit Frederick Warne and Co 2005".

    maybe have some w

    Hi, I may have some Peter Rabbit fabric in Temple, TX, where we moved from. I still have a sewing room there in addition to the one I have in Jamaica Beach. I called my daughter to look in there, because I had a bolt of Peter Rabbit. I made a baby quilt a few years ago, and I am sure there was some left. She wasn't at home, but she will be and will check. I will send you a private msg.

    I think I may have some that are about 3" by 4" squares. I'll have to dig around to find them.

    Would love to see the pics of what you have. Obviously the UK, Canada and Australia have this fabric redily available, more so than the US. Please post the pics, I may be very interested if I can incorporate it into the quilt with the light green.

    Thank you so much for your response on this. This project has been a challenge, for sure.

    You can post th epics here or you can PM me and post there.

    Thankks again, Drue
