Default Looking for

I am looking for fabric with 18 wheeler diesel trucks on it. This will be for an adult so no kids pattern. I haven't been able to find any that even comes close to what I am looking for. I do know that one of you may be able to guide me in the right direction. Blessing to all.

My new Quilt magazine has an article about Maria Kalinowski . She is the director of Kanvas Studio and she has a line of fabric called "Man Cave" You might find something in her stuff the article mentions things like fast cars,cigars and bottles of beer.

Found this:

Also, last week on Fons&Porter quilting, Jody Davis was making a duck quilt. She said she had the fabric printed from a company on the internet. You send them what you want and they print the fabric for you. Maybe someone has the information for that company, or has the episode taped and can get it for you.
If this is for a trucker, you could take a picture of his truck and have fabric made. How cool!!

Good luck.

Spoonflower allows you to have your own design printed.

I found this: http://skyequilters.wordpress.com/20...3/truck-quilt/

I did a search for transportation theme fabric and found a lot of realistic designs featuring Route 66 Hwy signs, Hwy places and maps of interstates and vintage maps of the US hwy. which will be good for backgound and borders.
