    I hope someone can help. I am working on a quilt for my son's 10th wedding anniversary and need about 2 1/2 more yards. Just found out their bed is king not a queen! It is a Hoffman batik #D229, color: 66, a reddish-brown leafy print. My LQS doesn't have any more.

    If this link doesn't take you exactly to that swatch, just type in the d229. It's on sale for $8.99.

    I found it by using fabshophop.com fabric search. It's a great site to use when you are looking for a particular fabric!

    All I could find for the D229 color 66 is a floral pattern batik, not the leaves.. :?

    I just typed in the name for one I was looking for and, since it is descrtiptive name rather than a reference number, it just threw up loads of things to do with the name, NOTHING whatever to do with fabric! Did I do something wrong?

    At Fabshophop.com fabric search I typed in Hoffman batik d229, and that's how I found it. It definitly heps putting in the number, otherwise, yes, you get a ton of things you are not looking for!

    Call Elkabee at www.fabricparadise.com and see if she has any. She has so many fabrics that aren't on her web site. Wonderful lady with great (and fast) service. She's in Conneticut and she says that she'll answer the phone up until around 9:30 or 10 at night. Personally I'd call earlier but. . . .

    Try the Batik Plus website. They carry all Hoffman batiks.

    Thank you everyone for the input. I went back to my LQS this morning because when I searched the sites some of you suggested I came up with a different fabric. Wouldn't you know, I was given the wrong product number& wrong manufacturer! My purchase was still in their computer system and the very sympathetic lady (different one than last week)gave me this: Blank Textiles, Sumatra batik, #005605. Low and behold when I looked it up this afternoon it was the right one! According to their store locater it may be at a couple of stores about an hour from me. Anyway, I'm leaving on vacation to Maine tomorrow with my daughter and we plan to do our own shop hop on the way thru NH. Who knows? Maybe I'll find it. Thanks again all. Happy quilting!

    I recommend a beauty of a quilt shop just over the N.H. border, a mile or two off the highway I think exit 3. Pine Tree Quilts, 224 North Broadway, Salem N.H. Look it up on Mapquest if you're interested!

    I use to live in N.H. and this was my favorite shop to visit! I miss it down here in S.C.!

    Thank you. I'll put that one on our list of shops to stop at. It's right on our way! I love poking around different shops.

    Don't forget that you can add some wonderful borders to create a larger quilt so don't get to upset if you can't find what you are seeking. A wonderful quilt!

    When looking for batiks you can't miss at batiksetc.com which is Carol Britt's shop in Wytheville, VA. They specialize in batiks and you can check the inventory on line and buy on line. Great place to stop in if you are anywhere near the intersection of I 81 and I 77 in western VA. Carol is an awesome teacher as well.
