    Hello fellow crafters! I have been pulling out my hair on this. My sister has asked if I can make a baby quilt designed around the attached photo, but I have no idea of the designer or name of the fabric.
    There are princesses, dragons, and castles on turquoise blue.

    Can anyone recognize this fabric?

    Thanks in advance!!
    Anne :-)

    Do you have any idea of when the photo was taken? The older the fabric, the less likely yardage of it can be found.

    eBay tends to be a good place to look for older fabrics. I just went there and searched on "princess fabric". It came back with 35 pages of items. I looked through the first 2 pages (thumbnail pictures) and didn't see this fabric. Maybe you will have the patience to go through all 35 pages. You can also put in a "saved search" so that each time new listings come through with the words "princess" and "fabric" in the title, you will get an email notification.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea when the photo was taken. I too was concerned that the fabric may be older and thus, harder to find. Thanks for the suggestion!

    It looks like the designed fabric I use to see at Hancock's Fabric store. The children's fabrics there were always stocked with designs not usually found.

    Is the fabric flannel?

    Was this purchased at a retail store or was it handmade?

    In Houston we have a place called High Fashion Fabrics, and I swear if the fabric isn't in the store, you don't need it! If ever I wanted to pay $400 a yard for fabric, this is where I would go. I once bought a formal dress and I wanted to put long sleeves on it, and believe it or not, I found the exact fabric at High Fashion Fabrics!

    Here is their website. They don't show everything they have, but their contact information is included - perhaps you could email this photo and they might be able to help you.

    Good luck in your search!

    I found the fabric but it has a pink background. At least the name and manufacturer is listed, that may help narrow the search.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! That website also sells the blue fabric. I used that description on Google and the fabric is called:
    "Fairy Princess" by Leeré Aldrich for Clothworks.

    If anyone is interested, the link below also includes a free quilt pattern using this fabric (which saves me a lot of trouble in creating a new one for my sister!).

    Thanks so much for the help and the quick replies! :)
