    Does anyone on the QB know if there is Notre Dame fabric? I am wanting to make a quilt for a benefit for a five year old with very serious cancer. The little guy is a huge Notre Dame fan, but I am not having any luck finding fabric.

    I searched too and didn't find anything. What about using their colors and making the ND logo in the middle like this:

    I did find a fleece panel with ND in the center at Bear Paw quilting, but I really wanted to make something that is a real quilt. It seems they sell so much better at a benefit. I can't believe that no one has come up with ND fabric yet.

    That is a thought. I am no good at applique but guess I could try.

    Surely someone in the area knows how crazy quilters are for specific fabrics.

    Probably the same one I found at Bear Paw Quilting. It is nice but I had my heart set on regular cotton fabric.

    Just went to their book store and nope no sheets at the moment - I think your best bet right now is applique. Notre Dame is very protective of their logo and I think that is why the cotton fabric is so hard to find :cry:

    You won't find ND cotton fabric anywhere. ND tightly controls how fabric with their trademark is used. Twenty years ago I bought some with the leprechaun on it at a local shop and was making schrunchies for a campus fundraiser. They found out about it, rushed over to the fabric store, pulled the fabric off the shelf and threatened to sue both the store and me. DO NOT appliqué or in any other manner produce their icons. If they find out about it they will confiscate it and sue you for copyright and trademark infringement. I am not joking. The cause for which you are making the project makes no difference to them. If you use their icons (including the phrase "fighting Irish") they will come after you. They are even suing Catholic schools that use "Fighting Irish" as their mascots, including the Indianapolis school that actually created the name and gave it to ND.
