    Sorry, but you're not going to find it in cotton I believe it does come in fleece - check at Jo-Ann Fabrics or Hancock Fabrics or just Google "Red Wing fabric". The other thing you could do is look in the men's section for sleeping pajamas made out of Red Wings fabric and cut it up for a quilt. Good luck!

    Here's what I just learned about cotton sports fabrics. It comes into the local shops just before/during the season (football can be found in early fall, for example). When it is sold out, it's just gone. I tried to get some Seahawk fabric and found what I wanted on line. They sent a substitution Seahawk fabric and was told I should be happy to have received that. The fleece is easy to find all year, but the cotton is a problem.

    I do not believe that the NHL authorizes any yardage in cotton at any time of the year. You can find it in fleece, as sandyms mentioned, but I finally found some sheets (at salvation army) and my girlfriend found some flannel pajamas that she purchased and cut up.

    Paper Princess is correct. The NLH does not license their logos on fabric (cotton or fleece). Pottery Barn has a line of sheets with the NHL logos. If you applique, you could probably create something based on the logo. I've thought about doing that for the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Cheers, K

    I am not sure if this will help you, but what about using spoonflower.com and having them print your fabric. I don't know if they would have issues since it is a licensed logo and all that but since you aren't selling it you might be ok! Let me know if that works!

    You might check Feild's Fabric, near the airport in Kalamazoo. They had a huge assortment of cotton sports fabric last time I was in there. They also have stores in Grand Rapids. Good Luck!

    If you havent already checked try Bear Paw Quilt CO. If they do not have it perhaps they will know who does, their fabrics are specialized along those lines.Pat

    Depending on how much fabric you need you could check to see if there are any nursing scrubs made with this logo. I've done this in past to get team fabric not otherwise available larger sizes have quite a bit of fabrics in tops.
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.

    Just thinking, if you strike out on the printed fabric, why not make a larger scale applique of the emblem and use that for the center and then smaller blocks using team colors or whatever.

    Got all excited so I went and looked. This is a brand new item and won't be available until 2014.

    I ended up embroidering the logo on quilt squares. I was very lucky that several ladies sent me SL Cardinal fabric. You can always count on the gals on the quilt messageboard.
