    Pink Camo Question

    I'm looking for pink camo in cotton, for quilting. Here's the problem: I'm wary of buying online because I don't know what quality I'm going to be getting. Our local Joann's and Walmart stores don't have any at all. They told me to look back during hunting season and they might have a better selection, but I really don't want to wait that long.

    My brother and his wife are really into hunting. For their wedding gifts they bought rifles. Now they're going to have their first baby in November and they want a baby quilt done in pink camo and owls. If I wait until hunting season, this baby might not have the quilt until her first Christmas. I've found pink camo in stretch knit fabric and duck cloth, but nothing of the quilting grade. What would you suggest? Do you have a specific site that you trust that would carry it? Or do I have to wait?

    There was a pink camo as part of Moda's line "Meadow Friends" by Deb Strain. Out maybe 2 years ago. I think my LQS still has a bolt. How much do you need?

    I googled "pink camo fabric cotton" and a lot of sites popped up. Fabric.com and Hancock's were listed. Also, there was a pink camo Minky, which would make a wonderful baby quilt.

    Good luck with your hunt!

    I was at my local Walmart last night and they had pink camo .... I was looking for the blue .... so Murphy's rule applies: whatever I'm looking for won't be there. Good Luck!

    I got pink camo at Walmart, but it was last year so it might have been during hunting season.

    Just returned from LQS -- they had about 2 yards left. 'I'd be glad to get it for you and mail it to you. PM me for details.

    Are you willing to use heavier cotton fabric? The pink camo at JoAnns is with the heavier weight fabrics----------maybe with the denims.

    I have used the Realtree camo fabric in all of the available colors for 3 quilts. Other than the black which I only find in duck cloth, the fabic has been 7oz cotton and very easy to work with. It is a little heavy but softens up nicely when washed. For a baby it may be a bit heavy in the cotton but I think you can also find the pink in fleece.

    Thank you so much, everyone! I'm sorry I didn't check back in sooner, but we've had house guests all week. Linda, unfortunately, I'm going to need more than two yards and I'd prefer to buy it in the same dye lot. Thanks for looking, though!
