    My DD and her husband are runners. They run 1/2 marathons and relays. Does anyone know where I might purchase some fabric with runners on it? I checked eBay, but probably didn't use the right description. Thanks!

    We carry two "runners" fabrics in our shop:

    The second one is on backorder right now, but should be back in stock in about two weeks.

    My daughter runs marathons. I made her a quilt many years ago with a fabric with pink sneakers and quilted the outline of sneakers in the borders. I'll try to get a pick of it but I am sure the fabric is real old. She started running at 11 and is now 23 :)

    I bought material with runners at Hayloft Fabrics in Morgantown, PA. They do have an online service. It's listed under sports fabric. It's black with white runners--I don't know how to post the picture. Timeless Treasures Item #: SPORT-C8294 Black
    Item Name: Runners

    Unfortunately, I found nothing about runners on bearpawquilting.com. Bummer! Thanks, though.

    Hi grandma7, I just went to quiltshops.com and put marathon runners is their search and here is what came up .... try these shops.

    http://search.myquiltshops.com/cgi-server/quiltshops/nph-myqssearch.cgi?thumbnails=

    Hmmm ..... for some reason the link I just posted is not working ...... anyway just go to quiltshops.com and type in runners or marathon runners in their search .... something will show up.

    The Stitching Post Quilt Shop in Washington , indiana has 3 running themed fabric on their online store. Just put "runner" in their search box and then scroll down past the border prints. You will see them. This shop stocks tons of novelty theme fabric.
