    Searching for coral fabric

    Coral seems to be so popular this year, but I'm having a devil of a time sourcing it. My LQS has pastel peaches and all shades of oranges. Have tried to order some through the internet and when I got them, they were more of a deep rose shade. Can any one direct me towards a fabric line that might be what I'm searching for? Thanks for your input.

    I had the same problem trying to do teal-and-coral combo for a quilt for SIL. Some colors just go out of fashion?

    Try searching for 3 Sisters Martinique - the darker fabrics are roseish but the 'coral' prints actually look like coral.

    I too have the same issue I have been trying to find Coral and peach color fabrics... not much out there ! I will be following this thread to see if anyone has the secret stash location.
    Just an FYI , this spring I did get some nice coral color batiks at Keepsake quilting... it was pricey! But I had to have it!

    Some pretty corals are labeled Salmon color.
    Got fabric?

    Coral/Salmon alert: Just received a charm pack - Moda's California Girl. Some nice corals included! Sometimes when you aren't specifically looking - there it is......Whooo Hooo!
