I' going to make a quilt as a surprise retirement gift. She is a geologist and lives rocks. She likes blues and greens. The only rock fabric I can find comes in greys or browns.The fabric from spoonflower is mostly green. (http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/31...-by-elramsay3M ). Mixed with batiks I think it would be beautiful.

I'm making a surprise retirement quilt for a geologist and she likes blues and greens. The fabric from spoonflower is green and beautiful. See geode treasure mossy green. All the other fabric I can find is brown or gray and not as pretty. If you go to dspoonflower and see it you would agree.

The Kona Cotton Ultra is best I've found for quilting, the weave is tighter/closer.
It's very pricey tho, to me. They do have some great designs, yes, But unless I was designing my own (and I've never had anything printed larger than a swatch 8x8 @5.00 or a FQ at 10.50) I would find a print/design elsewhere.

Just recently received a swatch booklet of their fabrics/wallpaper/gift wrap. Yes, if you have time, It would be a good idea to order the samples.
Marietta can you expand on what you said.....do you mean you can send them say photos of your grandchildren and get them printed on the fabric type of your choice? And an 8x8 would cost approx $5? I would love that and frankly would be a good price considering the cost of printer cartridges and the print fabric to print on.

When first I found out about Spoonflower, I ordered one of their stock issues on quilting fabric.
It disappointed me in every way: colors not as depicted (reds came out pink) quality of fabric poor.
I hope they have changed for the better.
