    I am looking for good quilting quality fabric of any time of transportation that will be used in my grandson's quilt. I would prefer a white or yellow background but will look at anything right now.

    I have a yard of traffic sign fabric under the members buy, sale and trade section. It is very colorful, but has a blue background.

    Don't know specifically, but be sure to check LQS when traveling. I was looking for camping print and was having a hard time. I'm from DE and on a trip to CA went to a local shop and had 4-5 designs to pick from. Of course I got some of each. Always keep your eye open, it will come in the most unexpected place and time.

    I have about 32 inches of this if you're interested. Just pay the postage, which shouldn't be more than a couple of dollars I imagine. You have a very lucky grandson!! PM (private message) me if you are interested. And welcome!

    Hi, check out J & O fabric and E-Quilter....I've ordered fabric for my grandson's race car quilt and i really like it. If I remember correctly, they have several transportation themes to choose from. Here's a picture of the top I made using their fabrics....now just need to baste and quilt!
