    This is making me crazy. I just spend a huge amt of time searching for this cool Little Hot Rod Race Track fabric - I first happened to see it on a website - from New Zealand. And even though it's from a line that you can get OTHER fabrics from here, no one has that particular fabric. Grrrrrrrrr. It would be the coolest piece ever to back this Hot Wheel quilt for ds. Whywhywhy. There, just had to get that off my chest! :lol:

    Don't we have a friend from NZ on the board? Maybe she could pick it up for you?

    I actually checked the currency exchange just to see - fabric must be very expensive there - like half again as much as here, so even for a yard, it's kind of much - then shipping. *sigh*

    Here's a link - wouldn't that be fun? http://www.countrydawnquilting.com/c...menu-1000.html

    I only saw one other company, in the States, with it listed - and then marked as out of stock.

    YEAH - I was hoping that someone would find it at a reasonable cost. But I think you do need to order it soon. You know how things get scarce after being mentioned on this board. :thumbup:

    The reason you've been having trouble finding it is that it is out of print. We used to carry it - and we still would, if there was any more to be had.

    But... we sold the last of it to a customer in Australia.

    Which is right next to New Zealand.

    Proving that it's a small world, after all...

    :)

    There is a similar fabric from the followup collection - Going Places - it's not sold as a panel, like the playmat is, because though the design repeats the roads just keep going and going, so it can be used as continuous yardage:
