    I would like to see more tone on tone fabrics especially in the darker colours, particularly black and dark brown and navy and purple. So often blacks read as gray or have greenish or bluish tinges. Finding backgrounds often takes me forever and many times just don't seem to be available. I know that these must be the more "boring" fabrics to design but quilters need them. Often tone on tones are just tiny florals and I would like to see other designs incorporated into them perhaps geometrics, tiny stripes, butterflies or even sewing objects. Right now, I just can't find the black that I need.

    OH MY can you imagine the number of quilts that could be made for well deserving nurses!

    How about "format"? That's probably not the right word.

    What I mean to ask is... do you think there's an unmet need for panel-type fabrics? Squares (as for pillow panels) or the 2/3 yard panels that make up into quick wallhangings if you just add borders? How about apron panels? I asked Timeless Treasures if they would be having an apron panel as part of the new chef group and the answer was no. :-(

    I would love to be able to find more horse fabrics that are English riding related, rather than western or the usual hunting scenes - fabrics featuring show jumping and dressage, and maybe some with the different warmblood breeds and their logos.

    Fabric featuring F1 cars and famous circuits such as the Nurburgring would also be cool.

    See, that is my problem - those are great fabrics, but they are all western themed, not English :-(

    Thanks for the link. I have seen that fabric, not quite what I am looking for. I might just have to make do, while I continue my search... Penni

    I would like fabrics specifically designed for stack n whack and one block wonders. So a long repeat 24", motifs larger that 3" and a non-plain background, preferably swirly! At the moment, you really have to hunt among novelties, large florals, Asians etc. It would be nice to see some specific ranges.

    PS I hope the chef fabric will have some of these criteria - I have a friend who is a chef and she would love an OBW with a cheffy theme. So I'll be looking out for that. :-D
