    Blank Quilting just put up *lots* of new fabric pictures on their site! This group is called "Yellowstone". Only three designs in this group, but they are going to be available on regular cotton and also flannel.

    I have two questions: the first picture, are those elk?

    Secondly... which do you think would be more useful, regular cotton or flannel?

    Yes they are elk and I prefer cotton over flannel. Thanks for showing us this line of fabric.

    I prefer working with cotton - unless it's a guy quilt. They tend to love the feel of flannel and those fabrics I would more than likely use to make a guy quilt.

    I use a lot more cotton than flannel, but this fabric would make a nice back in flannel. I really like the patterns on these fabrics, but I am not sure I love the colors. My brother who is the hunter of our family would love these kinds of fabrics.

    I live in Montana & have been to Yellowstone many times, but have never seen a blacktail! Lots of mule deer & whitetail (which we also have on our ranch).

    I would lean towards the flannel, but either one would be nice.

    love those Elk in 1st pic and the deers in the 2nd one, those buffalo are gorgeous. Depends what you're making to use either cotton or flannel but I think cottons is easier to do....

    Great fabrics! I'd use both cotton and flannel. Flannel for a nice backing...

    Love the fabric. However, I was hoping they'd have something with the colors or feel of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. And how about Old Faithful?

    Elizabeth's Studio makes an elk fabric (we've carried it for a while). Which one do you think is better? Theirs, or the one by Blank?

    (Posting both side-by-side for convenience...)

    I guess I should post all the buffalo fabrics together too. Which one do you like the best?

    Charlee is correct about the critters and what they are.

    As far as the new fabrics, they are very nice and would make a great quilt. Cotton or flannel? Hmmm, flannel.

    Have to admit that I like Elizabeth's prints better. Very realistic.

    Cotton for the front and flannel for the back. I love the soft feel of flannel next to my skin, winter or summer.

    If your making just a wall-hanging I would go with the cotton. But if it is for a bed quilt I like the idea of the flannel. Someone said use it in a backing. That is a great idea. I have a flannel quilt made that needs a backing fabric. I may just have to get one of these to use in the backing for that quilt! Thanks for sharing the info with us.
