    Been looking for something like this for several years now!

    Elizabeth's Studio is coming out with this snowmobile fabric in August. I think this looks very good!

    That is really neat fabric. Glad you found it.

    Does anyone know if there is snowboarding fabric out there?

    I was born in northern Minnesota (Cook MN) and grew up on snowmobiles. I really like this fabric a lot!

    Thanks for the link to the snowboard fabric. I have a friend whose grandson loves to snowboard and she wants to make him a quilt. I will send her the link. Thanks again.

    When we bought this house we knew they had a bunch of girls because of all the girlie colours in the bedrooms! But I also knew that they had had a son who had passed away at age 8 from leukemia. We started stripping wallpaper in the bedrooms and four layers down in the room we had chosen for our son's nursery was a snowmobile wallpaper that was SO much like that fabric!! Your picture brought that memory right back even though it has been 27 years since we bought the house!

    Interesting tidbit? Ryan (my son) is the only person who sleeps peacefully in that room. My schnauzer won't even go inside the room. I think Roger was perfectly OK with a little boy being in that room, but everyone else he wants OUT!

    That's VERY interesting!

    Was Roger the little boy who (sadly) died?

    Sometimes wishes get granted in advance! There IS an ATV fabric: http://snipurl.com/vsygh

    I don't know what a "quad" is, though... please clue me in?

    Boy, is this going to be purchased!! We have 3 snowmobiles and my DH is just a plain nut over it. I'll have to do it for x-mas for him.

    Oh no, another in waiting!!!!

    Thanks for the heads up!! :-D

    Favorite Fabrics: a "Quad" is a four wheel ATV. Some refer to the older model three wheel ATV's as "Trikes".
