Aloha all,

Just joined the forum yesterday and have had a lot of fun seeking out helpful hints.

My 8 year old GS' bedroom in done with a skate board theme. He wants his Oma to make a new throw quilt, 'cause his other one is "too babyish". Having problems finding fabric.

Hoping someone has seen a site which has some.

Any help would be appreciated, nothing on the Oahu island quilting stores.

Mahalo, Silverlining/Ruby

Ebay has some. It will tell how many yards are available and you type in the quanity that you want. Just go to ebay.com and type in skateboard fabric.

P.S. Make sure you check out the seller's ratings before you buy.

Thanks Bec and Bernice,

Tried eBay last week, but will try again. Haven't been on Fabric.com so will also try that site. DGS is wanting his before it gets cold...TG they live in Burbank, CA...will be a while before it gets cold, cold.

Aloha Me,

Thanks for all those links, just wonderful. And I'm really interested in thefabstudio.com - I'm a graphic designer, would be great to have some of my theatre work put to fabric.

Mahalo, Ruby

I saw some flannel at Joanns with skateboarders on it-green with brown and tan silhouettes.
