I know there are some wonderful ladies out there that are great at locating fabrics. I am trying to make a quilt for my grandson and can't locate enough of the print I want to use for the backing. Even piecing it I would prefer to have more of it so that it will be the main focus.

It is a Thomas Train print. Green w/ railroad tracks and signs. I have never loaded a picture so hope this woks. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have located 1/2 yd on Etsy but can't find any other there or on EBay. Don't know where to look.

Etsy and a place called funfabrics.com all have this print in red. eBay had some in green. MSQC has some coordinating prints if you like a mixed print fabric back. In my google search bar I typed in Thomas the Train green fabric. Hope this helps:)

Thank you so much for locating thus but for some reason this won't come up on my U.S. search. Your link is from Canada and I can't log in to Ebay thru it. I don't know how to do a search by seller so can't figure out how to purchase this. So frustrating since I really need it.

Monique,

I can't get this on my US Ebay search. I can't log in with my US email address thru your link. I can't contact them since I can't log in. Is there any way I could ask a huge favor. Could you contact the seller and ask them to contact me about this. I could PM you my email address to send them.

Such an imposition but I can't find this fabric anywhere else. Thank you so much if you are able to help.

Thank you, Thank for, Thank you ! I was able to purchase it. Now I have to just hope the seller actually still has it. I have had 4 orders cancelled on me in the last couple of months due to the seller being out of the listed item.

Thank you to all who took the time to help me. Forum members are fabulous!

Thank you all for your help. I received shipping confirmation so am definitely a happy girl today. I was really struggling trying to figure out how to piece the backing with what I had and disappointed that it would be so different from his brothers quilt. The quilts are similar but one has more red and is backed in the same print but in red. This one is blues and greens do I didn't want the red for it.:icon_bigsmile:
