    Help me find fabric??

    I found this quilt pattern in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine of Christmas items to make, and I want to make it but cannot find fabrics like are in it. Anyone got a clue about the line or where I might look?

    Thanks,
    Bonnie

    Very pretty. It looks like Kansas Troubles or Thimbleberry type fabrics to me.

      I may be wrong but don't most magazine state what fabric is used?

        I agree, Monique. I haven't seen any patterns that don't give credit to the fabric manufacturer.
        Bonnie, when was the magazine published? So many fabric lines are only available for a short while. But you should be able to find something just as beautiful and close to the line pictured. It is a very pretty quilt!

          Sometimes the fabric used is on the back pages.

            None of my old ones do. Had to go look.

              The fabric line is from 2009 and it's called Holiday Flourish 2 collection by Peggy Toole.

                If you can't find the exact fabric you could use whatever you like.

                  There is a pretty Christmas line called Holiday Flourish 9 that has those colors. You might try checking it to see if you would like it.

                    Chances are that if the fabric line is from 2009 it would be nearly impossible to find any. I would take a picture of the quilt to the fabric store and see if you can find some with a similar look. You may find something even nicer.

                      It reminds me of the style of fabric that Jinny Beyer designs. Perhaps there is something in her current line that might appeal to you.

                        Thanks for the great input. The fabrics in the quilt are no longer available so I am searching for alternatives.

                          I agree Peggi - Jinny Beyer was the first thing I thought of too.

                            Unless the author's intention is to sell fabric, the fabric line/pattern/colors used can be unavailable by the time the magazine is published.

                            Use whatever you like and it will be more personal.

                            Best wishes for many successful projects.

                              Connecting Threads has something similar. http://www.connectingthreads.com/col...lectionBox-313
