Wanting to make a quilt for the teardrop and having a hard time finding material that has camping designs.... such as trailers, laterns, tents, etc...

Any of you quilters have a good website or source to share with me?

thanks,
Tina

Doug Hodder has a quilt shop in CA. He usually can get some or tell you where!

Tina...right now the only things that are out there from the major manufacturers is "Happy Camper" from Clothworks....it's been released 2x and has done well, it's been out for a while. Michael Miller also has the latest one, only out like a month....can't remember the official name of it, but it's mostly canned hams and other vintage trailers and late 50's cars on it. I made a quilt for the new trailer out of it. Check out their web sites...in addition to the feature fabrics, they both have a group of coordinates. Any time there is a tear on fabric, I usually get it...but it's few and far between for the most part. Here's the site showing what Michael Miller has...might need to check www.fabshophop.com for the Happy Camper. Your chances are better in independent shops. I don't think they were made available to the big box fabric stores. Doug

Stumbled across this fabric on Etsy. The seller also has it in pink. Not cheap, but it's out there.

Lots of cool fabric on Etsy. I purchased some s'mores fabric today to make a pillowcase for our TD.

One of those camping fabrics has a VW bus on it. I don't want to buy any yardage, but anyone has a scrap with that bus on it....

Well, that's the first time I ever heard a woman say she don't want to buy no yardage... :lol: My wife got more fabric than most fabric stores, but she don't never turn a chance to buy more... :R
