Last year a friend of mine opened up a quilting store.  At one of the events she attended she found this fabulous fabric that has floral bordered labels on it.  I got three of the labels because she said she hasn't been able to find the fabric anywhere.  So if anyone knows where that fabric can be bought could you give me a link or let me know the manufacturer?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Without more to go on it is hard to help.  Is there no part of the selvage with any info?  What I would suggest is take a good quality digital photo of what you are looking for and send a post to Missing Fabrics.  I have used this site more than once to find another piece of fabric I needed or to identify a manufacturer - Missing Fabrics  - Scroll to the bottom to see links for current ads.  People who have the fabric in their stash will sometimes be willing to sell it.

One thing you should know is quilting fabrics are usually a one-run deal.  In other words, the print is produced one time for one fabric run, shipped out all over the country and never produced again.  So, if you see something you love, buy all you can because you will most likely never see it again.

Thank you for the link and for the information about one runs.  Both information that I can use.   I sent the information off to my friend as soon as I saw it.  And I added the website to my favorites as well.  Thank you very much.
