I like this site for fabric (fabric.com and search for 'camping' in it):

Link didn't work for me (Gloria.) Pam, yes, I've found fabric there, too.

Glora, your link took us to the main page of the Missing Fabrics making it necessary to go through all the posts to find yours. It might help if you post a photo of the fabric you are looking for or a link to your actual post on that website.

I am not a quilter but I do play at sewing a little bit from time to time. Here are a couple of items I made recently for the trailer.

One is a nylon garden flag for hanging outside the trailer at meets and the other is one of dish towels I made.

Here's a photo update on my decorating ventures. The first photos are of my Southwest/Native American theme and the latter ones are of my Fall/Autumn theme. I found these terrific fleece blankets from Cynthia Hilts of "Native Fleece". Home - Native Fleece

Thanks, Pam for adding the photo to my post!

Carol, love the dishtowel and the flag! Hubby's quillow will have bears orJeeps or something, but mine will have trailers! Such a cheerful applique! Thanks for the inspiration!

BTW, how do I upload a photo from my computer?

Love the hiking boots fabric!

Did you make the tire cover with a plastic tablecloth?

Yes, the tire cover is made from a vinyl/plastic (?) picnic tablecloth identical to the one on the picnic table. I bought them at Rite Aid at this time of year.

Gloria, it looks like there was some of the fabric you where looking for on EBay last month, you may want to set up a EBay new item notification in case some more gets listed.

I did buy some from ebay, just over a yard, but I would like some more. Thanks for the suggestion about setting up a new notification. Will do that!

I went to FindMyFabric.com, searched on Jeep and found this:

jeep - Fabric Search - Find My Fabric

Not the same color as yours but it has yardage so maybe you could use it as a contrast. Another idea would be to look for a fabric with a similar or complimentary background print and use that to extend your Jeep fabric. Interesting Jeep quilt here: Rough and Tumble Quilting – GraceLaced

And Carol H., your appliques are really cute!

Carol, I don't do Facebook so I could not see that quilt. But here is a cute fabric that actually has some FGRVs on it: Amazon.com: Vintage Trailers Camp Park Green Fabric By The YD: Arts, Crafts & Sewing

Thanks, Rosemary!

That print is very similar....although it looks more like landrovers, but I will be considering it! Love that Jeep quilt, too!

Thanks for looking!

Found this fabric a couple years ago to make a quilt for my yet-to-be-completed teardrop trailer. Made coordinating plaid pillowcases as well. Then had a friend with a longarm quilting machine do the quilting.

Cute fabrics, Lil! Nice choice of colours. Great idea--matching pillowcases! I can just imagine cozy ones in flannel, especially in the spring/fall!
