The bicycles were from Kona Bay!

I wrote to Kona Bay fabrics and sent the picture of the selvage I'd received from a fellow quilter.  I asked if any was available and if there was any chance they would do a reprint in the future (it's very different from what they print now!)  These delightful people (Barbara) actually responded.  Great company with wonderful customer service!  Just wish they would print this again!  See response below picture.


Aloha Sally,

The wonderful bicycle fabric you inquired about was printed in conjuction with the late Diana Leone, and will not be reprinted, per our Owner.

Have you tried (forgive me if I've mentioned this prior) FindMyFabric.com or FabShopHop.com or other Fabric Finder search engines (if you type "fabric finding search engine" you will see a list of sites.  You will be able to post the picture of the fabric you submitted to us and that will help others know precisely the fabric you seek.

Best of luck in your search; it is a wonderful fabric, and one that I myself would have purchased!  It would be darling with a little bit of red in there I think.

Be sure to submit a picture of your completed project using this fabric for a chance to be included in the "What I did with my Kona Bay fabric" section in a future issue of
Fabric Vine magazine.

Mahalo,
Barbara

What a great response! I swear I had some of this in the 1990's. I will have to go through some of my "ancient" boxes and if I find it I will send you some!

Pam I'm sooo jealous! You're lucky. I have a tiny piece and just love it.
