I came across this blog while looking for info on place to do custom
fabric printing:
http://www.trueup.net/fabric-study/digital-fabric-printing-service-guide-and-giveaway /

FWIW, I just designed some fabric to be printed at Spoonflower and am
not completely happy with it - the printing was fine and it washes ok
but IMHO the fabric is too light weight to be "quilting cotton".  But I
think if I line my fabric I'll be ok. I am going to spray baste my
printed fabric onto some lightweight white cotton and then cut and sew
the two layers as one.

The blog was a happy find.  Amongst other topics every Friday there is a
summary of which online sites are having sales. Could be especially
tempting for those who don't need to contend with shipping across the
border to the great white north!

Cool! Thanks for a great idea. I can't count the number of times I've
wished for a fabric nobody has designed yet. (Although that does not
mean I could design it myself... but it's worth a try!)

I went to the other site, Fabric on Demand, and noticed 2 weights of
cotton, 6oz and 4oz. Do you remember what the weight of your fabric
is?

The designing part is a lot of fun! I found a site that explains the
basic principals...I'll look for it and post it.
