I just discovered a great quilting shop in Bayswater North, Melbourne.
It is called Patchwork with Gail and is on Canterbury Rd. Inside the Keith Fagg Tile shop...just a few doors down from Spotlight.
They have a bit of a site where you can see what is in their store. A LOT of fabrics including Amy Butler Midwestern Modern 2 collection for $20/metre. The prices are pretty good, most fabrics are $14 - $20. They have 12,000 different fabrics.
Here is the link for more info...www.patchwor kwithgailb.com
Hope someone finds this helpful. My Dad actually found it...I guess being in a Tile store!
