Hey guys!!! I want to make this chevron quilt for friend's bby shower. It says i need 42 5x5 squares  of each color. The person used moda bella solid charm packs.  I've been trying to google packs by other brands since i want girly colors and only moda shows up. is that a thing exclusive to this brand? the colors they have in their packs are blues, greys, and neutrals. I guess I could cut my own squares but i'm too lazy! lol can anyone suggest an online store where i would have luck? thanks! this is the link to the tutorial btw.

I've bought fabric with them before & always had great service.

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

Check out these two tutorials for essential the same quilt, but they seem like less sewing/ cutting. Maybe they will help?

I was going to suggest the exact same place.  I order from them internationally and have only ever had one problem (package stuck at customs for a few weeks).  Typically though really fast and great fabric.

I've gotten most of mine on Amazon or Green Fairy Quilts (smaller selection but free US shipping if they have what you need).

I've also window shopped at Fat Quarter Shop, but I haven't bought anything there yet because I've been able to find the same items for less (price + shipping) other places. If I ever place a larger order, they might be more cost effective.

I have bought charm packs from Etsy and Ebay with great success.  It would be a lot cheaper for you to buy the yardage and cut your own using a rotary cutter and mat; especially since it uses such a limited number of colors.
