How do I find matching fabrics online - not sure where or what to search

I'm looking for 3 or 4 co-ordinating fabrics. I dont have the best eye so want to just buy them from the same designer collection so they'll look ok together. But I don't think I'm searching either the right websites or search terms as I'm having to click each fabric individually to look at and I just want to see the bundle together, click the quantities I need and pay.

I found a few on Fabric rehab, here - does anyone know of other sites that show their fabrics like this or what I need to search for to find them please. bundles? stacks?

Try fat quarters, they are small pieces of fabric using in patchwork so you can often buy them in bundles. They are only small though so it would depend on how much material you need.

Try ebay as well, just make sure you read the description for the measurements.

Thanks I'll try searching for fat quarters - they'll be big enough partly & I can just buy larger quantities of the others needed - I just want to see them all grouped together for me in a photo - I forget what I've just seen when I have to click them all individually.

Some other sites that show bundles are plushaddict, laughing hedgehog,elephantinmyhandbag, sew hot. There are loads. Just look for fat quarter bundles, sometimes categorised under pre cuts.

what are you making?

I've found this website that recommends matching fabrics for the one you have chosen

Thanks for those recommendations - I've slipped into a Pinterest black hole now I know to be looking for fat quarter bundles smile I'm recovering & lining a little vanity case so I think any of these cotton/craft patterns I'm now finding will do the job. I will also check out the myfabrics recommendations - as I've seen a couple Michael Miller fabrics I loved but not keen on rest of the pack.

Village Haberdashery online shop is very good.

I often use the kona colour matching on the online shops - some plains can really bulk out a bundle of fabrics for quilt making.

I also have a bit of a kona habit... I'm trying to get enough to make a really good kona scrap quilt!

Plush Addict have a matching service for thread and fabric, so if you can see a few you like there you could always email for advice?

The Cotton Patch group fabrics by designer and design. They tend to sell packs of fabric and then underneath, you can buy individual FQs so if you don't like a fat quarter in the pack you can miss it out and perhaps, if there are enough different designs you can chose something different but from the same range.

Moda do some good collections; search for "moda fabric" and view the images for some inspiration, then search by the collection name for shops that sell it.
