I just did a quick search and the place I bought my quilt does custom work. Earlier today I searched for fabric but so far no luck.

You know...you might look for local quilt/fabric stores and give them a call to see if they could recommend local quilters--call and ask if they carry quilting fabric and/or have a quilting department--rather than using The Company Store. I'd be very surprised if there isn't at least one local quilt shop--we have a very well known local fabric place that carries wonderful quilt fabrics and has a large quilters group. With a local quilter, you'd likely get more fabric options, better service and at a better price...

Second Terrie's suggestion. Herself and I were wandering around a newly opened yarn/fabric store, I found some yarn that would have made a perfect sweater for her, she loved the yarn but snickered at the whole idea of knitting a sweater for herself. The store owner must have overheard the snorting and mentioned that they had several customers who did custom knitting. Boom. Her Christmas present, handed to me on a silver platter.

If it doesn't work out you can always knit your brows

I found some fabric with the right idea (see thumbnail below) but it was a satin weave and the dots are too big. But I am posting a photo to show what I was thinking of. The thing is keep getting distracted by more dramatic designs. Like the one at this link, even though I don't a big chunk of blue in my bedroom.
