    My LQS had block of the month yesterday and someone brought in 2 quilts she had backed with fabric from Benartex that was pre-printed for quilting. Maybe this has already been posted here as I don't think it's something new, although the LQS owner didn't know about it.

    It's available at http://fabric.com. I looked, it's about $14/yd. I am so tired of marking my quilts and I have such a backlog of tops to finish up - I may bite the bullet. I will easily get the free shipping!

    Considering how expensive it is to have a quilt quilted, this isn't to bad of a price. I may have to try some on my next quilt. Thanks for the link

    At 108" wide, it seems really reasonably priced

    Still not exactly sure what this is, but Fabric.com has it listed on Amazon.com for $7.98 a yard.

    The free motion quilting pattern is printed on this backing fabric. That means you quilt it with the back of the quilt facing up and you don't have to mark (I fmq but I have to mark everything!).

    Amma,thanks for the link! I had the worst time trying to find it!! :D
    I agree with the poster who said it's cheaper than sending out to a LAQ- I'm going to get some! :D

    PS. Just got 8 yards of it on Amazon for 7.98 per yard and free shipping!!!!!!!!!!! :D
