I decided to go with muslin to back all the applique work for my stained glass quilting series. I have found when comparing prices it would be cheaper (plus waste less fabric) if I got 108" backing fabric instead of the typical 44".
The cheapest I found so far is at walmart.com. Yes, Wal-Mart sells fabric on their website. They have 179 different fabrics (not sure if this is including the different colors and variations you can get for each fabric). They're selling 108" wide muslin in 3 yard cuts for $16.47. I really only need 2 yards (max), but so far anything I've found where I can get the exact yardage I need has been $20+ total (not inclusing shipping costs). Plus with Wal-Mart I don't have to pay for shipping if I get it shipped to the store and I get a discount because I work there....so actually its $14.82 with my discount.
Would I be getting the best deal with this (3 yards for $14.82 and no shipping cost)?
