I know there are people who will only buy fabric from a true quilt shop. But, how does the fabric at Joann's, Wlamart, etc compare to the fabric in the quilt shops. I'm a new quilter, getting ready to purchase fabric for a Baltimore Album Hand Applique quilt and I'm wondering... Where the best place would be to purchase my fabric? And, what is the difference between the Batiks, Moda, Kona, Calico's, etc...How do they make fabric and is it all made the same way???? I don't mean to sound like a moron but some of the fabrics I've looked at look like bed sheet fabric and others are thicker and heavier than others and seems to be a better quality than others. What would be the best fabric to make my quilt out of?
