    I researched the top 5 fabric exporting countries. They are India, China, Bandalalash, Pakistan and Turkey. The top 5 cotton fabric exporting countries are China, India, Korea, Pakistan and Turkey. So just which countries are the favorite with those looking for really good LQS fabric?

    Cheap (as in poor quality) and inexpensive are not necessarily synonymous.

    Expensive and high/good quality are not always synonymous, either.

    Sometimes the fabric is the same pattern as in LQS but the thread count is usually lower in the fabric at Walmart

    19 years ago I bought fabric from Walmart to make a quilt for DH and I. It was better fabric then they sell today and the quilt I made is still in use today. It has had many, many washings and there is not a faded, frayed or torn spot in it. There is a picture of it in my Avitar...next to missgigglewings.

    Its the one with the dark green borders.

    Finally it came in the other day and I stopped to look at it. There are lots of pretty prints in everything from florals to juvenile prints and others. So here's the thing the bolt end says "undetermined fiber content." If I had to guess it is a poly/cotton blend. Thin and not good enough for quilts. To bad to there are some beautiful prints I would love to buy.
    Saw it today and agree--pretty prints but not nice fabrics.
