I have not had any problem with the quilting fabric I have bought at JoAnns. I use my coupons though and try to get the better quilting fabric or the Kona. I bought a collection from a LQS, made the baby quilt, washed it before sending it out and was VERY unhappy with how it came out so now I'm not so cut and dry about 'where' the fabric comes from but rather on 'how' the fabric feels and looks. I do have a few that I made from the Keepsake fabrics (the JoAnns brand) that I have washed and dried over and over with no problems. Maybe I have just been very lucky. Happy quilting.
