    I just finished making a quilt for my husband and it came about 110" square and i have only seen 108" backing material. Is there any wider fabric out there that i am not aware of? please lead me to it...

    Thanks

    Yup, there is. A little more costly though. Check out some of the online shops.

    This site has some that are 110, but I have not tried them.

    The nice thing about muslin is that it shows up the quilting. I think it is also a reasonably priced option for backing when some of the cotton is getting so expensive.

    Muslin use to be the backing fabric of choice.

    thank you all for your kind replies. I guess i have an important mission to go to Joann's tomorrow and dig into this. Hopefully it comes in a good matching color with the quilt.
