    OK - I've googled this, and I still can't find the answer.

    What do you call a piece of fabric that is printed to look like a quilt top, but its not a PIECED top...it's just printed to look that way? Where do you FIND something like this?

    One of my friends has a quilt that she "LOVES" and she showed it to me...it wasn't a "real" quilt. I don't want to not call it real, because it was quilted - like stitch in the ditch...but there were no "real" ditches. It was printed that way.

    Help! My brain! :?:

    I've always heard it called a "cheater".

    Cheater sounds good. I think I have seen them at JoAnn's and WalMart.

    I have too...when I see the pre-quilted fabrics at Jo-anns (which is REALLY EXPENSIVE) I've heard ladies call it the "cheater" material. None of this material looks like a pieced quilt, though.

    Yep, always heard them called cheaters or cheater panels. Just saw one in black and white print rectangles pieced with strips of pink material at a LQS, didn't get real close to it, when I remarked how neat it was and what was the pattern, I was told it was a cheater panel. Boy was my face red :oops:

    I have seen them that are scenes and also those that look like pieced work. Good luck.

    Using better search terms, I found these:

    http://www.heritagequiltingandmore.c...h-in-r390.html

    http://www.pre-printed-quilt-tops.com/features.htm

    Wow! I could see these being helpful to learn stitch in the ditch, testing quilting patterns, etc. It just kinda drove me bonkers when my friend said her fav quilt was one that was a "cheater". :x Ah, to each their own.
