    Just got back from Target and bought 3 of the Queen flat sheets for $12 each. Perfect for quilt backings! 250-thread 100% cotton.

    I realized that I did a great job creating a huge stash of 2 yd or less fabrics but had no good backing options.

    I've been to Walmart and other places and this was the best deal hands down. Plus, the fabric is a good quality for the back of my quilts.

    Just wanted to let you all know while they're still in stock. Red, Brown, Tan, White, Black colors.

    i often use sheets for backing. I buy new and sometimes I find them at the thrift stores. My last quilt is backed with a sheet that was in pristine condition that I paid 1.00 for.

    Nice steal! $1 is amazing.

    Well, I haven't done it yet, but I got the idea here. :-)
    Then I went on the hunt and found the right quality for the right price. The colors are perfect for the fronts I have waiting.

    I found new in package a flannel sheet for $1. Made a warm snuggly quilt-I tell my grands "my Bink"!

    I haven't used sheets as a backing before, but I'm definitely going to check these sheets out at Target. How can you go wrong? Thank you very much for sharing. :thumbup:
