One time I was looking at a quilting mag and one of the featured artist was talking about her quilt (which was some kind of a replica of something in a museum and it was HUGE! )She could not find the right color of fabric for a part of it, but she went to a quilt show or class and saw the perfect color. She found out that the fabric came from Walmart so she bought a few bolts. My thought is if she is making this quilt that was huge and so important to her and she uses Walmart fabric then I can too!!!!So I have no problem using Walmart fabric!
