    I found some beautiful fabric at a nearby Walmart yesterday morning. It is part of the quilt of the month for May fabric line. On the selvage it had David Textiles. I could not find anything to suggest it was less then the quilt shop quality cotton. It feels, cuts, and sews better then the Moda fabric I have. The fabric clerk told me not many Walmarts carry the quilt of the month fabric with free quilt pattern every month. She said it was ordered separate from a buyer that contacts the store fabric manager. It's up to the fabric manager if the line is carried in the store if the store sells fabric. The fabric dept manager at this store is a quilter! I think that makes a big difference in how profitable the fabric sales are. Most of the craft/fabric managers have no interest, just doing a job.

    Is it the English Garden pattern? I got that one as a fabric group of the month May 2010. I also got the last piece of fabric #3. I bought extra of each material as "you never know". If not needed for the quilt top, it builds the stash. So far the Walmarts in my area carry a small collection of fabric but I also have a Joann's Superstore and Hancocks within driving distance.

    Can you post a photo so I can see what it looks like? I guess this teaches me not to be such a Walmart snob.

    My camera is giving me a white screen. I guess it's a goner. :thumbdown:
