    ladies, keep your eyes open at any closeout and salvege stores in your area. Here we have Hudsons Treasure Hunt and Hudsons Dirt Cheap. On 2 occasions I have found craft departments from Wal-marts in the stores VERY cheap. When they close they have to do something with the stuff, so keep an eye out in your area.

    Hi Julie - about those purple excavators....I read on www.thequiltshow.com boards about one quilter who wanted to make a "farm" quilt, but could only find red tractors & the 'giftee' was a dyed-in-the-wool John Deere man! So she found the right color fabric paint & changed 'em to green! Maybe that would work for yours :wink:

    I was at our Walmart last night, they got in one and two dollar Quilt fabric, so I picked up some, Not as much as I would like to get , but I'm happy. Just keep buying when they have it. Our store said they would have pre cut packages of fabric........if they do I hope it is reasonable.
    anyone seen it this way?

    I haven't seen any like that, Ruth but that is how I was told our walmart's fabric would be...not sure that I would want to buy it prepackaged where you can't actually look at it though.

    I went to our Super Wal Mart today for something totally different and found 3 1/2 yds of flannel for $2.00 a yd. I know some of their other stuff is "iffy" but the flannel has always been pretty good. Its great for the backing on baby quilts which is what I love to do. The rest of it was full price but this was the end of the bolt which didn't matter to me. I'll just add it to my stash for now. Can't ever have too much fabric! :D

    Regarding the pre-packaged fabric, last summer I bought a package of fabric at Wal-mart for a baby quilt. I wasn't impressed with it. After I got it home, I learned it was very, very thin, almost see-through. I bought it because I needed a baby quilt quickly. The fabric was already co-ordinated so I just grabbed the package and bought. I think it was about $12-$15. Made a good size quilt, about crib size. I backed it with flannel for some substance. But I wouldn't buy it again. Much prefer the bolts of fabric, where I can feel it to see if it fits my needs.

    i'm with you on the need to see and feel for myself. now that our WM has downsized, i've been driven to shopping online for fabric. nearest anything else is an hour away.

    i don't worry much about ordering from Joann. but the "local" hancock carries everything from decent quality to junk. you'd have to be just as careful there as at WM - and pay higher prices. i'll give their online operation a shot at my business one of these days. i'm really hoping that when i get around to ordering from thousandsofbolts.com it turns out to be decent stuff. (haven't actually started a shopping cart there yet. they have sooooooooooo many things i want, i'm afraid i wouldn't stop. LOL)
