    I seem to always be in need of wide backing. Where you you buy backing at a reasonable price?

    I bought 108 inch at JoAnn's $6.95/yd. Used 50% off coupon. Or thrift store sheets.

    I used to buy at JoAnns, but a of late it is of lesser quality, and all of the needle holes showed through! I would try the online source of purplemem.

    Check out www.fabric.com. They always have good prices on their quilting fabrics; a wonderful company to deal with.

    I have had batting pokies on Joann's backing too. I use regular quilt shop sale fabric or fabric I buy from www.thousandsofbolts.com . I just sew 2 or 3 lengths together. It's only a seam or two!

    I always look up sale fabrics at my LQS, or sheets!
    Sheets only because the cost is to much lately. I had a customer spend $81 for a backing... that is a lot of $$$

    This is where I buy mine - the blenders. If you figure it out $7.99 for 108" yard works out to less than $3/yard.

    widebacks.com;
    fabric.com
    the lqs
    hobby lobby
    connecting threads
    bearpaw quilting
    the list goes on and on...
    i buy each back individually when the top is done and i can decide what i want to use for the back. i prefer fabric.com...i can even buy extra wide white flannel and dye my own backing when i want to.
