Forgive me for this being a long post but I am just curious. When making charity quilts where do you purchase your material? If you belong to a guild do they tell you to buy at lqs and not to buy material at a specific large retailer? I belong to an organization that makes charity quilts and we were told to buy the material at either a lqs or a specific retailer. While I understand they don't want fabric that looks and feels "cheap" I think that if I am going to buy the material for a quilt to be donated I should decide where I should buy. I would love to shop at the lqs store but times are tough and I can't afford to buy at a lqs. What are your opinions on this subject?
