    58" Wide fabrics

    http://www.fabricsgalore.com/catalog.php?cid=111

    I was recommended to this site by someone on this forum, to whom I am forever grateful. Before visiting this site I didn't know that you could get 58" width quilting fabrics! I know about quilt backing material but I find this size is so much more useful to me for the size of quilts that I make a lot of.

    A couple of my quilting ladies bought some yardage and made lovely reversible Christmas/Ordinary use tablecloths. I have a beautiful 2 yard piece of a lovely Burgundy tonal fabric that I will use to back a quilt as the size is perfect. And check out her prices !

    BTW "her" name is Carol and she is so helpful, she even contacted me when she was on holiday when I had a query, her services is fab.

    I knew about 55-60" quilting fabric, but it's really hard to find. Most of my quilts are 50 x 60 charity quilts, so the wider fabric makes backings so much faster. Thanks for the link - I'll keep it where I can find it again!

    I looked at the website, make sure to check that the fabric is 100% cotton if that's what you want. From what I saw there's more poly cotton blends in the wider fabrics.

    Never heard of them before. Their prices are great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
