Has anyone here seen the fabric yardage at IKEA? They have precut, packaged, 100% cotton 47" x 118" in several kiddie patterns for 7.99. Since I'm doing charity quilts, 1 piece will do either 2 quilts or a front and back. I think it would be good to add borders. I also found single flat sheets, twin size for only $4.99 and I'm seriously thinking of using some for backings. IKEA quality is quite nice. I didn't buy any today, but I will definitely go back. Here's a few links so you can take a look.

In case you think I actually neglected to buy something, let me assure I did not neglect that responsibility! I bought a little piece of table top for .99 to put under my cutting mat since it's on a sort of wobbly table. IKEA has an "as-is" room and they have table top pieces!

I also went to Ben Franklin (Kannapolis, NC), where they had the 3.99 flat folds on sale for $2.47/yd. and all the Moda fabrics for $5.87. How bad was I? Not that bad... only spent $50

I have a huge piece of chartreuse/black and white fabric from Ikea that is going to be an almost whole cloth quilt. It's on my short list.

Wow...I didn't know Ikea had fabric. I'll be near one on Friday, hopefully I'll get a chance to stop in and check it out.

Thanks for the info! :thumbup:

Too far for me to travel also - over 2 hour drive.
Good to know though.

Never thought to look at Ikea. I love that store ever since I was in Germany and now I am so glad there is one a couple hours away. Makes for a great day trip. I also try and go to Mary Jo's which is not that far away for Ikea so I can do both in one day. Thanks for the tip.

I don't remember fabric in the IKEA store near San Fransico I was in a year ago. Is this something new &/or do all their stores have fabric. Will have to check it out next time I'm that way.

Sorry, I don't know the answers to your questions. The IKEA in Charlotte is fairly new. I found fabric both in the children's area and the textiles area. Some of it was heavier decorator type fabrics, but they had so much that I'll take the time another day to look through it carefully.

WOW! Thanks, I didn't know that they carried fabric. Sounds like I may be taking a trip in the near future. :P
