    I'm making a quilt for my daughter for Christmas. Which on-line site has the best prices? I checked JoAnn's out and they were high and not much of a selection.
    Thanks in advance!

    Try connectingthreads.com or Roberta sells batiks on the board. Do a search.

    Roberta is bob---- on the board, she has the best prices you'll find, connecting threads is a good price, I don't know the quality, I just ordered some. Batiks are very high.

    I noticed connecting threads has a sale. Never ordered before, but I've heard their quality is good.
    Thanks!

    I have some from Connecting Threads and some from Roberta. CT is a bit cheaper but Roberta's are better quality.
    I do like CT though, just telling you my opinion.

    The ones from Connecting Threads are nice. Also, if you're looking for the brand names at decent prices, Seawatch Fabrics has good prices and free shipping (and quick too) for orders over $30. http://www.seawatchfabrics.com/

    The ones from Joann's are nice, but overpriced at regular prices. Not bad if on sale or you have a coupon. But they don't have as much variety.

    I just got some batiks from Connecting Threads. The colors are beautiful and true to the pics online and catalog. But they're thin. I like to work with batiks because of the stiffness; these are not stiff. I don't know if I can mix them in with other batiks I already have. What do you all think?? The prices at CT are good and service is always good. I'm just disappointed in the quality.

    I highly recommend Roberta on the board - her board name is Bob1414. She has very high quality batiks at a very reasonable price. She is great to work with!

    Thousands of Bolts always has LOTS of batiks , you may want to use the search tool on the site , since there really are Thousands of bolts. Very good prices. I order quite a bit from them. All of the top manufactures and Good service .
