    I'm currently making a simple "Millers daughter" quilt, or "stars through the window" depending on who you are...

    and for the first time, my local stores did not have the material I wanted or anything like it. (Here's a photo, I just think the animals are perfect for the window parts...)
    It is available from several Online places all for pretty much the same price.
    I feel so silly having never ordered fabric on line before, but I was thinking you all may have some good recommendations for better stores, or places to avoid...feel free to share personal experiences.

    Love Fabric.com- free shipping when you spend 35.00- very easy to do.
    Also great sellers on Ebay. I do a lot of my online shopping there. I make sure they have a good feedback score and now have a few favorites I always go to.

    I have had good experiences with fabric.com. Whatever site you may choose to use, be sure to first go to RetailMeNot, and see if there are any online coupon codes for the store. With a 30 second search, I saved $13.
    The only problem with online shopping is that it can become addictive. No more waiting for poor service. Makes me wish to never step into another crumby service Joannes again!

    Fabric.com BY FAR the best!!!! They sent me a lot of Kona I ordered a couple of weeks ago. Two of the colors had a chunk missing from them about a foot total. I emailed them and the very next day they called to say that they were going to send me 1 1/2 of each color again!!! That my friends is GREAT customer service. I ordered more Kona that same day;) I needed it;)

    Just go up to the top and put in your search topic. 120 quilt shops. I have had good luck finding fabric on this site.

    I really really love it. I tried really hard today to find something to substitute and decided i would just have to break down and get it. FUnny thing is that I don't think the recipient will be quite as charmed as I was by it. I may have to make another quilt out of it as well...

    I have ordered from Bear Paw Quilts and have been pleased with the service. I don't have a link bookmarked. I have found things there I couldn't find elsewhere.

    Connecting Threads is good, but they have their own fabric lines.

    Since it's a seasonal print... you could just save a few pieces and make a pair of pretty potholders for your kitchen. That gets you a souvenier, at least, and sometimes that's sufficient!

    Or you could make a second quilt!

    I spend way to much online shopping for fabric so I have a "few" favorites. Fabric.com is at the top, Over the Rainbow, The Quilted Castled, The Quilted B, Bug Fabric, Tennessee Quilts (pricey but they carry a good selection of Kaffe}, Fabric.com carries Kaffe also at a much better price. Stitches -n-Frames (?) always has a good sale going on Thursday's. I also shop ebay but the shipping eats your lunch. Fabric.com has free shipping on purchases over $35.00. A very nice touch. Oh and the Country Store has excellent prices. Usually under $8.00 a yard. So glad hubby won't see this post.

    I have ordered from many different stores on the internet. I have even ordered from ebay. I have been very pleased with all my purchases. Sometimes the color is not accurate on my computer.

    I love to shop at Stitch-N-Frame in Vicksburg, MS. online and also Crafttown in Salem,IN.
    Then I use the online search for fabrics when I know what I'm looking for too.

    That is so cute. I want some. I ordered and received quickly some giraffe fabric from a company that charged 4.50 per 1/2, I needed one yard only. They then charged 6.99 for shipping!!!!! Never again.
