    I've bought bolts from Marshall Dry Goods and always been satisfied.

    50 miles is close! My friends and I drive that far for lunch all the time. I wish I had a nice fabric store that close to me. Marhsall's is about 2 hours away and I go there when I need just a few yards. LOL.
    Got fabric?

    I grab them with coupons. There are some that I use over and over. Great to have handy for backings too

    Sorry, I'm 50 miles from the Illinois line. The Liberty fabric story is close to the OHIO line. Way more than 50 miles, at least a 100 and probably more. And not on any main roads for me.

    I do 50 miles easily-----------drove 45 miles to learn to spin last Saturday.

    You might try Hobby Lobby, also. They sell the Kona solids. I bet they would sell you a whole bolt & they have a 40% off coupon every week now. Never hurts to ask. The worst they can say is no. HeeHee!!! But, doubt they will.

    Overstock.com sells Pellon products by the bolt. Shipping is never more than $2.95, prices are reasonable and customer service is good. They offer coupons if you are on their email list. It's handy to have an entire bolt of Warm N Natural batting or Wonder Under in your stash.

    Just did a search on Mapquest and Pholar fabrics is ................................
    I-64 E to IN-3
    4 hrs 23 mins / 246.82 miles....................

    I didn't take into account that Liberty is almost due east of Indianapolis. I don't even like going to Indy. So, I'll hit Hancock's in Paducah---------100 miles closer.

    $2.95 would be a cheap shipping price for a bolt. Thanks for the info.

    I've never been to the Marshall's Dry Goods site. Good heavens! Do they have fabric or not! and a good price.

    They have "Tall cotton solids" no cream or white. Can't even find muslin here. What am I missing?

    I bought some offwhite for exactly the same reasons you mentioned...well, it was a tone on tone of white...at Joann's--a week that they didn't have their quilting fabrics on any sale at all, so I could use the coupon on the whole amount. I think I got 13 yards with the 40% off cpn since it counts as one cut of fabric even though I actually bought the last of two bolts.

    http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/c/...-Blenders-Bolt - great prices on blenders, between $55 & $60 for a 15 yard bolt!

    Here are a few. Put "quilt fabric by the bolt" in your search box and you will find many places that sell fabric that way.

    I buy muslin for backings at JoAnn's. You can use a coupon because it is "a single cut of fabric" Saves me a lot.

    Actually, I'd think any place that sells fabric would sell a bolt. Sometimes you can find whole bolts on the shelf---------specially things like backings and solids.

    IF ALL ELSE FAILS------buy whatever is left on a pretty full bolt. Hopefully with a coupon.

    I haven't have a chance to read all five pages, so apologies if I am repeating a recommendation, but you can get Moda's Bella Solids at fatquartershop.com and if you buy 15yds (a bolt) you get a discount, I think its 20% off. I think the thousandsofbolts.com website also sells Bella at a discount if you purchase 15yds.

    I like a moda white which I have purchased at Wooden Bridge in Kutztown, PA. I am not affiliated in any way with their business, just purchase quite abit of fabric from them. Not sure if they sell by a bolt.

    If you can order full bolts through your LQS you will probably have a better idea of the quality than if you order through Joanne. I don't have a shop but for me this has been true.

    I would be very happy to order full bolts of fabric for anyone who is interested, and give you a very nice discount! Since I'm in the business, I have access to at least 40 different manufacturers, so basically, if it's still in print, I can get it for you. PM me if you'd like to talk about it.
