    All my jelly rolls come from Connecting Threads. Their fabric is the best, and very reasonably priced.

    I love their kits. I have 3 quilt tops ready to sandwich. I love their fabric quality! And their threads too!

    I love buying from their clearance section. Where could you buy good quality fabric for $2.48 a yard???? :)

    Don't worry about receiving a catalog from them ... you can go right to their website and see everything.

    I like to look at the 'clearance' items, especially fabrics and I click on lowest price in that little window ... I can't go look at it now, my puter isn't cooperating. Many of them are only $2.48yd.

    I've been purchasing from CT for about 7 years and love them.

    I just got my first order from CT and was initially very pleased. I bought an assortment of half-yard cuts, mostly the "Canning Day" line and some Civil War repros. A couple of the pieces were cut *exactly* 18", but several were cut much more generously, like 22"-- as though two different people were cutting my order. When I washed the fabrics, however, my opinion of them changed. They frayed much, much more than any other fabric I have washed. I got fray from between 1/4" to 3/8", and one blue print, seen on my hand in the photo below, frayed a full 1/2" on each cut end! That was one of the pieces that was cut to exactly 18", and it now measures 16.75" between the frays. Because of the other pieces that were cut more generously, I will not complain.

    I found the fabric quality a little coarse. I'm not sure if they intended that for the reproduction prints I ordered, as it does make them look more like real feed sack fabric.

    Overall, I'm not sure I will order from CT again.

    I just got my third order from them and have been really happy with the fabrics. If you got that much fraying, maybe try pinking the edges. I haven't ordered from that particular fabric line, only batiks and darker prints. Hope I don't get the same effect.

    I always serge my fabric if I'm going to wash it. It prevents any fraying, and only takes a few minutes.

    I used their charm packs to make quilts for Christmas. I did have some fraying on the edges, more than with Moda charm packs. But they have held up really nice. The colors haven't faded at all. I will continue to by from CT as long as I can afford to. I just know to be more cautious with the edges.

    I heard so many good things I ordered a few yards as a trial, and some thread in colors that I need for a landscape project. Can't wait until it gets here - maybe today!![/quote]

    You will love the threads.

    Wow - out all of the jillions of comments and subjects I have seen on this board - I think this is the first one I have ever seen to get 100% positive feedback. Going to have to try this place, too! :-)

    Sewbiz,
    If you are not happy with your fabric then contact,Connecting Threads.
    You need to let them know about the problem you are having,they can't do anything about it till you tell them.
