    Does anyone on the board know where to get really good deals on quilting fabric by the bolt (sort of wholesale price, but not for a business)?

    I think you get 40% off when you buy a whole bolt at Fabric Depot in Portland - probably also applies to online sales.

    Thanks. I just called them and they do offer for bolt price like you said 40% but on the regular price only and the shipping they charge the actual cost so they have to process it first and quote you for the shipping.

    Yes, Marshall's sells by the bolt, if you have a tax number, you can purchase wholesale.

    If you use a 50% off coupon at JOANN'S on a bolt it makes it affordable. I purchase muslin, white and natural, thermolam or warm and natural etc.

    It seems to vary. Alot of calicos at JoAnns are 8 yds. Flannel is more.

    Most quilting cottons come on 15-yard bolts (give or take a couple of yards).

    I buy all of my bolts here
    http://fabric4less.com/
    Great prices, they are right there in LA, so shipping would be very little to you! They will quote shipping for you on the phone before you place an online order. The shipping estimator on their site doesn't ever seem to work for me. The ship very quickly and just for an idea of what it runs, to ship to MT; one bolt is $10, two bolts are $14 and three are $16.....great place!

    When you buy fabric for backings, whether it's the wide one, or bolts, how do you decide what to buy if it's for quilts not yet made? Do you stay with neutral?

    Well, I think each person has a general color palette, or style, even if each quilt is very different.

    For me, neutrals aren't in it. ;) At all.

    So if I found some fabulous lime green or purple fabric, preferably on sale, I'd pick up 6-7 yards for a backing. And I like pieced backings, so if it's not enough, I can always build it up, either with leftover fabrics from the actual quilt top- you know, when it finally gets made in 2015 :roll: - or with other fabric in my stash.

    If someone is into all those Moda/Amy Butler/Art Gallery collections, for instance, a backing from one can easily work on a quilt top done with fabrics from a different collection. Or maybe Thimbleberries are your thing. Same concept.
    I'm in the brights, saturated color camp. So I know I won't need the Thimbleberry fabric. Ever. ;)

    No. But, when it happens and a quilting store is going out of business, they offer some pretty good deals. That's how I got a lot of my stash.

    Do a search online for wholesale fabric and it will bring up a list you can start checking out.

    There are a few good ones online but don't have that with me right now.
