    I was at our Wal Mart yesterday and didn't see any of the fabric marked down yet. I did buy some other fabric though. We don't have a very large selection to choose from.

    bkb, they moved across the street, but are still there, and a little more organized. Most cottons are still around $4 per yard.

    I found out this week at our Walmart that our will have fabric until later in the year when they do the remodel.
    They had a really pretty piece of fabric with Birds and fruit. It will be my new kitchen curtains. I just fell in love with that fabric. I will also paint the cabinets.

    somehow, remarkably, our fabric selection at our walmart is dwindling (as they upgrade to a stupid superwalmart) but yet the price stays at over 4 dollars a yard. Not worth my time to drive down there. I have never seen a fat quarter there, let alone a charm pack or jelly roll, so am totally jealous of all these deals you guys are getting! Good thing Joann's is closer....although...thier prices lately....

    When they get it remodeled, pre-cut fabrics is all you'll see. Ours has a couple jelly rolls and maybe some one yard packages and fat quarters. Not enough to even bother trying to find it.

    For the most part, I do like WM's new store layout but whoever is in charge of what to stock and how much is not doing a good job. The grocery aisle usually looks like the day after a blizzard. How can you run out of canned corn for Pete's sake?

    My Walmart hasn't added much new fabric for quite some time now and getting worried about it. Maybe they are getting ready for the fall and winter fabrics.

    Our Wally World dropped their 2.44 fabric to $2. Not much of a savings but I did get some good quality flannel for $2/yd. Kicked myself because two days prior I paid $2.59 at Joann's for lighter weight flannel.

    I was there yesterday and got over 20 yeards of fabric. The Batiks were on sale for $3.50 a yard!! Some of the fabric that was marked $2.44 a yard was actually $1 a yard (so I found out when it was being cut), but the lady didn't have time yet to put the sale price stickers on yet!... I got some great deals!

    I'm a little confussed about the Wal Mart fabric, Some board members say they like it and other say its a cheaper quality. I will admit that when I first started qting 10 or 20 ys ago the fabric I bought was not all cotton. but that was my mistake. I definatly would not make a blouse of it, but - if newbees are buying the wrong type of fabric, I would have thought that the older oops- more esperience Qter should help educate all beginners and nebees. I don't think I am explaining myself very well. Could someone help me out here.

    Let me see if I can explain my take on all of this. Wm fabric can be of poor quality but not all of it. You got to know what to look for. My family does not have much money so I can not afford to shop at the lqs, too expensive. I would never get a quilt made. I have bought many fabric's at WM that are tightly woven and some not. I will quilt with what I can afford, does it makes a quilt any less beautiful, I think not. I don't do any swaps because some ppl think WM fabric is not good enough. I do give fabric away to those that need it because I know that they will appreciate it no matter where it came from. We will always have a difference of opinion on what is the right fabric to use for quilting but I do not hold any offense against those that think different from me.
    I don't know if this helps or not but I tried.

    You just have to be aware of the your buying from any store is it 100% cotton. Walmart has had VIP at time and that is good fabric. I started at walmart over 15 yr ago and i bought the wrong fabric so my first quilts didn'y come out as well and they do now.

    I agree, you need to check the labels on WM fabric. After a while you can tell from the feel and texture of the fabric if it is 100% cotton or if it has some polyester/rayon in it. I can't afford LQS fabric either and more often than not buy what is on sale at a really good price, in the remnant bin, Red Tag stuff, have a really good coupon for or what I can find at the local thrift stores. I've sewn for close to 40 years and have gone thru stages of knits, corduroy, cottons, suiting, flannel, etc. After a while you just have the "feel" for what will work well in a quilt. Some of us are not lucky enough to have a client base with which to make money on our quilting skills. There is still just as much love and care in a quilt if it is made with WM fabric. ;)

    I buy Walmart fabric and really don't have a problem quilting with it. My grandmother quilted from the time she was a young girl until she was a "grandma" she used fabrics from old work clothes and dresses. I have two of those very old quilts and they are treasures. Nobody really spent money on fabric for quilts back then.
    My Walmart closed it's fabric department to enlarge their electronics department. I am very unhappy about this. It was the only place that I could go to get fabric without making a trip out of it. The closest place now is Joann's and it takes a good 45 to 50 minutes to get there.
