    Hello, all. Was in my local Walmart yesterday and I always go down the aisle of "precut fabric" they now sell. Well, there was a sign on the whole section that everything was half-price. It was basically $5 for 7 FQ, $5 for a charm pack, $5 for 2 yard matching fabs (1 yard of each), $8 for 3 yards of 108" for backing. Well, I put several things in my cart because it was such a deal. I got to the checkout and guess what......they all rang up at half off the sale price. So, the FQ, charms, 2-yd pack all cost me $2.50; 3 yards of quilt backing was $4. Woo-hoo!! I'm going back today to get more backing. It's solid muslin type, white, beige, gold; but it will certainly work for me.

    If I was closer I would be racing you to the fabric isle. That truley is a steal on those backings. What are you waiting for GO GET EM!

    I did the same thing at my Walmart on Sunday
    4.00 for quilt backing is great - I got the tea dye muslin
    two of them, plus tons of solid colors in 100 per cotton Rita Faye

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I've got to go to Wally World to pick up a couple prescriptions-----I WILL LOOK.

    A few days ago, I went down that aisle and a bunch of stuff had been thrown into a cart as if they were going to do SOMETHING!

    Mine did the same thing even cheaper but not for long.
    The price is back up again.
    I did talk to an employee who was in the area and the fabric dept. will be back after the end of the month, hooray.
