Default I love fabric shopping!

I am hoping DH will let me buy some fabric soon because I have enough picked out for 3 quilts and 2 receiving blankets while still have some leftover for my stash. It is under the limit he set. This is for maybe starting to sell some to 2 of my friends that have businesses and want some quilts and blankets.

I am shopping at MSCO and though I would like to go to JoAnn's too, MSCO has some good prices on yardage, most less than $10 on name brand so I just can't bring myself to go to JoAnn's and spend almost the same on a little lower quaility. What would you do?

When in doubt, quality should be the deciding factor. You can't go wrong with quality.

Thanks! I wish I could buy it all. lol Too many great designs to chose from.

I have 7 charm packs (patterns in mind for them), 1 Jelly Roll, and 13 yards of fabric picked out, all for under $200! Highest yardage is $9.95, the jelly roll is the highest but I have idea for it too.

Have you tried this site: http://www.quiltshops.com/ Since you already know what fabric you want. Just type in the name of the pattern plus the word SALE, and it will give you all the sites that have that fabric on sale at this moment. I never pay full price for my fabric. Granted there are also some sites out there like:
http://www.5bucksayard.com/
http://www.fabric4less.com/
http://www.fabricdepot.com/
http://www.quiltfabriccloseouts.com/
http://www.thousandsofbolts.com/
that are not at QuiltShops that have good prices also. So shop around and get your money's worth.

If y'all are on a strict budget, I'd firm up the selling offer, then buy fabric for and make those (or buy for one at a time, until that one is sold). Then I'd take my profits and buy the rest.

Not a strict budget, we just discuss purchases over $100 before we buy. And thanks sandybeach for the link, I will check it out.
