    http://www.fabric.com/SearchResults2...3-26a376046a5e I wish I had seen this site, they have the really nice minky. Some of the more solid multicolored are on a white base, so the color doesn't go all the way thru the fabric. The embossed, dots, diamonds, cuddle and white with colored spots are great to work with.

    If you have a iphone, there is a Joann's app that is pretty cool. You can get all your coupons there on the phone and don't have to print them out. They either scan them or punch in the number. Works great. Not sure about other smart phones but they may have it too.

    My JoAnn's accepts Hobby Lobby coupons. Go to Hobby Lobby and print it out. This week it's not a generic 40% off but they have them quite often. You can have the HL flyer with coupon sent to your email.

    Go to the JoAnn's site for coupons too. There are lots this week.

    Good Luck.

    Be careful with the JA's look like minky. Some of it cannot be put in dryer.

    I have never used Minky, is it hard to handle? and any pointers on sewing or cutting it would be great. When it is cut does it shehd around the edges and can you use a staight stitch on it?

    Minky can be very messy, the LQS recommended using a seratted blade in my rotary cutter and that helped with the mess. It is stretchy but I adjusted after the fabric was sewn together. Some of my minky (minkee) I bought off the internet

    I have seen many references to Minky lately and have tried to figure out what it was. An earlier post to this string indicated it was like fleece, then I a post that warned about getting real "Minky" so it didn't shrink. What is "real Minky" and is it labled that way or is this a quilters label? Do you use it for the back of regular cotton tops?

    I never buy it with out my Joann's coupons. Same story with chenille. If you are not on their mailing list you can sign up on line and I think you get an immediate coupon. Can always check just inside the door at the store as well to see if they have any flyers left.
    Their flyers that they have at the door don't have the extra...coupons that come on the mailer. It's the same way with Hancocks.

    Joann's is having coupon commotion this week-there are 2 for 40 percent off and 1 for 50 percent.

    I used the "cheap" minky from JoAnn's and regretted it. I thought it would be nice to have the soft bumpy texture on the front so I pieced it with flannel. I pressed the bumps right out of it. I was so disgusted. I was told, after the fact, that you need to use a half inch seam allowance. Also, afterward, I checked the washing instructions and saw that you cannot put it in the dryer.
    This might be a different story if you bought quality fabric from a quilt shop.

    remember you are getting 60", so you have a lot more fabric.

    I found some minkee at this site. http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/ca...aspx?TypId=743
    On the bolt (15 yards) it is $7.66/yard for the muchie minkee. It is $8.50 if you only want 1+ yards. The other types are more expensive.
    This site also has batik at $5.50/yard. Also Blenders for $5.50/yard.

    Quilt in a day has some on sale

    This is some that I bought and really like it. The hounds tooth Shannon seems to be a different color when the light hits it. Makes it very pretty and interesting.
