    Yes to NikkiLu and leighway. I've been to both and absolutely LOVE Whittle's and their staff as compared to Hancock's of Paducah.....Once you go to Whittle's they will be your favorite "go to place" for fabric and anything associated with your quilting habit. I love them; and go visit with them, and spend lots (to me) of money every time I go....Let me hear of your own experience when you do go.
    Make every day count for something!

    Whittle's sounds like my kind of place. You will get a whole lot of positive attention there Don. While other husband/significant others will be holding down chairs waiting for the ladies to finish shopping, you'll be right in the trenches shopping right next to them. Sort of the only rooster in the hen house. Enjoy and let us know what you bought. If you ever travel to the northeast, be sure you check out a Marden's store. It's quite an experience with the sheer amount of fabric and deep discounts.

    Yeah, another man quilter! Good luck Don. My partner is about your size and you are correct, a regular size lap quilt just don't cut it. Us big guys need big quilts. I made him foe Christmas a full size quilt for him to use as a lap quilt. One of these days ill get some pictures taken.

    my first quilt was going to be a lap size log cabin for my son. it somehow grew into a queen size quilt because i wanted him to be able to cover up while watching tv on his couch. it just kept growing and growing and growing. . . .
    Thank you Lord for Friends, Family, and Quilters

    Whittle's is not too far from Bowling Green, KY, home of Western Kentucky University! I love Whittle's. They do have a website, but their fabric is even less expensive when you visit in person! I live in Owensboro, about 75 miles from Whittle's-an easy day trip!

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Can I move there too. I want to go! I don't do well shopping for fabric online. Actually we are very lucky we have many, many LQS to choose from..
