I had picked out some wide back fabric at Marshalls Dry Goods but by the time I went to order it, it was out of stock. Quilted Twins has similar colors that I want and their prices are comparable to MDG.


Many quilt shops buy from Marshall's. Marshall's is a fabric distributor and their main business is selling to quilt shops. Could be some of the fabric from there is MDG brand from Marshall's bought wholesale. Marshall's sells every brand but Moda. Marshall's have a lot of reps with clients all over.

Like Snooze, I too was disappointed. I had ordered backing fabric, now cut up and use when I practice FMQ. Quality was stiff and porous, not to my liking. When ordering the fat quarter bundles, again the fabric was coarse even after laundering. Maybe Iím too picky.

Suz, you aren't alone. I don't like their fabrics at all. I am picky though, I readily admit it.
I tried a couple of times but even name brands were rough. Maybe seconds, I don't know.

I ended up not ordering from them as by the time I was ready yesterday AM, they did not have the quantity of one of the fabrics I wanted. I ended up ordering from fabric.com. I've purchased from them previously and been happy with their fabrics. Hopefully I will be with these as well.

I have ordered from QT many times. Never a disappointment. Turn around time is lightning fast. I also order the color bundles and the prices are excellent. However!!!!!!! my stash does not need bolstering. I should be able to resist and shop in my own stash, but that has not been the case.

They are going to have the first of the post-pandemic auctions. I'll be able to sell three tops. They only take tops or hand quilted finished quilts.

I have ordered several times from QT and have always been happy. They do have name brands. Like all fabric stores quality can vary. Prices are good and service terrific. Check their Facebook page and watch their Ken and Rachel Show videos - fun in this pandemic time.

Same here. I have ordered and been very happy with my selections. I feel their prices have gotten higher also but....
