I find that many quilters are turning to find deals on fabric whereever they can, like JoAnn's or even Walmart.

The fabric shops, a lot of the material is upwards of $9 to $10 a yard now. I can remember back when my grandmother was teaching my sister and I to sew, the material was $.57 a yard. We thought it was outrageous when it hit $1.00 a yard.

What do you pay in the UK?

Its minumum 8 ($12) a METRE in my LQS. And that is for plain, no pattern, no brand, non designer cotton fabric.

1 metre is 1.09 yards

Wow, I guess that does make it expensive for a hobby.

You must save all your scraps too?

I have gone out into my own designs and am trying to do some art quilts from my photographs.

What kind of quilts do you like to make, traditional? art?
