    I've bought from Walmart, Joanne's and LQS. Some of it was very good and some was garbage from all 3 places. Location of purchase is no guarantee of quality. You have to check the fiber content, feel the fabric and check the thickness.

    I buy fabric from our local Walmart and I also buy fabrics from online stores, at Joann's, the LQS(40 miles away), and a fabric store (20 miles away). This walmart has a ton of material to choose from, some is $6/yd, some $2.50/yd, some $1.50/yd. The flannel is nice, I've not had a problem with it. I usually stick with the feel, thickness, not buying anything I can see through. When I first began quilting I didn't know the difference in thread count, etc., I used anything cotton, lol. The $1.50/yard stuff fell apart with the first washing, so now I won't buy any of that, and I have to replace the quilt. Oh well, live and learn :D . Good luck!

    I was asked to make two quilts for a friends' grandchildren for Christmas. He purchased the material from Walmart. The Cinderella material was of very nice quality, and worked up nicely. The Transformers material had a rubbery feeling to it. It was a bugger to work with, the thread kept fraying and breaking, and I even had two needles break during the decorative quilting stitching. The material had been washed and dried, yet the rubbery -whateveritwas- remained. I agree that there is 'good' and 'bad' fabric, and what I purchase depends on what the project will be.

    I use a lot of Wal Mart fabric and they have all worked out very well. White on white is all very good quality and so is the cream on cream. A lot of their fabrics around here are good quality, some are a little thinner. Years ago some were actually a little too thick for quilts. All in all they are a lot cheaper than Jo Anns and I have found same pieces at Wal Mart and at Jo Anns and Jo Anns is much higher.
