    I have been checking Joann's but most of the fabrics are listed as delicate in the details. These are supposed to be quilt fabrics. I really don't understand. I want to make a baby quilt so I don't need delicate. I am thinking turquoise and browns with embroidered little cowboys. Does anyone know where I can find some pretty prints online?

    Here is where I get ALL my fabric from except for a few panels that I get from another shop. This is my local quilt store but they ship anywhere.

    There are LOTS. I've shopped at fabricdepot.com, fatquartershop.com, fabric.com, connectingthreads.com, I can't remember them all!

    I buy a lot from connecting threads and if you check the clearance kits they always have a few baby quilt. I've also bought from fabrics.com

    One of my favorite places is http://www.equilter.com/
    I've always been pleased with what I order from them. I spend way to much time looking at this site.

    When you say that Joann's says "delicate", are you referring to the washing instructions at the bottom of the fabric descriptions? If so, then I would kind of take that with a grain of salt because I have made a ton of baby and donation quilts with fabric from Joann's and some of them have been washed about a billion times in a regular wash load with no problem.

    If you are looking for better quality fabric, though, there are so many places online...my favorite is Fabric Shack, and their shipping is only $2.50 for under $75.00. I swear I order from that place once a week.

    if you look in the "links & resources" section, there are usually posts announcing online sales events
    OR
    you can use search feature at the top of the page!
    type in "online fabric shops"

    have fun!

    stitch-n-frame.net there is a weekly "thursday special" that offers deep discounts. I've been buying from her for years and have had only really good experiences.

    I've never shopped for fabric online before.I had a bad experience with ordering clothes online and I guess it's scared me off. I don't really need to anyway.The fabric shop I go to is local and I take my pattern with me. That way I'm supposed to buy only what I need for that quilt.But we quilters all know that doesn't happen.Once you walk in there and see all the pretty colors,you always walk out with enough for at least 5 or 6 quilts.I think it would save me money to shop online,but it would break my fabric shop's heart. There's always at least 6 of us quilters in there overbuying at the same time looking at each other's patterns and talking"quilt"talk.My daughter swears that a different language than english.

    are the material colors pretty close to the color on the computer screen and is this vendor good to deal with.
