    I’ve purchased wide backing from Thousands of Bolts. Here’s a link to Backside Fabrics. I haven’t purchased there but they seem to have a good selection.

    Connecting Threads have good prices, frequent sales. Not a very wide variety ... but good value! I'm in Canada, and shipping is very reasonable. Customer service is great.

    There is a lady who sells beautiful 108" wide backings for $8 a yard. She's on SewItsForSale on Facebook. Her name is Marylyn L Boughan Jones. You can search for her posts in that group.

    I just bought some from Quilted Twins. https://www.quiltedtwins.com/backing It is beautiful and good quality and they have a good selection. You'll see the same backings on other sites for a lot more money. I also like Connecting Threads for backing, but the selection is not that good.

    I ordered recently from fabric.com and was very pleased. Color was as it appeared on my monitor and shipping was quicker than what was originally stated. I'll go there again.

    KeepsakeQuilting.com has several extra wide backing fabrics. I've also purchased some at Hobby Lobby. The woman at Hobby Lobby said they're going to begin stocking a wider variety of 108" wide cottons.

    I purchase 98% of my wide backing fabrics from fabric.com
    they have a large selection, good prices and a free shipping price point I can always meet. I’ve been shopping with them for 20 years , their customer service has always been good, very few problems over the years (3-4 in 20 years) problems were always solved/ fixed/ handled quickly and cheerfully.

    I usually get mine from Hobby Lobby. I can see actual color and feel it.

    I get most from Amazon, which is usually Fabric.com or Hancock’s of Paducah.

    I get all of my 108 inch from Marshalls the quality is good and I love the choices that are available and at $7.99 a yard you can't beat it.

    I get mine from my one of the stores in Amish country, Shipshewanna, Indiana. No help for you but for me a hour drive 3 or 4 times a year is worth having a marvelous large selection of wide backing. One of my LQS also has a moderate sized selection that is growing as more of us request this fabric. You have so many web suggestions to investigate. Have fun making choices.

    Alternatively, you can get a good quality cotton bedsheet in a suitable size from the usual sheet sources (department stores, websites etc.) - I wanted plain fabric for my backing, so that's what I did!

    I've gotten from backsidefabrics.com and have had very good experience. They send free swatches, too. I usually get about 10 free swatches and then decide which I like best and order from them.
