What's the best place to get wide quilt backing? I need to get backing for LOTS of quilts. I need coordinating colors and white ones. Does someplace online sell blenders type fabrics in the wide width?

It's a little pricey but here's a site.
JoAnn's sells muslins that are 90-120" width and so doe the Hancock Fabric store if you have either one of those near you. I'm sure a local quilt store would have 90- 120 widths also.
Hope this helps.

Joanns has a new line of backing at $9.99 and I like it's great to get it at 50% off too. I posted it once so check my post to see samples.

Try thousands of bolts. They have a great selection - good prices too.


They are listed in the Quilt Backs sections with WIDE in the description.

JoAnn's also has some other wide backing fabrics...great when using your 40% or 50% coupon. I just bought some to make some curtains for my daughter's new kitchen. And JoAnn's has the Kona muslin in wide widths. I was there yesterday and my store was out of the bleached (which I wanted) but had the unbleached. The lady at the checkout said her mother is an expert quilter and recently completed her a beatifully quilted wholecloth quilt using the wide Kona muslin. She said she gets it after her mother enters it in the Ohio state fair.

There was a recent (this week) thread about using sheets for quilting. There were recommendations for what types to use for backing (avoid the high thread count as too hard to quilt). Also, Klue said she uses flannel sheets as backing for utility quilts.

Keepsake has 104 inches for 13.92 and 108 for 14.96. This is about 2 1/2 times wider than ordinary fabric and looks to be very reasonable.

Over the Rainbow and Marshall Dry Goods have a variety. I have ordered from both, but not the backing (yet, but will be as soon as I finish my tops). Marshall Dry Goods has a variety of widths from 90"-118" I think.

(edited to correct size to 118" - sorry, not wearing my glasses) :)

Fabric Depot has prints and blenders and solids I believe. Right now there is a 25% off sale. The 25% is taken off when you place the item into the sales cart.

Their backing is 108- 118 inches wide as is $10.40 or less a yard on sale

I just found this site, there are many quilt backs here. I've never ordered from this one, the prices seem on the high side, but I bet it is really nice fabric. http://www.christianlanequilters.com/widebackings.html
