Default Wide Quilt Backing

I am ready to finish 3 quilts that I have been working on and cannot find reasonable buys on quilt backing fabric. Anyone found a good place to buy nice quality backings? I did find one at Missouri Star Quilt that was a reasonable price but I have looked on lots of sites and not found a go-to source to depend on finding what I want without searching all over the web and local stores....which are few in my area. Help!

I have purchased many quilt backs thru Connecting Threads as well as Hancocks of Paducah. You can find some good prices on either site.

Thousandsofbolts.com has many wide backings at great prices. I've ordered from them several times.

I get mine at Marshalls Dry Goods. Since I shop them locally, I don't know the website.

FYI-I just watched Fons & Porter and the long arm quilter said to always over buy wide backs because they are not wound straight on the bolts. If they use a rotary cutter to cut the length you will end up with a wonky edge and by the time you straighten it, it might be too short for your top.

And be sure to prewash, dry and then measure. The backing I bought shrunk several inches in the width, so what started as 104 became 98.
