    One WalMart near me has fabric and I went there last weekend. I bought a lot of the Quilt Fabric of the Month. I think it was $2.46 a yard. It was so pretty. I stocked up on pinks, greens, blues, and creams in medium values. The feel of this fabric is soft, smooth and drapes great. Walmart sure messed up by taking the fabric dept. out of the stores.

    Your color choices will go with the 1930's retro fabrics very well. Any idea what you'll make yet?

    We have two W-M's within 10 miles of each other & the fabric dept in the one nearest me will be gone by March. I'm planning on going to the one further when I go for my eye exam last of Feb. Put out the word that they need to save me fabric, lots of fabric.

    The WMs in my area are all phasing out the fabric dept and we quilters are very disappointed. The last store went to 5o% off and there is little cotton left.

    Wow, $1 a yard for 100% cotton fabric? Geesh, if I wasn't buried up to my *** in snow and wind, I would drive the hour to my W-mart fabrics and see what the y have.

    I, too, added to my stash today. Wish I had your restraint!
    I got 21 1/2 yards for $23.00at my local W-Mart. Now my problem is deciding which of my new pretties I want to use first! (Did I go overboard?)

    Don't think you went overboard at all. You can't beat the price and hopefully everything will find it's way into a quilt.

    I too bought fabric at WM. I got about 40 plus yards over a 3 day period for 1.00 a yard, I think I got about 9 different colors and prints. I got some of the same prints and colors you got. The last time I went to WM my DH was with me. I picked up 2 bolts that were marked 1.00 a yard and asked him how much can I get, he said how much do you need and I said I don't need any of it I just want it. He just laughed and walked away, so I got 5 1/2 yards of each. the fabric was so pretty. I was like a kid in a candy shop.

    Gee, we must be mind readers. I was at Wal-mart just a few hours ago and stocked up also on the $1.00, $2.50 and the $2.44 a yard. I think the reciept showed 20 items.

    Are all the Walmarts loosing the Fabric Department? I know the ones in Sacramento, CA closed out their Fabric Department. We moved from there to Washington and the Walmart here in our little town still has a pretty nice selection of material and sewing supplies. I hope they do not close it out. It seems like it would make money for the store with all the quilters/sewing crafted people out there.I wonder what the reason is?

    I got the block of the month fabric for January last week. They were 1.00 a yrd also. In March (if there is any left) I will pick up all the 1.00 yrd fabric they have. Last week I think I got close to 50 yrds of fabric. Here is a pic of what I have started to make with my buck fabric. This fabric is not real heavy but it does have a good feel to it.
