Default Inexpensive cotton quilting fabric?

Well, I just happened upon this site (thanks to my husband) and asked
a question about a quilting program (looks like I will be buying the
EQ5!) The responses have been quite helpful, so I decided to ask all
of you where I can get good fabric at a great price? I look on Ebay
and see that I can get a FQ for $4.00, or fabric for $10.00/yd. I
know that I can go to JoAnn Fabric and get a FQ for $1.29, and fabric
for about $3.99/yd, but I don't always have the time with two children
and their choices in fabric leave a lot to be desired. I would
appreciate any suggestions of places online to buy fabric. Thanks so
much!

Good fabric, great price. That would call for you to check out
www.fabric.com. Not a huge selection, and their fabric is not always
wonderful (although they very sweetly will take it back and refund). Right
now they're having a Valentine special and will send you the whole place for
about $5 shipping (in the US) regardless of how much you order.
And a word of warning. They do lots of things to keep their prices down.
One time they shipped my fabric in a box obviously printed for a defunct
sausage company. It was printed: Sausage, perishable. Refrigerate
Immediately. Always helpful, my sweetheart quickly put my box in the deep
freeze. Gotta love 'em. Polly

Hey Polly,
is that how you hide all that stash you keep buying?

Hey Tess,
joanns aslo has a lot of cheap (omg you can see right thru it) thin fabric,
not always the best to use. the quality can make a big difference in the
finished quilt. not all their fabrics are like that though. if you know how
to tell them apart you'll be ok. iirc they also charge more for the better
quality, as would be expected.
sorry those sentences are out of logical order, brain is real hot and tired
after two full days on the road throwing flowers at people.
early night tonight for this little star*****

I love cottonboutique.com She has fantastic fabric at 6.75 yard. Not as
cheap as JoAnn's, but top quality. She and her husband are fantastic people
to work with. She just had a baby who she brought to guild on Thursday
night!

They do not have a brick and motar store. The closed it when she got
pregnant. They only deal with through the internet (they have been doing
this for years, only had the store for a little over 2 years)

Get on JoAnn's mailing lists. The snail mail flyer (once every couple of
weeks) contains a coupon for 50% off one item. The e-mailing list also

issues
coupons (some are only for on-line orders, though).
