Is there anyone out there that is looking on this site for great quilting websites other than little me? I love reading the reviews but I'm looking for materials at a good price to quilt .
Hello out there.

Have you been checking the classified ads here? I have found some really lovely fabrics being sold by members there.
If you mean like muslin for backing ...Hobby Lobby now has online shopping & their prices for muslin are very good IMO, plus you can use the weekly coupons too & usually shipping is free if over $25.00 purchases. I hope this helps.
I like to quilt too...but just basic basic quilts. I started using cotton thread for it & find it has a finer stitch...what about you what thread are you using?
Thanks for writing in....nice to hear from you....

Are you looking for quilting websites? I used to hang out on the forums at quilting.about.com - lots of block and fabric exchanges there and a lot of members with great expertise. I'm sure there are tons more out there - I suspect there are a lot more quilters than garment sewers, at least based on the magazines available on the newsstand.

Thanks so much for replying back. I live in On.Canada but there is a Hobby Lobby in NewYork near one of my relatives,so I'll check it out . About using cotton threads, I love using Aurifil. They are strong ,colours great,and very little fuz balls that occur under the throad plate.

Thanks Laura . It's hard to find reputable websites that I could buy fabrics for quilting. So, I will check out quilting about com and spend q couple hours there. I wish there was a site like patternreview jusy for quilters. But, this site is one of the best don't you think so.

Yes. You should be deeply ashamed and embarrassed. Say 100 Hail Marys daily for a year and sew yourself a veil. You MIGHT be forgiven.

Hahahahahaha---that is so funny.

Kitchen Cook, we have mostly garment sewers here, but also some quilters and comedians. I would imagine that it would be a lot easier to find quilting sites than sewing ones as has been mentioned. There used to be a lot of sewing shows on TV; now it seems that all are quilting ones, even Sewing With Nancy. :(

Do a Google or Yahoo search for them.
