Marden's during their Christmas in July sale, and I liked it so well that I bought the rest of the bolt, which totaled 13 yards. I figure I might get backings for at least 3, maybe 4, quilts from that piece.I thought this backing was just perfect for the quilt. It looks like it could be part of the same collection, but it was from a different manufacturer. I found it at
Marden's Surplus and Salvage is a locally owned and operated chain of stores around Maine. Most of the stores have fabric departments consisting largely of quilting cottons. They have some other fabrics, like flannels, upholstery, fleeces, things like that; but the majority of it is cotton, and the prices are unbeatable. If you're ever up this way, be sure to stop by a Marden's. There's a list of locations on their website.
