Just a quick question - does it make more sense (economically) to buy 108'' backing, or more yardage of 45'' for larger projects?

 I have a pre-paid account in which 45'' bolts costs $4.95/yd at a local shop, but I've never priced the 108'' cotton/flannel before.

I personally find 108 easier to use when doing a large quilt because I don't have to piece it.

honestly, it depends on the price of the backing, as well as your ultimate design for the quilt. I find it easier to work with, certainly, as I don't have to be quite as fastidious about my basting.

Alright - thanks guys- I hadn't even thought about the ease of using the larger cut of material at this point (..it's a friday, that's for sure. Smiley )
