I was really surprised to see that there wasn't a thread in here for shopping recommendations (at least not that I could find).

Right now I'm looking to buy a fat quarter bundle (30-36) and was wondering if anyone had any sites they could recommend.  I've done some google searches and there are tons of sites that sell them, but it is always nice to have the word of someone who has used a site before.

I've only purchased fabric online once, and it was at Fabric.com.  I ordered some chiffons, and they came quickly and were a good quality.  I would definitely buy from them again.

I have used Etsy and I also have bought fabric from Connecting Threads.  They have great prices.  I've bought fabric from EBay, too.

I've used etsy, ebay, and fabric.com and had good results with what I got.  However, if you're ever in Maine, you should checkout a place called Marden's.  It's an odd lots type of place, but TONS of quilting fabrics.  Not top quality, of course, but more Joann's Fabrics' grade at really cheap prices.  I've gotten some great bundles there (enough for a baby quilt) for as little as $5.99

I highly recommend Fat Quarter Shop, too! 

I also shop online at Pink Chalk Fabrics, Burgundy Buttons, and Green Fairy Quilts

Also from Maine... the Marden's in South Portland is a lifesaver.

I love, love, love, Fabricworm.com and they're on etsy too. Great FQ bundles and fast shipping. They also have the great Japanese fabrics that we don't have in the South.

Also recommend fatquartershop.com!

I did equilter once, too, but their website drives me bonkers.

I also bought fabric from the Rushin' Tailor quilt shop & liked it, but it was for Alaska fabric for a 50 state quilt swap.

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

What kind of FQ bundle are you looking for? I suppose it depends on what you want the FQs for. If you're just looking for a few FQs that go together well (maybe you need a certain color) there's a place that lets you buy groups of four coordinating FQs. They call them "Quilters Quartets" and they have regular prints, batiks, and metallic blenders.
