I love that place but it can be so overwhelming sometimes.  i just recently made a trip there to buy beaded fabric for my sister's wedding dress.  I go there to buy fabric for costumes as well.  Its always like three fabric stores exploded in one warehouse though.

There was a little girl who had a little curl...

Does this store have a good selection of quilting cottons?

I am new to the city and I'm looking for a good quilting fabric store. Textile Discount Outlet is closest to my house so I'm most interested in going there. I am also planning on checking out Vogue Fabrics and The Needle Shop. I thought about going to Quiltology, too, but, after reading some reviews that mention their high prices and small selection, it doesn't appeal to me all that much.

Any suggestions for quilting fabric stores will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I would call Quiltology's selection tightly edited.  It's small, but the most modern collection you will find, and a nice space.  Other options are Fabrics Etc in Elmhurst at York and 290, or Quiltfabric.com has a retail location in Willowbrook at 75th and Rt 83.  Pieceful Heart is a large shop in Lisle, I think.  You won't find quilting cottons at Vogue, but you should check it out anyways.  The quilt shop in Palatine just closed.  There are a variety of Joann and Hancock stores.  That, unfortunately, is about it.

I'd like to know if Textile Outlet has quilting cottons, too.

Lol, i just called Textile Outlet. How simple!

I talked to Steve and he said their quilting fabrics are very, very limited because quilters like 100% cotton. I asked him for a suggestion of where to get quilting fabrics in town and he suggested Vogue, either downton on Roosevelt or in downtown Evanston.

ETA: I called Vogue downtown and the person I talked to wasn't too encouraging. She said we have cotton fabrics and that you'll have to browse around for them. They do sell batting and thread for quilts, she mentioned.

I love it so much I get boxes of fabric every time I go I highly recomend it and if you go to art school they will give you major discounts

I know this is an "older" post; but if you are looking for quilting fabric and have transportation, come south down I55 to Weber Rd, then go south about 5 miles to Roberts Sewing Center in Crest Hill.   I'm not a quilter, but have been there a few times and their selection is fantastic.
