One of our specialties is quilt backings. Today, the choices in color, prints, and quality have come a long way. At Ma’s, we have over 1400 widebackings for you to choose from. We carry cotton, flannel, and batik widebackings from Moda,
P&B, Westrade, Windham, Quilting Treasures, Marcus Fabrics,
A E Nathan, Benartex, Fabri-Quilt, Free Spirit, Henry Glass,
Paintbrush Studio, Andover Fabrics,
Robert Kaufman, South Seas, and Studio E… just to name a few! And we add to our supplier list as more companies see that we quilters want choices and variety!
Not only do we have a great selection, but we aim to save you money! Because we use widebackings, you can get a piece wide enough to use without piecing fabrics together. That means that you don’t have to square it after it is pieced, and you will not end up with that large a piece after squaring. You just saved yourself a lot of money that you can now go buy new fabrics for another project, plus the time you saved by not having to piece and square the backing!
When you purchase widebackings from Ma’s, they are squared when you receive them. We tear our backings on the straight of the grain, and they arrive at your door ready to be pined to the Longarm leaders. A few rollings back and forth on the leaders, and it is ready to behave for you or your quilter!
At Ma’s, we got your back… quilt back, that is!
