A great choice for quilters seeking a fabric with a lighter weight than a Quilters Only Solid. Made with a construction that uses a higher thread count of thinner threads, resulting in a looser weave. 68x68/30X30 = 136 threads per square inch and a thread thickness of 30.
I purchased the Indigo blue, Bright Royal Blue, and Tutti Frutti Pink. The end of the bolt said 43" wide (I even went back to check). After preshrinking these fabrics, the Indigo Blue was only 39" wide - a loss of 4". The other two colors were 41" wide. I had bought these fabrics with the idea of using them as backing for baby quilts (40" wide). What a disappointment. I will not be buying Country Classic solids again.
I used the lipstick red and it bled horribly. I realize it's a great deal for the price, but I'm not willing to sacrifice quality in a fabric for a great deal. I stick with Moda's Bella Solids or Marble Solids from now on. I've learned my lesson with poor quality fabrics from Joann's more than once.
I am overall happy with this fabric. It is a fair weight, easy care, etc. Just letting everyone know that "white" is NOT white, but quite off. Just sayin' :)
No you don't want to make a dress for your daughter's wedding or a quilt to pass down for generations to come. But you can't beat the price for say a test garmet before you cut into that $20 a yard fabric, or a everyday quilt for the children. Or play clothes, think what a pair of pants cost in rtw. I have used it for shopping bags using a med weight interfacing. If I want a perfect match I do not buy online.
I make baby quilts for charity and this is the best fabric for my projects. I use it for coordinates to various prints. Some of it will bleed/fade depending on the color. I use a color/dye retaining product with many of the colors, and have had great results. I ALWAYS prewash and dry them on hot, which also helps to set the dye and get them to shrink initially. Now come on, ladies......it's not $10 a yard fabric. It's really great for the price, and frequently it's on sale. I have used it for a long time and will continue to use it.

I hook rugs & had gotten a bolt of this fabric in the store. Well I ran out & thank god I kept the sku at the end of the bolt!! The color swatch on-line are nowhere near the real color as in cocoa it is a brown in real life on here it looks red! I do however prefer to purchase my fabrics at the store...
I received this fabric today and I could not believe the poor quality. If it were already in my stash of fabrics, I would have pulled it immediately to send to the flea market. I am returning it. I was also very disappointed that I was not given an option to cancel my order when so much of it was unavailable at shipping time. I was told that cancelling an order is not an option. I do not plan to use this method of shopping again. I have always found very nice quality merchandise at the Joann stores.
