Did you know that Connecting Threads now carries coordinating backing fabric?  That’s right, we recently added the option to two of our most popular collections: Symphony of Blues and Charlottesville

We are really excited about this new offering and are hopeful that it will make your life a little easier! The fabrics come in 104″ widths and are priced at just $11.96/yard. 

You can find the fabrics on our site in two different ways.  First, if you go to either the Symphony of Blues or Charlottesville product pages and right under the individual fabrics section, you will see the backing option under the header Coordinating Backing Fabric | 104″ Wide

Another easy way to find the backing is through the Browse all fabric by option. You can find this option in the left hand side of the fabrics page. Click on the button that says “Subject”, then click on “Backings”. The menu as it appears on the site is below.

To celebrate this new product offering, we are giving one lucky person 3 yards of the backing fabric of their choice.  All you need to do to enter is tell us which backing fabric you would like to receive – Symphony of Blues or Charlottesville by 11:59pm on Sunday, January 22nd.  We will pick our winners on Monday, January 23rd.

Rules: One entry per person.  No purchase necessary.  To be qualified to win, you must have a mailing address in the US or Canada. You must provide us with a valid email address so that we can contact you if you win.  Contest ends 11:59 pm on Sunday, January 22nd.

    Sorry, you will have to erase my last entry since I didn’t follow directions…I would choose the Charlottesville. Thanks!
    That is so cool! I really love CT fabrics, especially the solids. I am making the Sew Happy Geek Quilt Along sampler with all Connecting Threads solids in aqua, tomato, white, and ash. It looks great!

    Love the new symphony of blues line. I’ve gotten into the habit of buying all my backing fabrics from CT! I just finished a large quilt using your jubilee line!

    I would love symphony of blues backing, it would be perfect for my blue/ yellow quilt that I want to make soon. Also thanks for getting in the wider fabrics, I love having backing available and that it is CT fabric is just icing on the cake.

  7. Kari Says:
    01/17/2012 9:40 am

    Both are good basics, but I would pick Symphony of Blues. I see some potential to use it’s patterns as a guide for free motion quilting.

  8. Pam Says:

    The Symphony of Blues is my favorite of the two. I just found a bag of fat quarter from CT dating……..2003!

    Looks like everyone else is choosing Symphony of Blues, but I’m going to be different. I’m working on a Farmer’s Wife Quilt-a-Long and I think the Charlottesville fabric would be perfect for the backing, so I’m choosing it!
    Thanks for the chance to win CT fabric. I have used a lot of it and the quality is great!

  10. Regina Says:

    What a great idea – and a great price too! Of course I shouldn’t be surprised – it’s from Connecting Threads after all. I would love to win the Cobalt Scroll from the Symphony in Blues collection. I think this would be a great quilting design to use for the finished project.

    I would LOVE to win some of the Symphony of Blues backing. I just adore the color blue and am simply weeding out a little of my stash to make room for some of this line to make myself a quilt. :)
    Even if I don’t win, I have to say how thrilled I am that you now have wide backing fabric. I love your standard width fabric, the quality is top notch and the hand is fantastic. I would use your wide backing for all my projects if I could! :)

  80. Deborah Wright Says:

  153. Teri Says:
    01/17/2012 5:06 pm

  181. Andrea Clapp Says:

  182. Sue Heinlein Says:

  190. Marcia Says:
    01/17/2012 8:03 pm

    01/18/2012 3:50 am

    I would love some of the Symphony of Blue. It is so nice to see you have the wide backings, now.

  206. Nina Says:
    01/18/2012 4:18 am

  215. AidaCJ/NH Says:
    01/18/2012 7:09 am

    I would love either one of them, although I am more of a blue person. It’s so nice that Connecting Threads now carries this size of fabric. I don’t have to run around looking for a backing, since all I need is to log on to CT and shop, even in the middle of the night.
    Great job – Connecting Threads, hope you’d keep adding more to this product.
    Thanks – Aida

  216. LFerguson Says:
    01/18/2012 7:12 am

    01/18/2012 2:32 pm

    This is great that you now offer backing fabric! I would love to have the Symphony of Blues fabric for the back of a blue and white log cabin bed quilt that I’m almost done piecing.

  233. Sylvia Says:

  236. Julie S Says:
    01/18/2012 3:13 pm

    WOW!!! I have the perfect quilt (i’m working on it now) for the Symphony of Blues fabric. It’s a scrappy Trips around the World from Bonnie Hunter’s web site, It’s being bound in blue as we speak!!!

  237. Cynthia Fedak Says:
    01/18/2012 4:14 pm

    I bought some blue and white strips from your company so the Symphony of Blues fabric would go great with it. I haven’t started my quilt top yet, but have the pattern ready. I have always pieced narrower fabric on all of my other quilts, so this would be a welcome change with the wide. Beautiful fabric!

  238. Dorothy Moses Says:
    01/18/2012 4:29 pm

    Charlottesville please! Your fabric is wonderful. I always get excited when a new collection comes out. I favor the northwoods and Civil War types, but am a lover of all.

  239. Annette Boersma Says:
    01/18/2012 4:47 pm

    These are both so beautiful it’s hard to choose, but since I can only pick one, I will pick Symphony of Blues! It looks like it would show such nice stippling when quilted and still show off on its own. Thank you for this opportunity!

  240. Debra Duncan Says:
    01/18/2012 4:59 pm

    I think there both georgeous.I like the smaller prints better.Charlottesville would be nice. Can’t wait to see future fabrics. Your doing a fantastic job. Thanks for all you do. And I love shopping with you.

  241. Bonnie Blessing Says:
    01/18/2012 5:39 pm

  242. Debbie Leier Says:
    01/18/2012 5:40 pm

    The Symphony Blues are very nice, but I love the Charlottesville. Love the quality of your fabrics and the quick service. Love the variety of fabrics and also like how you can view a few pages in your books before I purchase. Keep up the great job!

  243. Barb Says:
    01/18/2012 6:46 pm

    Love them both, but I think the Charlottesville works best with my usual color choices. What a wonderful offering! Thanks

  244. Sherry Wilson Says:
    01/18/2012 7:03 pm

    Well, I don’t really care for the Blues but I do really like the Charlottesville. This would be a wonderful addition to my stash.

  386. Linda Hughes Says:
    01/21/2012 10:17 am

    Ooh – love your backing fabrics. My first choice would be Charlottesville because it would go with anything and also I tend to lean toward historic fabrics.

  387. Kathy Yount Says:
    01/21/2012 11:11 am

  388. Gayle L. Says:
    01/21/2012 11:13 am

    I will be excited even more when you add more backing to the fabric groups. I have several red, white and blue tops and need backings for them so I choose the “Symphony of Blues”. I am afraid that the brown of Charlottesville might not work out.

  389. Lisa B Says:
    01/21/2012 12:02 pm

    Love both of ‘em! Since I have to choose, Symphony in Blues it is because it goes well with my recent order of fabric! Thanks!

    I love the symphony of blues. Our group makes quilts for chemo patients and that fabric would be soothing and restful. Thank you for having the give away.

    I choose Charlottesville. I recently purchased the kit and can’t wait to make it. Love Civil War fabrics and Charlottesville! That is where I met my husband and we were married there. Thanks.

    Symphony of Blues! I have a couple projects I need to finish and have promised myself a blue and white quilt once I’m done. This backing would be awesome.

    This is my first time on your website and it won’t be the last! I am loving what I see and could really put the wide backing fabric to good use. I would really like to win the Charlottesville to finish a vintage quilt I have.
