Limit 1 each of a particular fabric swatch and 10 total sample swatches per month per household are FREE for US customers only.  For international customers it is only $.24 each with FREE shipping.  Swatches usually measure approximately 3" x 3" but can vary, and are not sent in yards.  Sample swatches are usually mailed within 5 business days. 

This service is offered to our customers so that you may have the opportunity to see, touch and feel the wide quilt backing fabrics you are interested in purchasing. Due to the increase in volume of orders, we regret that we are no longer able to choose swatches or make suggestions for you as we do not have the time and resources available to do so.  Our primary focus is to ship your orders as quickly as possible, and this takes away from our order processing time.  We would hope that since we are offering this as a free service that you would be willing to spend your own time perusing our website and making your own choices.  We thank you for your understanding. 

To help us continue this as a FREE service, we ask that you please limit your wide quilt backing swatch order to 1 each of a particular fabric swatch for a total of no more than 10 swatches per household per 30 day rolling period, and 40 swatches over a one year rolling period.  We are a small, family run business and sample swatches are very labor intensive to create, so we appreciate your understanding in helping us keep our costs down.  Let us know if you have any questions or if you have any difficulty ordering.  You can send Christine an email at or give us a call at 844-712-1386. 

If we feel that this free service is being abused by anyone at anytime, BackSide Fabrics reserves the right to cancel your free swatch order.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
