All of our Quilting fabrics are 100% cotton, great quality medium weight cotton fabrics and perfect for making a patchwork quilt from. There is no reason that they cannot be used for dressmaking, crafts, curtains (with a lining) and other light home decoration projects. The cottons are all woven cottons and have a smooth finish to them. These fabrics are less prone to shrinkage due to their quality and less likely to bleed their colours than cheaper cotton fabrics. Pre washing is always recommended before you begin your project as there may be a small amount of shrinkage. We sell these quilting fabrics in 5cm intervals starting from 25cm and by the fat quarter as well, so it is not necessary to buy more than you need. So if you are quilting you should be able to find plenty of gorgeous fabrics to tempt you without it costing too much. We also have a free returns service, free postage options and a generous loyalty scheme as well, see the links below for details.
