Tips and Techniques Tuesday – 7/10/12

The pictures below show parts of a beautiful, finished quilt. The catch? Certain areas of the quilt are falling apart due to the fabric quality. That leaves us with the question – is there really a difference between fabrics from quilt shops and fabrics from chain stores?

The answer is yes.

  1. That’s easy if you know fabric, you can feel the difference in the quality as well as see it. If you hold it up to the light you can see the low thread count. Cheaper is not always better when it comes to fabric. It’s not worth all the time you have invested to have it come apart in the wash or the fist time it is used.
