      Choosing Fabric For Quilts....From the Folks at Craftsy

      Are you ready to sew your first quilt? Congratulations, that is wonderful news! Nothing beats a warm, cozy, handmade quilt. They are wonderful for the home and make incredibly personal gifts for loved ones. Not only are they treasured goods, they are so much fun to make. Every step of the way can be embraced and enjoyed. That begins with choosing fabric.

      One of the biggest decisions to be made before the quilting process can even begin is fabric. Wondering how to choose fabric for a quilt? With the thousands of choices available these days, this can be a bit overwhelming. When creating a quilt, there are several different ways to tackle fabric choice.

      Here are several things to keep in mind when choosing fabric for a quilt

      Favorite prints

      Sometimes you just come across fabric that speaks to you. Whether it is the colors, prints or the general mood instilled, you fall in love. Use that fabric to build your quilt! Carefully evaluate all of the different colors featured there within that individual print, and pay close attention to those. By using a variety of fabrics in those coordinating shades, a cohesive quilt top can be formed.

      Read the rest of the article HERE at Craftsy!

      Did You Know....

      COTTON-When you light it, it burns with a steady flame and smells like burning leaves. The ash is soft and crumbles easily.
      LINEN-Takes longer to light and smells like burning paper or leaves. The ash is much like a cotton ash.
      SILK-Burns slowly and smells like hair or feathers burning. The ash is grayish and crumbles easily.
      WOOL-Sputters when trying to light and smells like burning feathers or hair. The ash is black and turns to powder when crushed.
      ACRYLIC-Burns and melts easily and smells kind of like vinegar or something acidic. The ash remnant will be hard like a black bead.
      NYLON-Melts and burns slowly and smells like burning celery. The ash is like a hard gray or brown bead.
      POLYESTER-Melts and burns at the same time and can bond quickly to any surface it drips on. The odor is sweet and kind of fruity and the ash is like a hard, black bead.
      RAYON-Burns very fast and smells like burning leaves or feathers. There will be very little ash residue.
      ACETATE-Burns and melts easily and smells like vinegar or something acidic. The ash will be a hard, black bead.

      A lot of the man made fibers, have the same distinctions and will be harder to categorize. When you try the burn test on a fabric blend, it is supposed to burn in the way each fabric would if it was an individual piece. This test is not as reliable with blends.

      Did you know that if you have a fabric and you're not sure what it's made of, you can do a simple burn test to determine what it is? Just use a small square of fabric and tweezers, and have a place to put your fabric as it is burning. You'll be surprised how distinct each fabric is, so read on.

      Reader's Show and Tell....


      I have made lots of the 6 hour Quilts but this is the FIRST and ONLY one I have made in strips. It is all in flannel. My son in law is 6ft 4 tall and asked if I could make him a "utility quilt" that was long enough to go from under his feet and up to his neck. This quilt is 90 inches long and 45 inches wide and I did serge the edges instead of binding. The quilt took longer then 6 hours to make but I learned a great deal. The main one is I doubt if I will ever make one like this again. By the way it is a Christmas gift for my son in law. Thank you again for still having the pattern. My daughter wanted one and I ordered it several weeks ago and have sent it to her.


      Send in your creations. Include a picture or two and a short story about your quilt/tablerunner or wallhanging (or other) and we'll put it on our Show and Tell Page!
