Quilters Quest has over 1500 bolts of fabric suitable for patchwork and quilting. Our fabric is high quality 100% cotton, perfectly suited for patchwork quilts. Quilter's weight cotton is typically accepted as the best fabric for patchwork quilting. While quilter’s cotton does have shrinkage, it typically shrinks less than cheaper cotton fabrics. Higher quality cotton fabrics are also less likely to bleed, although all fabrics should be tested for colour fastness when using them in patchwork quilts or other patchwork projects. Most of our patchwork fabrics are 44" - 45" wide on the bolt, from selvedge to selvedge. Pre-cut fabrics come in different widths - Quilters Quest will always state the width of each different fabric.
Quilters Quest cotton is also used for clothing by quilters and other sewers. Cotton used for clothing should always be prewashed and dried before beginning any cutting or sewing in order to avoid shrinkage and fit issues after the garment is completed.
All our patchwork and quilting fabric is 100% cotton, unless otherwise stated. Quarter metres can be cut as Long or Fat Quarters.
