There is no right or wrong fabric to use in quilting. It’s all about personal preference and your budget.
Here are some of the most popular choices:
Cotton: 100% Cotton fabrics are the most popular choice for both top and backing fabric. Available in lots of colours and designs, there is usually lots to choose from!
Fleece: Used as a backing fabric for a super warm quilt. Soft and cozy but can be expensive and prone to pilling after washing.
Flannel: Can be used as a top or backing fabric for a soft and snuggly warm quilt. Less expensive than fleece, but it can shrink and fray along the edges. Popular for quilts for babies and children
Wool: One of the more expensive fibres to use, but is super warm, and super durable. Suitable for heavy duty quilts, you'll need a high quality thread and a good strong needle!
