Quilting Fabrics FAQs

What are the benefits of weighted cotton?

Weighted cotton is still the best fabric for quilters, as it has numerous benefits. This type of cotton shrinks considerably less compared to other types of cotton, giving you the best value for money. Weighted cotton is also very colourfast, this means that your quilt is less likely to bleed colour when you wash it for the first time. Even with weighted cotton, Spotlight always recommends washing your fabrics before you start sewing with them. Most fabrics have some degree of shrinkage upon their first wash, so you want to prevent your fabric from shrinking once it is turned into a quilt. So, always pre-wash your weighted cotton beforehand.


What is the best quilting fabric for decorative cushions, pillows and bags?

Quilting techniques can be used for so much more than quilts alone. In fact, experienced quilters can tackle projects such as customer bags, decorative pillow covers and cushions. Of course, these types of crafts also demand a specific quilting fabric.

For more decorative and detailed work, you want to choose a cotton fabric that is somewhat heavier and has a sateen finish. You can often find this fabric under the name home decoration fabric. When you use a heavier cotton fabric with a sateen finish, be careful when selecting your batting. Lighter batting tends to do a little better than the normal options, but you can always experiment a little.


What are the more unusual fabrics used in quilting?

While quilter's cotton is the best option for quilters these days, it does not mean that quilter's cotton is your only option. Quite the opposite actually, because there are a variety of other fabrics that could have applications in your quilting projects.

One of the fabrics that is picked up a lot by quilters these days is voile. While you might associate this kind of fabric with tutus and scarves, they are remarkably useful for quilting too. Many quilters use this kind of fabric for their backing and complement it with some weighted cotton for the top. As it provides a much softer finish, it is the perfect choice for bedroom quilts.

In addition to voile, you might want to consider some linen too. While it is not as soft as cotton, it is a much crispier and textured fabric. If you want to bring some additional texture to the design, then look for some quilter's linen to make your quilt design.

If you are a beginner, Spotlight recommends starting with the basic quilter's cotton. Other materials can be a little trickier to work with where quilting is concerned, so you want to master your quilting skills a little first. Once you become more proficient at quilting, you want to look into other materials such as voile and linen.
