Quilting Fabric...More
Than Meets the Eye

NEXT: Fabric Colors



In these quilting fabric lessons, you'll learn how to choose the best fabric for your quilts. You won't have to make the same mistakes I did when I first started quilting.

As a self-taught quilter, I didn't know that some fabrics were better than others. Boy, did I have a lot to learn! The truth is... there's more to fabric than how beautiful it looks on the bolt.

For starters, there's the issue of quality. Do you know how to choose the best fabrics for your quilt? How about coordinating colors and prints?

Many beginners have a hard time with this. Some become discouraged and give up. I don't want that to happen to you. That's why I wrote these lessons. Knowledge is power. And, if you educate yourself about fabric, you won't make costly mistakes. And you'll definitely have more fun!
