    I checked it out. Very pretty and definitely a good deal but I would be concerned about the weight. If it were me I would be sure and use a block with larger pieces and make sure that whatever you put with it is a like weight. Just my thoughts. :-D

    I saw these, but did you notice what I did? It is dry clean only.

    As long as you prewash before using it should be Ok, just be aware that whatever sheen it has now will probably be gone after washing. That is why most cotton home deco fabrics say dry clean only. So they stay crisp and shinny.

    I've thought about using home dec fabric for some purses I want to make. They are a little heavier weight.

    I used a home deco fabric for a backing in a table cloth, since I didn't want a batting and it worked great, gave it a good weight so it hangs nice and stays in place. It is even reversable.....Washed and machine dried first.

    I don't think I would like how heavy they are, good luck using them.
