    hi,

    Just curious - what's the difference between broadcloth and other "regular" fabric - other than the price? Does broadcloth perform well over the long haul in a quilt?

    It has a different texture, I don't think it is as soft as the cottons we normally use... :D:D:D

    QUOTED FROM THE INTERNET:
    "Broadcloth is a densely woven solid fabric usually made of Cotton either in a blend of Polyester/ Cotton, or 100% Cotton. Broadcloth is an extremely sturdy and very soft fabric most commonly used for quilting, crafts, apparel, men's shirts, display and tabletops.

    FabricDirect.com sells the largest selection of Broadcloth Cotton Solid Fabrics on the Web at Wholesale Prices.
    FabricDirect.com also offer Kona Cotton,
    A 100% Cotton Broadcloth from Robert Kaufman Fabrics"

    I love cotton broadcloth. I just used it for a quilt backing.
    Mine was really soft.
