    Fabric help

    So what is your experiences with this type of fabric? I'm looking for that for a bed and is a 100% cotton
    1) Kona pimatex solids and does any one know about the thread count that would be super.
    2) kona solids
    or any other ones that are soft and cuddly.
    thanks

    Moda's bella solids are wonderful. I use them all the time, you can even get some of the 1930's colors in them.

    i like batiks for pillow cases- our normal quilting cottons have a thread count of about 60---nothing close to the hundreds used for sheets/pillowcases in stores-
    for soft i go with flannel- for regular cotton i go for batiks- which can have 100+ thread count.
    pretty much any 100% cotton will soften & just get (cozier) with each laundering- it is the nature of the cotton fibers- poly blends do not soften with age- they stay the same as they are in the beginning. i love muslins when i want something that is going to be wonderfully soft after laundering- and they dye beautifully too- i often will pick up a bolt of bleached muslin then dye it to match quilts/projects i want to accessorize
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy
