    Hi everyone,
    Someone gave me a crinkly skirt. A long one and it's a tan color. Wonder if I could use it in a quilt. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Does the label say what kind of fabric it is ?

    You can use anything in a quilt , just would make a difference in the care of the quilt

    Hello and Welcome to the board!!!
    You could keep it wrinkly and iron on a fusible interfacing on the back to hold it shape.
    A lot of that fabric I have seen is "almost" stretchy feeling, so you may want to use the interfacing even if you want to iron it out :wink:

    Usually broomstick skirts are gauze, too thin to hold up for regular use. You might get away with using it in a wall hanging.
