    Has anyone made a quilt using cotton fabric and seersucker fabric? Pros and cons please. Our little church group, Kreative Krazy Kuilters had scraps of all sizes donates to us. We (being true quilters) can't throw anything away & would like some advice if seersucker is hard to work with. Thank you all for all your help.

    I haven't quilted with it but did make several outfits with it for clothing back in the day....

    Was easy to sew with so think it would be fine for some scrappy quilts.

    I was considering it. I may use green seersucker for leaves, so the extra texture will be fine.

    Some can have a little more stretch than quilting cotton, but I think it would be cute in a quilt :D:D:D

    no reason not to give it a try- may need a bit of stablizer-if it's thin-if it's not so thin the stablizer won't be necessary- i've used it for appliques and some in a crazy quilt. adding texture to a quilt is a good thing :)

    I did a whole quilt of it - but don't think I would like to mix it with flat weave cotton. The texture is too different. Also - I tied my quilt, did not quilt it and don't think I would like to because of the texture issue.

    You can make string quilts out of everything and anything. Use a foundation to piece them, I tie them using a blanket or poly batting.

    I appliqued seersucker piggies on cotton and had no trouble with it.......it stretches a minimal amount because of the wavy texture so you might take that into account if you're using it to piece.
