    "Hi-Fashion" brand fabrics?

    Has anyone purchased fabrics of the brand "Hi-Fashion"? I have never heard of them but was told it was quilt shop quality. I took the chance on Etsy, because it was too pretty to pass up.

    Any experience with that brand? If so, what would you compare the quality to?

    I've had some....Bought at my fabric wholesaler....was just looking to see if I have any right now, but don't see any. For some reason, I'm thinking that it was 58" wide instead of the regular 44". Quality was just fine...I wouldn 't have bought it if it wasn't...I guess you could call me a fabric snob.

    The one I bought does say it's 44" wide. I'm afraid I'm also somewhat of a fabric snob. Not that I don't use cheaper fabrics, but they surely don't call to me like the good stuff does! LOL

    I got my fabric today and all I can say is WOW! It is gorgeous and feels very nice. I did further research and the name came up in conjunction with Timeless Treasures, so maybe they are related? Anyway, I just wanted to follow up and say how much I love it. Here's a picture, although it doesn't do it justice! It has blues, purples, and gold metalliac. Nice like the Hoffman metalliacs.

    Any pattern suggestions? I haven't picked one yet.

    Wow! Those are my colors! I would want something with large pieces to show that one off. Don't want to cut it!

    I agree, it needs large pieces. Or at the very least, used as borders with more in the blocks.

    It's beautiful. I think you are on the right track using it for borders with some in the quilt.

    I have used "Hi-Fashion" fabrics many times and found them to be excellent quality. It seems like Hancock's carried them a few years back. Many of the prints that I have had have been novelty.
