    I'm not sure if thats the correct spelling or not. My partner talked me into buying 3 bolts of the stuff, and I'm wondering if any of you have used this fabric, and what you did with it?

    I'd be interested in hearing from you.

    it is great for baby blankets and lap blankets. I would be careful using it because it is really silky and can move around and stretch. I haven't tried to starch it yet. but that is going to be my next test on a doll size quilt.

    i use it for baby quilt backings, the cloth baby blocks, making "taggies" for babies. i will say, that, in order for me to sew it nice, i have to press a woven stablizer on the back of it. but that may be me.
    what kind of deal did you get? !

    I have used it 2x and I love it. I just bought 6 more yards this past weekend for another backing. It does have a nap & it does stretch so keep that in mind. I was concerned about all of that but I did not have any problems at all. What color did you get? There are such pretty colors. Have fun. :D

    I got a brown, mint green and a matching green and brown houndstooth. Anyway I think that that is what that pattern is called. And your right, it is soft.
