Design aside, what are the differences (if any) between no-brand vs brand name quitting cottons?
By "no-brand", I mean those lower priced quitting cottons, eg found at the calicoes section of Joanns. Brand name ones are eg those from Free Spirit, Hoffmans, Westminsters, etc.
I have a quilt which I hung near a window for 1 year. I realised that the "no brand" ones has faded a tad, but the brand name ones have held up rather well.
Also, not all quiting cottons have the same weight. Some have a lighter-hand. I guess there are advantages and disadvantages to both thinner and thicker quiting fabric.
I don't mean to be a snob by saying no-brand vs brand name, I just want to hear your "fabric" experiences, since we spend so much effort on them
