This is my test for 'quality' fabric. How does it drape?Originally Posted by davidwent
Take an unused fabric softener sheet, open it up and drape it over your hand. Now take a used fabric softener sheet and do the same thing. Notice how 'limp' the used sheet is. That is how 'unquality' fabric will drape. The quality fabric will drape like the unused sheet. Generally fabric from Wal-Mart, Jo-Anns etc is not quality fabric.
Quilt store fabric is quality fabric (that's why it costs more). Hope this helps.
