I'm starting to look at fabric's for my husband's lap quilt (a grey and blue "winding ways") and thought I had found the perfect fabric for it, Kaffe Fassett's "colour shot" aka "shot cotton". Problem is I've heard back from 2 different retailers that the fabric is thinner than most quilting cottons and is simillar in weight to indian cotton.
I've used indian cotton in some costuming I've done and I'm realy leery of trying to quilt it. It's very lightweight, loosly woven and amoung other things I worry that the batting might show through.
Has anybody quilted indian cotton, did it work, will it hold up to being a lap quilt for a husband who generaly has a cat on his lap?
