    Have you noticed how much solid white is going into quilts this year? I absoulutely love it. It's amazing how all the other fabrics seem to take center stage from there.

    I haven't used white in quite a while. I like off white on off white or white on white. Really makes colors pop.

    where can i find a good quality white fabric? i just made a quilt and used some white fabric i had on hand. it is nice. i can hardly see my hand through it. Kona and muslin and others all are too thin. Kona used to be nice.
    I have a feeling this white i used was a sheet at one time. maybe not. i don't know.

    For really beautiful whites, look in the Asian fabrics. There are some spectacular whites and the fabric is super nice.

    I do like the white in quilts, I prefer it to black. I do use a great deal of white on whites , but have seen some great quilts here lately with just plain white.

    This morning I was making 2 baby quilts for recently born grand nieces, fabrics were 30's repo baby prints in mint and a sweet light orange and I added white as accent. Had just enough of the print fabrics to make the blocks, borders and binding but thought quilts looked too small. Good old white came to the rescue as a 2 1/2" inner border. Brightened the quilts up considerably as well as making them larger. May in Jersey

    I am another one that just loves white in quilts. I love Kona Snow for my 30's fabric & Civil War. Well I really use mostly Natural for CW fabrics but the white just makes everything pop. And shows off quilting stitches better.
