    I was wondering if anyone has used Texture Magic fabric for a quilting project. It looks like a cool product to use in a quilt, but I'm half skeptical at the same time because obviously a company is supposed to make a product look good so you'll buy it.

    If you go under the video tab you can see how they have used it in different fabrics.

    I just bought some and haven't used it..have seen it in a demo though..can tell you that your fabric shrinks about 30%..so you have to allow for shrinkage...it's neat..I've seen it used in a flag..I've thought about flowers...it will tell you in the directions about shrinkage...also I think you have to use a steam iron..you steam it but do not press it if I remember right...hope I have helped you some...

    They got shrinking thread too?

    I really liked the one video where she showed the jacket that she had with accents of textured fabric and they had used a matching metallic thread for it.

    A lightbulb just went off in my head.

    Wouldn't it be cool to use Texture Magic fabric on fabric for the centers of the squares in a Cathedral quilt?

    The steam is what makes it shrink.

    Neat product, but very pricey. It makes a really cute purse though!

    I bought a purse at a craft show for my Mom...they made the flap with the texture magic and it is really cool looking.
    I want to get some and try a few projects of my own.

    I saw this stuff before and I thought it looked really cool. But I figured that as with most of the stuff I love it's probably way too advanced for me. But I would love to get some and try it! I can just picture a baby quilt made with chenielle sp? and all smushed up like that!

    I recently bought some but haven't tried it. I watched a demo and thought there are lots of possibilties here to create interesting textures for a variety of projects. The downside is that it is expensive - I wouldn't be able to buy it for a big project.

    I made a wall hanging called Hanging of the Lights. It is penguins hanging Christmas lights. I used Texture Magic for the tummys on the penguins and it came out so cute. It is expensive but I only used it for small projects.
