    Our Moda sales rep stopped by today and gave the official word that all future Moda collections are going to be printed on the 60x60 thread count cloth that most quilters prefer. They will not be doing any more on the 75x75 finer but thinner cloth.

    This is good news to all the people who were disappointed that some of the Moda fabrics were coming in on thinner cloth.

    We had earlier been told that the 75x75 was actually more expensive for Moda than the 60x60, but that due to market conditions it was more readily available and that played into their decision to print some collections on the 75x75.

    What's especially nice about this is that Moda listened to their customers. Quilters said they preferred the thicker cloth, and Moda wisely is giving us what we want!

    I have just recently seen the finer (75x75) Moda fabrics, they were very soft and nice. I don't know which I prefer, I wonder which will last longer? I guess the main problem I would have with them, would be mixing them with all the other quilt fabrics that I already have, because there is a distinct difference.

    To be honest - personally I am not so happy about that decision, although I understand and respect it. I prefer the finer cottons with a 75x75 thread count because they are perfect for hand quilting! But I also know that I am in the minority and what I do is not what most quilters do.

    what lines were printed on the 75 x 75? I haven't bought fabric in a while and haven't been in a shop for a while either. Thanks for the update!

    I would like to know the answer to this also. Good to hear that they are
    going back to the heavier weight. :thumbup:

    The brands I know on the 75x75 thread count are Quilt Gate and some of the P&B fabrics.

    I buy a lot of Moda but I didnt even know some were thinner. I must not have bought any of the thinner ones. I just bought Moda Grace. I love the prints.

    I'm not sure of ALL the lines that were done on the 75x75, but of the ones we carried, it was Summer Breeze and Dogwood Trail.

    That IS good news! Our LQS has stopped ordering Moda Marbles because they felt so flimsy and these have always be favorites!
