Let me start by saying I'm no fabric snob atleast I didn't think so!! But today a beginner quilter asked me what is the best kind of fabric to buy and I replied 100% cotton with a nice tight weave. Then proceeded to show her what I meant. Do you know how much poly/cotton I have but have stopped using?? More than you want to know. And it's all your faults!!! LOL!!

Surprisingly enough I have survived our Wal Mart not selling fabric. There are some projects that I'd use their fabrics on & then there was some that I wouldn't. But in the beginning it was great, it held up almost 10 yrs in DS's quilt he used EVERYDAY so I guess I can't complain. I just don't spend as much since they have gotten rid of fabric

Use up your poly/cotton on a scrape quilt. Or practice on new blocks, or give it to your daughter and tell her to make another quilt. STill lots of ideas to use it for. I know not all my material is all cotton, but that's what I try to use now.

Just curious. Why not use poly/cotton? What happens to the quilt when you use it?

Nothing happens. The all cotton fabric is just softer and doesn't seen to have as much stretch as the poly/cotton. Don't get me wrong but I just couldn't believe I said that to her. First off I was shocked when she tapped my shoulder and asked me if I was a quilter and then wanted advice on fabrics. That was first time anyone ever asked me that in wm and then when I said what I said I walked off thinking have I become a cotton snob. I buy 99% of my fab's at wm.
