    I love Fairy Frost and live about 2 hours from May Jo's and it's well worth the trip. Thanks, Patrice, for the reminder. Maybe combine Mary Jo's and IKEA.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    Fairy Frost is absolutely gorgeous in quilts..It's just like any regular cotton fabric. It doesn't melt, doesn't flake or wrinkle. It adds such a rich affect to any quilt. I always wash my fabrics as soon as I get them, and FF never wrinkles, for me anyway. You have to use some, it's gorgeous.

    [QUOTE=AngelinaMaria;5264410]So I have been planning an Ohmigosh quilt for a while (the finished size of a 9 patch is 1.5 inches) and have been acculuating Fairy Frost FQ's. I haven't worked with the fabric yet and now realize that it may be very hard to work with based on some comments from my thread about the quilt.

    Does this fabric melt if you iron on the front side?

    I love Fairy Frost! It is so pretty!! The only "problem" I have had with it is that I had used it in place mats and after dozens of washings it is not "shimmery" any more. Still looks pretty and had great color, just no more shimmer.


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    I didn't think it was hard to work with. Appliqued fleur de lis on my grandson's quilt. Made the quilt black with the gold fleur de lis. It worked great. I've also used the turquoise fairy frost in another quilt Really pretty.

    Fairy frost is a high quality fabric, which is loads of fun to coordinate with, the only problem I have ever had with it, is that it is hard to needle turn applique, but can be accomplished with patience. I love this project, and have not had a problem with it fading or losing its sparkle. Have a lot of fun with your quilt.

    no it does not melt---no it is not any more difficult to work with than any other quilting cotton- that is what it is---quilting cotton- it is a beautiful fabric that makes beautiful blocks- i love fairy frosts- have used literally hundreds of yards of it. my Amazing grace quilt has fairy frost for the pineapple blocks- they are just stunning! not sure why you would worry about melting---it is 100% cotton fabric.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy
