Default a table runner made with bamboo fabrics

I found this lovely bamboo fabric & wanted to give it a try---but didn't want to make a whole quilt with it- so made a table runner- it is very nice fabric to work with- very soft- and washed up nicely-
i may use some in a quilt now. front & back

Is each piece bamboo fabric? I've been wanting to try to quilt with some but it is sooo expensive.
Looks super! I love the butterfly fabric.

yes- the pieces are all bamboo- the backing is not- and yes it was expensive- that's why i only made a table runner- didn't want to spend enough to make a whole quilt- not knowing how it would hold up- and be to work with- it is a very lovely fabric to use- and washes up nicely- so far --

I haven't seen the bamboo fabric but I love the bamboo batting. Equally as soft and easy to needle through when hand quilting. Too bad the prices are so high since bamboo is an easily renewable plant source.
