I prefer 100% cotton made fabrics, because cotton is easy to handle, mark, press and sew by hand.There is nothing better than a soft, fluffy quilt.Most people like cotton quilts as it extremely easy to maintain, they last for a long time, and are comfortable to use, whenever you want to use it.
In Malaysia 100% cotton fabric is quite expensive. I always use American Cotton that price range from RM28 - RM50 permeter (sometimes even more). Sometimes I have to wait for the store to having a sale to buy the Fabric.
Yesterday I went to a store specialized in quilt and they are having sales!!. The price is from 10% -30% less from the usual price. I bought about 12 meter of lovely fabric and it gonna be use for my current project. Click to the picture to see the larger images.
