This article will focus on the types of DIY Patchwork Fabric for Sewing that you can use. At this point I think it is also safe to say that most people are not really very good at sewing and maybe even less know how to sew cloth. This is especially true if they are not a good hand at sewing, as this seems to be the case with most of us when we are young. We are taught to sew by our parents or teachers but the fact is that most of us end up quitting the skill very quickly, due to boredom and the fact that we just do not get it. So this article will focus on two different kinds of fabric that can be used for this kind of project, the soft cotton fabric and the quilting cotton fabric.
Q-Fabric is a term that is sometimes used for any type of quilting cotton fabric that is a bit heavier than other cotton fabrics. While most people believe that it is just one thing, I am going to suggest that there are actually a lot of uses for quilting fabric. When you buy patchwork, you need to know that most people use it for the actual quilting process and to cover the actual seams, which is why Q-Fabric is a lot heavier than your standard cotton fabric. A quilter will buy Q-Fabric and cover the edges of his or her patchwork fabric with a little quilting material, which then gives it a pretty finished look, as you can see in many quilt patterns. These types of patterns will have a name such as “Quilt”Quilt Stripes” and they will have several of these areas covered with quilting fabric.
Another type of quilting fabric is a very high density polyester. Most people will use this material as a backing for the quilt strips. This backing is a little larger than a quilting fabric so that it will have enough density for the threads to be able to stay together. The threads on a quiltare actually formed into pleats and the higher density material makes this possible. Again, the thread backing will go around the edges of the quilt and sometimes the front of the quilt too. Also, when you buy patchwork fabric, you can get it in a variety of colors and the high density polyester fabric is a very popular choice for most quilters. You can usually find the polyester backing as well as the quilting material as part of the same set.
