Quilting Facts

There are times when people ask us about a particular cut of fabric, and wonder what exactly it is.  We've decided to add a "Quilting Facts" page to our site for helpful hints on exactly what the different manufacturers are calling their specialty cuts.  We will continue to update this page with useful tips and pointers.  We hope this will be a useful tool for you.
