Did you know quilters had designer fabric? I didn’t until about a year ago. My aunt is an avid quilter. She wanted to make my baby a quilt, so I went to check out the fabrics at Oklahoma Quiltworks on Penn and Britton in OKC. Most of them are your basic cotton twill. Here are a few of my ideas: curtains, pillows, baby bedding, bags, and children’s clothes. I would love to hear some of your ideas for these gorgeous, modern fabrics!
All of these photos were taken at Oklahoma Quiltworks http://www.okquiltworks.com/
Prices seemed to range from about $4.00 to $10.00 per yard.
Here is a list of designers:
Amy Butler http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/

Heather’s blog is darling! It’s full of beautiful pictures and fun craft projects. Definitely make time peruse.
Obviously, most of these designers do not just design their fabrics for quilts. They are used for many, many different things. I just wanted to show another option when looking for fabrics. So check out your local quilt store or get online and order some!
