    choosing fabrics

    I have made several purchases of fabrics for quilting and have noticed some of the tend to wrinkle and some don't. they all say 100% cotton.... so my question is, how do I choose a white cotton fabric for quilting that does not wrinkle?

    I have been happy with Kona snow, a creamy white and it doesn't seem to wrinkle badly. All cotton is likely to wrinkle if you give it a chance.

      Most fabrics have 'sizing' added to keep them crisp and unwrinkled. If you prewash your fabric, you will remove the sizing.

      Many people will iron their fabric - before cutting - and use either a starch or Best Press to remove wrinkles and provde more sizing to the fabric.
