    Default Cotton lawn question

    I am thinking about buying a jelly roll for a quilt and it is cotton lawn. I haven't used this type of fabric before. Is it basically just like working with cotton, but softer?

    I had to google it to see what it is... found this link and she goes into detail on making sure to use finer needles, silk pins, etc. I think it would make a soft type quilt. She also has other blogs on other fabrics too.

    I know I didn't answer your question, I think it is a personal preference, what you like to sew with and are you looking for a winter (heavy) or summer (lighter) type quilt.

    Here is another link with another quilter's take on cotton+steel

    Thanks for the question for I sure learned from it.

    The second article that Mimi posted is what I knew of it, nice quality clothing, so why not a quilt!

    Thank you! A friend picked it out on MS* for me to use to make her daughter a quilt for her wedding. She’s waiting on me to give her the ok to purchase it. The arrows were helpful!!
