I’ve found that I am a very tactile person. I love fabric and I can’t stop myself from touching every bolt I come in contact with. A friend at Jukebox Quilts in Fort Collins, CO, explained to me that different fabrics have different “hands.” I guess it’s pretty self-explanatory, but when it comes to cotton quilting fabric you can feel the difference in quality by running your hand across a span of fabric. Some of them feel so creamy and delicious it makes my heart beat faster (OK, I’m a little weird!). Those are the fabrics I love to create my quilts out of. Try it next time you’re in a fabric store and you’ll see what I mean!
