Quilt With Us

For those of you who have ordered and used the CT material semi-solid mirage- has anyone else noticed a difference in the way the material feels?  I've gotten a few orders or the material to use as backing and just washed and dried one of them to use in a new block and it has a very different feel to it. I like it, it feels softer and holds its shape pretty good when cut on the angles.

I was just curious to know if it was just me or if it's the material.

I think it feels smooth and silky, and yes, it's nice to work with.  I noticed the same effect with a pc of batik fabric from a local QS.  Very nice!

Kathy, I think it feels different too.  I like it a lot.

Ok so it's not just me.  I am gonna have to get more of this fabric and then figure out what to do with it.

The Mirage fabric IS soft and has a nice "feel."  I have several of the colors and will probably order more.  The "sueded" appearance in the catalog photos is a function of the color shading, and not an attribute of the fabric itself.  Is that why it is called "Mirage"?  In any case, it's a good blender in quilts.

Interesting.  I plan to order some soon.  It always look to me in the pictures like a sueded material - is it anything like that.

I love those fabrics.  They do feel nice and soft.

Kathy, I just got my order with the Mirage fabric in it and have not used it yet.  I guess I will be getting in a hurry now to try it out. I will try to let you know as soon as I give it a try.
