Quilting Fabrics by Color

Sure, searching for the perfect color of fabric can be time-consuming, but it's half the fun... provided it doesn't cut into your precious sewing time! Shabby Fabrics has done some of the legwork for you. Choose a color category and you'll find a variety of fabrics loosely grouped within that color family. From solids and basics to gradients and elaborate patterns, you'll be sure to find the perfect style and shade for your quilt. You can even choose all your quilt fabrics from one color family for a neat monochromatic look, like our Boomerang quilt kits!

Are you a newcomer to quilting? Here's a rundown of your basic fabric types.

Cotton is the classic quilting staple. It's easy for beginners to work with and is the preferred medium of many advanced quilters for its versatility and range of styles. Most of our cotton fabric has designs that are printed directly onto the fabric, although you can also find woven cottons. Our cotton fabrics are quilt grade. They are created by top manufacturers, and are designed by fabric collection artists who know exactly what quilters are looking for. Each fabric has bright, colorfast colors; a high thread count; a smooth finish; and is much less likely to tear or fray than a low-quality fabric. When it comes to quilting, a top-grade fabric is well worth the investment! All our Shabby Fabrics Original laser-cut fusible appliqué kits are made from high grade quilting cotton.

Flannel is thicker and softer than cotton. The texture is reminiscent of that beloved plaid shirt hiding deep in your closet. It's also durable. Our Crib QuiltSelf-Binding Receiving Blanket, and Ultimate Toddler Bib are all made from the Maywood Studio Lil' Sprout Flannel collection, which is perfectly soft! These projects are perfect for beginner quilters who want to try out flannel fabrics.

Batik is a specialty fabric. Designs in wax are hand painted by artisans onto cotton or other natural fabrics. The fabrics are then dyed in various colors. The wax protects the color underneath, much like a clear crayon on an Easter egg. The fabric can then be dyed in many patterns and shades, leading to incredible effects! Due to the nature of the process, variations in color and pattern are to be expected, and are considered part of the natural beauty of the fabric. For those hoping to try batik for the first time, we recommend one of our batik precuts. Available in fat quarter sets, strip packs, and sometimes charm packs and layer cakes, precut sets allow you to collect many unique batik fabrics for an affordable price.
