These 100% cotton fabrics are perfect for backing quilts, for long unpieced borders and bindings, and for other large items such as duvet covers. They are economical to buy and reduce the length of seams that need to be sewn.
At nine feet wide (108 ins., 2.75m), a single length of fabric will cover just about any size of bed. The length you need to purchase is just the width of your quilt. As a guide, 2m is normally sufficient for a twin bed, 2.5m for a double, and 3m for a queen/king, but please measure your finished quilt first as these guide measurements are just approximations. For borders, we suggest purchasing 1/2 metre for four borders up to 4 1/2" (12cm) wide, and 1 metre for wider borders.
All our extra wide fabrics are first quality cotton fabrics made by the same manufacturers from which we source our standard width fabrics. New Threads does not compromise on quality to obtain the extra width.
Our extra wides are sold in half metre increments. Order the total number of half metres you require. Prices shown below are per half metre.
If you would like help calculating how much backing you need, or if you would like a sample swatch to match colour, please telephone 01264 771443 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
