When you hear the word "primitive", it usually evokes a feeling of early America, with visions of hand spun wool and flax, deep, rich colors, and hand-made folk art. This new line by Pam Buda of Marcus Fabrics is a great complement to our current fabrics at The Cotton Harvest Quilt Shop.
Our fabric is high quality cotton and is torn to maintain the fabric straight of grain. Experienced quilters are aware of the importance of keeping the grain straight for accurate piecing and sewing; and that the bolt fold line is almost always inaccurate. We also add an additional "thumb's width" to the fabric to allow for the customer to line up the edges and trim the raw bits, maintaining the integrity of the grain for further cutting. Actually cutting fabric from the bolt by scissors or rotary cutter ultimately results in a shortage of measure once the grain is straightened. We have several steps in place to ensure the accuracy of pulling fabrics and placing orders.
