    Moda Fabrics is a quilting fabric supplier. Hapi line by Amy Butler has three components: some are quilting cottons, some are voile (sheer fashion/scarf fabric) and some are decorator linens, as per the website information.

    Proper quilting cottons don’t have the sizing chemicals that fashion fabrics tend to have. Just be aware-I have seen on some decorator cotton fabrics’ selvedges a caution that the fabrics cannot be used for children’s sleepwear if the children are 3 years old or younger-it has to do with children’s sleepwear regulations. Check your country’s consumer product testing standards or federal health agency for requirements that apply in your country.

    I’ve used quilting cottons to sew clothing and have found them to be easy to sew and care for – though I have found that the patterns tend to fade faster – maybe because quilts aren’t mean tot be washed as often as regular clothing? The better the brand (Moda, Amy Butler, etc) the less noticeable the fading, however.

    Yes they are quilting cottons! You could use them for sewing clothes, if you don’t mind the price tag.
