“Petal’s colour-fastness surprised me – I pre-washed the fabric and there was no colour difference at all between the unwashed and washed fabric. Petal Signature Cotton has a stable and sturdy hand, which made it easier to sew the skinny strips in this pattern.” – Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop

“Petal is a FABULOUS replacement that really checks a lot of boxes for me! The colors are vivid and clear and the weight is perfect for stitching. I also really love the weight of the cotton, it feels sturdy, yet is super soft once it’s stitched up.” – Brittany Lloyd of Lo & Behold Stitchery

“New Spoonflower Petal Cotton is amazing. It has everything one needs in a cotton fabric. Lightweight, yet tight weave. The color pops rather than fades into the fabric to look dull like the Basic and Kona did. It sews like a dream with very little fray. Washes great and loses almost no dyes (cold wash-gentle and low-med dryer). Virtually no lint shed and as you can see almost no wrinkling. I used to avoid the Kona and Basic fabrics except for the test proofing of my designs. Now I can use Petal for my sewing and quilting and my projects just got a little less expensive!”@katrineannetteeagling

“When the fabric arrived I was so impressed with the color vibrancy but SO concerned about how stiff they were! I was for real panicky for a hot minute! 😅😅😅 I had never used Spoonflower before so I wasn’t totally sure what to expect. I knew that Spoonflower digitally prints onto the fabric so I figured maybe it had something to do with that process. I pre-washed it (which I usually never do!) just to be safe and it 🎉DID🎉 soften up some on the first wash and press (but it REALLY softened up over the time I worked with it… so by the time it’s quilted up it felt no different than most of my other quilts)!”Evie Jeserpsen of EVQuilts
