The fabric is made from the finest quality of cotton. This fabric design is part of Robert Kaufman's classic collection.

Secondly, you need to consider the usage of the fabric. If the fabric is going to be used for seating and will receive high-traffic, than you need to consider the durability and thread count of the fabric. By spending the extra money in high quality cotton fabric will protect your investment.
Another factor to consider if the fabric will be in a high-use environment is if the fabric is stain resistant. One spill could ruin the upholstery. This is easily avoided by purchasing stain resistant upholstery.

I found this cute checkbook make out of Moda Fabric on Etsy made by ModDiva. Isn't this green paisley checkbook the cutest thing?
Fabric used for this checkbook is from the Moda Swanky Collection designed by Chez Moi. The fabric is very pretty (green is one of my favorite color) and the swirly stitching make this piece even more interesting.
Moda is a leading manufacturer for designer quilting fabric. What I love about Moda the most is the variety of pre-cut fabric they make available. For anyone who love to sew and quilt but does not like to cut fabric, using Moda pre-cut fabric is most advantageous.
I think a Moda Layer Cake would be a great option to make little projects like this checkbook. A Moda Layer Cake usually consists of 40 pre cut fabric squares that measure 10" x 10". This way, you can complete a small craft project without having to waste so much fabric. Love it.

Quilting has been around for thousands of years. Some believe it began in the early Egyptian era where mummified pharaohs were found wearing quilts. Back in those days, quilting was extremely hard work where the cotton had to be spun by hand and the fabric pieced together using rudimentary instruments.
Thankfully, today it's much easier where we have a seemingly endless supply of different fabric available to us from online retailers. It's easy to choose the fabrics that compliment each other from the comfort of your home.
It's even become easier in recent years with the introduction of pre-cut fabric. There aren't a lot of companies selling pre-cut fabric these days but one of the most popular companies is Moda Fabrics. Moda fabric has an amazingly wide selection of pre-cut fat quarters, charm packs, layer cakes, jelly rolls, and honey buns. Buying pre-cut fabric makes it even easier for us quilters because now we don't have to spend time cutting squares and strips.
- A Moda Jelly Roll contains 40 pre-cut fabric strips each measuring 2.5" x 44". Each fabric strip is from the same fabric collection so they are perfectly complimentary to each other.
- A Moda Honey Bun is basically identical to a Moda Jelly Roll except the fabric strips are 1.5" wide.
- Fat quarters are a quarter yard of fabric that are cut lengthwise. So if the fabric is 44" wide you end up with a fat quarter that is 18" x 22".
- a Moda Layer cakes consists of 40 pre-cut fabric squares. Each fabric square measures 10" x 10".
- A Moda Charm Pack contains fabric squares that measure 5" x 5". The number of squares in each Moda Charm Pack depends on the fabric collection.
The Sundrop Large Fleur Lavender is a very stylish fabric that has a unique blending when it comes to its color and design.

The flower design makes the fabric easy to notice. This fabric will give a house a certain look that will make it warm for the neighbors and visitors. This is one of the best product designs by Dena.
The pillow on the right is a beautiful floral throw pillow that uses Marimekko fabric. The lime green flowers with hints of blue are great. You probably wouldn't think these two colors go well together but they do.
The pillow on the lower left is a black and white floral throw pillow. This pillow uses home decor fabric from Alexander Henry. The home decor fabric is soft and subtle to the touch but is also machine washable and will last for a long time.
