Re: Bali Batik Cotton price?

It seems like a good deal, but you also need to consider thread count. . . As far as quilting fabrics go, I think the number is 200+? The $9-12 ones usually feel very smooth/silky, where some of the lesser quality ones feel more rough. As far as diapermaking goes, I'm not sure that makes a huge diff, right?

Real Batik around here is 20$/meter, that's CAD. So yeah, 4$ is a steal! I'd also check thread count, but at that price I'd be buying many many yards!
