Sateen fabric is basically a woven cotton fabric with a smooth shiny surface. The surface is lustrous and glossy and the reverse side is more dense and not as smooth. Stash fabrics stocks many 100% cotton sateen widebacks that are perfect for quilt backs. Sateen can be sewn and quilted just like regular quilting cotton and feels soft and cuddly on the back of your quilt.
The word sateen refers to a weave pattern that features three or four warp threads that go over one weft thread. This weave pattern gives sateen its wonderful smooth texture. Sateen fabric can be made of rayon, silk, nylon, cotton, or a blend. Sateens can be used for apparel, home decor, or quilts. Most quilters choose 100% cotton sateen for their projects. Sateen fabric is durable, low maintenance, and wrinkle-resistant.
