I'm looking for some cute cotton prints to use for clothes. When looking under "apparel" fabric there aren't many cute prints, but under the quilting sections, there are so many that I just have to have. But my question is- can I used these for clothes?

Yes you can. Sometimes if you look at the quilting fabrics they actually say something like "good for crafts, quilting, apparel" but even if they don't, they're still perfectly fine to use.

Thanks! I'm searching mostly online, because I have no local fabric store. But I think next weekend I'll make a day trip and browse Hancocks! I'm really excited.

I buy quilting fabric all the time for apparel.  Like you said there are so many cute patterns it's hard to resist.  They hold up really well, after all I make alot of it into kids clothes  Wink and I've rarely had any issues.
