Fabric has three grains, the lengthwise, the crosswise and the bias.  The lengthwise grain follows the the warp thread parallel to the selvage.  It has very little give which makes it ideal for long borders.  The crosswise grain follows the weft thread and has slightly more give.  The bias is a 45 degree angle to the selvage and has lots and lots of give
