On Nov 21, Joann's will have a sale on Pellon Natures Soft cotton batting.  It's a 25 yard roll, 90" wide for $99.99 which looks incredible to me. Plus the 10% I get off for the QCA membership would bring it down to $90! It says it's lightweight, breathable, needle punched with a stabilizing scrim binder.

I don't know what all that means. Has anyone used it? How does it compare to Warm and Natural which is what I've always used?


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

I just came upon this post as I was looking to get some opinions on this batting. I bought it at JoAnn's awhile ago, queen size for $15, half-price. The lady at the register told me she had used it and loved it, for both hand and machine quilting. I want to use it to hand quilt, and have my quilt all sandwiched (spray basted) but now am worried the scrim will make hand quilting too difficult. I found the batting to be very soft and pliable, much more so than Warm and Natural, maybe slightly thinner as well. For those reasons I am hoping it will needle well. Let's hope so....

Oh, I forgot. I did prewash it in my front-loader and it came out great. I just put hot water in the final rinse, and spun it on gentle and then dried it.

This is actually great batting. You should have no problems hand quilting with it at all. I have used it in the past and found it much easier to hand quilt with then the Warm and Natural. Don't get me wrong I love Warm and Natural, but it is much better for machine quilting.

Whoa, Barbara, someones been cleaning up your typing for you.  What I received in my email was a lot different.  Do we have a "Typing Fairy" in our midst?
