Has anyone out there ever used this batting (Quilters Dream Puff) I would love to here any reviews on it, and I would love to see any finished quilt pictures using this product so I can see weather it would be the one I want to use. Thanks.

I  began doing hand needlework and sewing in 4-H in the late 1960's as a young child and quilting in the mid-late 70's as I began to prepare to go to college.   Back then fabric was cheap and I could make my own comforter and rugs for my dorm room cheaper than I could buy them and we measured with a tape measure and a yard stick using templates and actual geometry tools. No rotary cutters mats or plastic templates existed, but fortunately I had a grandma who planted the seed.   I earned my home economics education degree from Iowa State in 1982 and have been teaching off and on since then in some form or another.  My goal was to be a consumer home economist for the ISU extension service, but getting married to a naval officer took me out of Iowa and opened a whole new avenue of family support services and youth ministry.   I have often wondered if I would have not moved out of Iowa if I would have been able to work with Fons and Porter as they developed their own business or for Better Homes and Gardens as they developed their quilting magazine.  After traveling the word and raising my own children, I now teach as a contract educator for Jo-Ann's Fabrics in Fairview Heights, IL (Metro-East St. Louis) as well as maintain a small studio out of my home.  I mainly quilt things out of recycled fabrics to create memory quilts, memorial teddy bears, T-shirt quilts or neck tie pillows or other meaningful items for families that have lost loved ones.  It isn't the type of ministry I had planned when I attended seminary, but it brings all of my education and scattered life into a sense of wholeness. Here is a picture of the quilt I finished in time for Veteran's Day Sorry this got long, hope it is not TMI.  Debbie
