I used flannel in my quilts, but in the next ones I might try batting, we live in Florida though, so I don't know if I should or not. Is it too warm? And from what I saw some you don't have to? Thank you in advance for sharing your advice on this subject. :)
Proud Owner of a Necchi Supernova BU, it sews magnificently! ♥
I'm in Phoenix, use Warm & Natural without prewashing, and have been very pleased with the results...not too warm, except in the middle of the summer...
Pam, I live in North Florida and use warm and natural batting. Its not heavy or to warm like a comforter would be. I also use flannel for batting in my baby quilts sometimes. Susan
Thank you both! I am thinking the flannel wasn't quite heavy enough, and I want something a little thicker this next quilt, so I might try the warm and natural. :D Thanks again for the valuable feedback and experiences! :D
I do not prewash batting, but I do unroll it and let it fluff for a day or so before I layer my quilt. i do prewash flannel for backing because it shrinks irregular.
That sounds like a plan! Good advice, thanks Flo!
I do not prewash batting, because I purchase batting that won't shrink and batting doesn't come with the seizing that's on fabric. I can handle all batting without any allergic reactions.
Thank you Marianne! If I go with batting on t he next ones I'll be sure to get some tat doesn't require prewashing. I think that would just be a pain to deal with....
prewashing batting depends on the look you want.
