Is all batting fire retardent? My sister asked me this and when I went to Joanne's the other day the packaging does not say this. I use the bambo batting and am wondering because I also use it to make baby quilts. Does any one know?
tina, i don't know about fire retardant, but the poly stuff melts. i try to stick with cotton or wool gini

i didn't realize this was your first post, tina, welcome to ouur crazy group. this was a good question. below your post where it says "tags" you should type in fire retardant. it will be a good post to refer to. i don't think i can add tags to your post or i would do it for you.
so, tell us a little about yourself, we're pretty nosy here. what kind of quilts of do you like to make / gini
I dont think battings are fire retardent. But like Gini says the polyesthers melt. All of the natural fibers should be good for baby quilts.
Hi Tina and welcome to the nut house.... you are going to just love it here. most of us spend to much time here that we should be using to quilt. LOL

welcome to the group. The only batting I know of that is flame retardant is "Warm & Safe". Here's the blurb from the site:
"Warm & Safe is inherently and permanently fire retardant. By design, the fiber has a high silica content making the fire retardant properties built in from the start.
Warm & Safe will not melt, flow or emit toxic gases when exposed to heat and flame. Since Warm & Safe's fire retardant is inherent, it is non-toxic, non allergenic and chemical free."
It can also be found on Amazon.com
Hi, I just joined, I like to do all kinds of quilts, I have a son who has cp so I make him alot of quilted bibs, and blankets to lay on the floor. My sister wanted to know about the fire stuff, I took a piece of the bamboo batting and lit it on fire and it burned up. But I don't wrap him in the blankets he just lays on them. what are the points for under our names?
Thank you I will check out that site
You get points for each post. You also get points when someone replies to one of your posts. Nobody seems to know what they will be used for. We have laughingly said that the one with the most points will get a longarm.....
sounds good to me I'd like to have one of those. lol
Nana: We have laughingly said that the one with the most points will get a longarm.....
i might have to fly back east and duck tape your fingers together if that is the case. : ) gini
I'd say, you have nothing to worry about I have a reallllllllllly long way to go lol
oh, not your fingers, tina, nana's, she's a busy girl gini
You can come and tape my fingers anytime you like. Might be a little tough to quilt though...LOL>
Ok, you two - no taping of anyone's fingers! LOL I think Tina just might run away! Of course, she has been welcomed to the "nut house"...
Tina, you can see we have a lot of fun with each other, even if we are a bit nuts at times! Welcome to QCA and thanks for asking such a great question. Guess I'd never thought about this before!
