  • Beginner - Is 1/16 loft too thin for a baby quilt?

    Making a baby quilt and I want to use 100% cotton batting, with as low of a suffocation risk as possible. It's a crib sized quilt. Thank you! This is my first quilt, and I really appreciate any guidance. :) P.S. I am using a regular sewing machine, so it needs to be able to roll and fit in the machine...

  • batting... well... nontraditional batting...

    This is a question rather than advice. I have a fairly large and really nice weight piece of linen. I am a really hot-natured sleeper, and need the weight more than the warmth. I am wondering if anyone here has ever used linen as the batting for a quilt. There it is. If you have, can you comment? Or...

  • Re: Double batting?

    Looks like I'm about a year behind with this dilema :) I'm debating batting for my first queen I plan to quilt on my domestic. You made some very good points. I love the drape of the Nature-Fil Rayon/Cotton, but this makes me a little concerned about shifting if I double it. With a price to match...

  • stuffing or batting?

    Hi, this is my first foray into this so please pardon my lack of knowledge. Long story short, I suffer from a neurological disease and am extremely sensitive to all chemicals, synthetics and smells. I have to move out to the desert for sort of a permanent camping trip but I have one problem- an all natural...

  • Dealing with monofilament thread

    I like using monofilament on special quilts, but I ALWAYS have issues with the thread unwinding while I sew and getting stuck underneath the spool, causing stretching and breaking. I took a square of batting about an inch larger than the base of my spool, cut a hole in the center, and placed it on the...

  • Re: Pellon Nature's Soft batting

    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...

  • Llama batting

    I am new to quilting. I have been spinning for awhile. I have some llama fleece that will not make a soft yarn. I was thinking about using it for batting. Has anybody done/used llama batting? Do you think it would be a good batting? Thank you, Bobbie Joe

  • Re: I'm NEW -- Time-sensitive advice please on applique

    Nana, Thank you SO much for your prompt response! That's so reassuring! Have you trapunto'd also and does that hold up, too? I have heard about two ways to trapunto: 1) sew applique, then cut the back of the fabric and insert extra batting, then stitch the hole closed 2) sew two layers of batting...
