  • Best batting

    I used 100 percent ployester on my first quilt. It puckered some, and it's too war for a year round quilt. Any suggestions on which batting to use for my next one? I want to keep shrinkage to a minimum. I'm thinking 100 percent cotton will shrink, but I hear it's best for a year round quilt...

  • Re: Let's talk batting

    I usually use Warm & Natural 100% cotton batting as well. I think it's the best on the market for the money. But last weekend JoAnn's had queen size packaged batting (cotton) on sale for $14.99. I think it was Pollen brand but I'm not sure. I wish I didn't throw out the package. I...

  • Batting

    I am writing this post for my son who spent 2 hours debating batting with me yesterday. (He does not quilt). He believes that the thicker the quilt, the warmer the quilt. Finally I told him I would post a question here so he could see the answers for himself. Which is warmer low loft cotton batting or...

  • Re: What is your favorite batting?

    Kathy I always use 100% cotton batting. I think it's cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. I think it's also easier to quilt. I tried polyester once...never again. It just didn't work for me. I have never tried bamboo; I just won't spend the money on it. I would rather spend...

  • Re: Batting Seam Tape

    Flojo, I purchased my batting tape at a small quilt shop after watching the store owner "tape" batting together for a quilt. I was amazed at how well it worked! After she sandwiched the quilt I couldn't see the seam and I was sold! I have used this on numerous occasions and love it. The...

  • Wrinkle Releaser

    While long arm quilting, there are times when the batting or quilt top becomes wrinkled from being rolled. I spray them with a little wrinkle re-leaser and smooth out the wrinkles before quilting to avoid the wrinkles from being quilted into the quilt. The product also reduces static electricity that...

  • recycle mattress pads

    Here's an article I wrote about my mother's quilting idea. When my dad had cancer and was bed ridden, she recycled old mattress pads into bed pads. This would make a good service project for older girl scouts working on their Gold Award.

  • RE-purpose a fleece throw

    Has anybody used a purchased fleece throw as backing for a wintery quilt? If so, did you also use batting?

  • Left-over batting pieces

    What do you do with your left-over hunks of batting? Do you sew them together to use in larger quilts? I have made many small wall-hangings and table runners/mats... But the pile in the corner is starting to grow!!! Also, I have made "quilt as you go" quilts, and the batting only has to be...

  • adding to a pattern

    Would like to know if it would change the look of a pattern by adding extra batting to leafs. I have been making leaf quilts and was wondering if I could put batting behind each individual leaf, add the leaf veins and any other embellishment I wish, trim the batting close to the outline of each leaf...
