  • Re: pre-washing (common question I'm sure)

    I pre-wash when I am using polyester fiberfill but not when using cotton. I do it with poly fill because the poly fill won't shrink with the cotton fabric. With cotton fill, I like to let the fabric shrink with the batting for that old look.

    Joni, Quilter's Dream Puff is a high loft batting. However, high loft battings are difficult to machine quilt and are more suitable for tying. Batt-Mart is a great source for batting. They know about batting. Check them out for more information.

  • Batting

    I have only seen "low loft" batting. Is there anything else? I would like to have some higher loft batting for some projects, does anyone have any idea of others?
