lindsey asked, "So I am making my first quilt and I need someone's advice on what type of batting to use. Sounds like a silly question but I just don't know.... Cotton? Polyester? Can you tell me what kind of results I would get or what you prefer to use?"
lets first say, i am no expert at quilting. i am self taught and have learned by trial and error. i have tried both cotton and polyester batting. my own opinion, cotton. it is a more natural product. it gives a quilt more of a vintage look. i think it feels better and is more cozy to curl up in. to me, it gives the quilt a better shape. i will always use 100% cotton from now on. i like the brand "Warm and Natural". You can usually find it at Joannes or any fabric store.
happy quilting and happy friday, to those whose friday it is! :)
p.s. i want this book so bad. so inspiring. you can read more about it here. i miss my camera, bad.
