I will have to purchase batting for my upcoming, quilt project, for which I am using both upcycled clothes as well as fabric from my inherited stash, and using up (I hope) all of the odd ball colors of thread that I have been given over the years.
Jo-Ann's has several types of quilt batting on sale:
1-rolls of batting in either polyester, natural fibers (whatever that means), or blends. these rolls are 50% off so $3.99-$29.99. I assume that I'd have to cut these down, as needed
2-precut to size (queen) needled cotton that won't bunch or beard. Also 50% off @ $
3-25 yard roll of natural cotton batting that is needle punched with a soft stablizing scrim binder (I assume that this is some sort of sticky selvedge) on sale 67% off @ $89.99
Any thoughts on what type of battling is best to use? These will be simple, home-crafted, utilitarian quilts with some effort to make attractive. I will straight stitch "quilt" so nothing fancy being done here. I appreciate your thoughts.
