What a Dream.....

I have been quilting for over 25 years and have tried many kinds, lofts and brands of batting; but after making my daughter's quilt for her Wedding last summer I fell in love with this batting.
It is Quilters Dream “Request” Poly.
You would not DREAM it was Poly.
It is the thinnest loft which has always been my favorite. As the label says, ”wonderful light weight, exceptional for hand quilting” Yes, it is like stitching through butter!!

Do you think I have enough? Little T loves it!! BTW notice his shirt says “Big Brother”, yes, we are expecting our second grandchild in September!









“Just for fun” I have put two polls on my side bar about batting.
Inquiring minds (mine) would love to know what you use and like!!

Have a happy day!

  5. What a fun picture. As soon as I saw Little T's shirt in my reader I knew I better click on over to see what's going on. Congratulations on another grandbaby.

    I started using that fluffy polyester batting because that's what seemed to be in our comforters. We loved the fluffy snuggly feeling of the comforters so that's what I used. Then I found out about cotton. I was so happy to see how easy it is to quilt. I've heard that Bamboo is fun to work with but I haven't tried it yet.

  9. Laugh at me as you will, but I really like the feel and weight of cotton batting. I like the way it washes up and "scrunches" up too. I've not yet used poly but for my Snowbird friends, I may have to use your recommendation :)
