This is the third bolt of batting I bought in the last two years! I don’t know what I made with so much batting ! Oh, I remember…many quilted bags, and many shadow trapunto quilts…
I just bought a new bolt of batting for my future projects.It measures 84″x 55 yds.
I did not sell my house to buy it ! Because I did not buy it from abroad ( if you don’t know that shipping is so expensive for batting, lucky you!).
I am still lucky because for most of my quilts I can buy batting here in Romania.
It’s a thick fluffy polyester batting but it works wonderfully for many of my quilts.
It is so easy to quilt with flat batting- much less chances to develop creases during the quilting.
So, I don’t pay more money for flat batting, but I pay with much care and much work ! And many pins used for basting the layers (I don’t use safety pins) and sometimes with a few re-pinnings ! I know what I mean ! Because I made this quilt !
