When I started quilting I used polyester, but now it is almost always bamboo batting, soft, natural, and so easy to use.

GranChris said...

I use Warm and Natural, I like the feel and the weight.

Jen Barnard said...

I use polyester, because it doesn't shrink, it's warm, light and less expensive than other fibres. Also, the kind I have at the moment is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Chellie Tetlock said...

I am a faithful buyer of Warm and Natural. I buy it on Amazon prime for a third of the cost of my local Fabricland store that charges an arm and two legs for it. I absolutely love, love love it and have been able to do so much more Quilting now that I found it at such a great price. Also it is shipped right to my door in two days. Yay. I love my Warm and Natural. I have also used Warm and Plush, and Warm and White on a few occasions. They are both great as well. This is the best giveaway ever!!!

I use Warm and Natural batting. I've thought about trying others but end up staying with what I know.

Carol Andrews said...

My two go to batting are Warm and Natural or Warm and Natural. I buy it by the roll and choose the one that feels right for the quilt. I do all of my quilts from start to finish on a domestic machine and find the Warm and Natural works better if I'm doing a king size quilt!

Lena Pugacheva said...

I prefer cotton/poly for blankets and polyester for wall quilts.

Lee said...

I use warm and white! thanks!

Marly said...

My LQS sells two sorts: cotton and polyester. My first purchase was polyester which was a big mistake. Now I only use cotton, but don't know anything about other available types. As there's no other option I've never taken the effort to investigate further. It's probably time I did!

KaHolly said...

I go between Warm and Natural and Hobbs. I confess, I shop the sales!

Beth Strand said...

I use Hobbs heirloom. Bethastrand@gmail.com

Emily said...

When I use batting, it's almost always Warm & Natural. I make a lot of kids quilts, and I back them with fleece and don't use batting. It's a really nice weight, it makes them even softer & cuddlier, it's very economical, and I find quilts easier to layer this way.

PegP said...

My go to's are warm & natural and Hobbs 80/20.

Nancy Lewis said...

I use Hobbs 80/20. I hand quilt, and this is so easy to sew through.

Warm and Natural and Warm and White are my usual battings.

Karen Graham said...

My favourite batting is Warm & White, for the clarity it brings to white and light pieced fabrics.

annmarie said...

I use Warm & Natural most of the time. I make lots of wall quilts & table runners & I like how the weight lets them lie flat.

Pine Point Cathy said...

Like so many others, Warm & Natural is my go-to batting choice!
basaran.family@rogers.com

Carol S. said...

You've had some amazing giveaways here...thank you! I use Warm and Natural most of the time.

Brenda M said...

I have been buying Warm Company packaged batting in the smaller sizes and find it much better to use than the by the yard

babiesdoc said...

I usually use cotton (warm and natural or warm and white)
I really like warm and plush -- it is almost as good as 2 layers of batting but, a little harder to find locally

I recently use a silk batting -- it feels sooo wonderful but is twice the cost and not something I would use for kids quilts. I used it on a quilt made of vintage kimono pieces. on that it was worth the upgrade.

I normally use Warm & Natural.

Natureluvr57 said...

I love Warm and Natural cotton batting but really really want to try the Wool in the future after reading how nice it is to quilt. For my placemats, mug rugs, etc I don't want thick batting and I buy some thin stuff my local shop sells for inside quilted jackets that was so popular but it's polyester I believe. I would prefer a low loft cotton instead but I haven't found one that's thin yet.

Lori Smanski said...

when i first started quilting, i had no idea what batting to use, so i would pick what ever was on sale. I have really come to like Warm and Natural. So that is the only thing I use now. :)

Lori said...

I use cotton mainly. Warm and White and Warm and Natural. I've even used Fairfield batting.

Kathy said...

warm and natural cotton batting - the only batting I ever use

Suzie's Armoire said...

Years ago my husband bought a whole bolt of Warm and Natural (because he had some crazy non-quilt project in mind). He never did his project, so I've been using up the batting little by little.

Skootchover said...

I use warm and natural the most, but have fallen in love with warm and plush.

Anne Simonot said...

I have been using Hobbs 80/20 because it was easily available & a bargain with a coupon (got it at Michaels). There's never any there lately, though, so may need to go back to Warm & Natural. annesimonot@sasktel.net

Tiffany said...

I use a fair amount of 100% cotton batting, but I also love using an 80/20 blend. I recently started using a new 60/40 blend. I love quilting with cotton, by I've always heard polyester is warmer and it gets pretty child where I live.

Rebecca said...

My favorite is the Warm & White, but the Warm & Natural is easier to find without shipping.

Laura said...

If I am doing something that I want to have "structure" I use warm and white or warm and natural. If I want something with drape, I use hobbs 80/20. I recently had a quilt done by a longarmer and she used an 80% cotton/20% wool bat which I also really loved the drape on. Still experimenting on the batt front. Do not like poly as it's too slippery!

Allison CB said...

Hi! I usually use a cotton batting - but I like the look of overlaying silk on top of cotton so i am moving towards that option!

Julie.mirdoch@shaw.ca

Kris said...

I like cotton or 80/20 but would like to try wool and more. Cotton works so well when you freemotion on domestic because it helps stay in place and feels soft and pliable when done.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

The batting I use depends on the quilt. I mostly use 80/20, or Warm and Natural, and sometimes wool. I just finished quilting a queen size Fractured quilt using a W&N batting--love the drape!

Warm and Natural.

Liz F said...

Normally 100% cotton but I recently used an 80/20 so I'm looking forward to seeing the difference after the quilt is laundered.

VickiT said...

When I bought my first embroidery machine in late 2003, I took a class to learn my machine and then we did a fun class which was a calendar wall hanging. We used Warm & Natural batting for that and it's the only kind I have bought since. I did take a Beginner Quilt Class and I wasn't told ahead of time to bring batting on one of the classes so I had to buy it from the shop I was taking the classes at. She sold some type of wool batting and I did not like that at all, mostly because it had large chunks of material in the batting and those left obvious lumpy spots in the project. I will stick to the Warm & Natural because I know the product and have loved everything I made using that so far.

Tu-Na Quilts said...

I knew it!! Mystery solved...I finally figured out how you get so much accomplished--you are on day 9 of a weeklong giveaway meaning that your weeks have more days in them than mine!

I've only ever used Warm and Natural (except a couple of early on quilts that I used packaged poly when there wasn't much else available). The Warm Company has great consumer service. I had a problem with my last package of batting and they were so kind and courteous and offered to replace it. I just sent it off in the mail yesterday and looking forward to getting the replacement.
