    pre-cut batting

    I hate cutting batting...or maybe I'm just lazy
    Have any of you tried pre-cut batting? It seems like it would go so well with all those daily deals I didn't resist. This web site has been tempting me. Are the prices way outta line? Or not so much?

    Maybe it really is time to try a qayg project.
    If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so surprised.

    HOLY MOSES!! That is expensive...I should start selling precut squares of batting...lordy lordy...

    I put 12" sqaure set in for the quilt I"m currently doing...I need 25 12" squares..so I would have to get 3 sets...it would cost me $30!! I buy warm and white batting by the bolt from hobby lobby with a 40% off coupon and it only costs me a little over $100 for the ENTIRE bolt of 90" wide batting...

      Yeah...I was afraid of that was hoping my math was wrong or that I was just reading it wrong.
      Rats! Oh well *heavy sigh* guess I'll have to go back to the cutting board

        I have a place on line that has all kinds of fabric and etc. I did find a pre-cut of W&Nat but the size is 34X45 and it is one piece. But the price is $3.95. I have bought from them and they have moda and kona and good muslin by the yard. Anything $35.00 and over ship for free.

        I have had no problems with them and they ship the orders very quickly.
        This probably wont help but it's a try!!

            Oooh I need one of those. I can get 2 or 3 baby quilts out of one.
            I don't know that i would buy precut batting. i don't like to cut it either but i'm not willing to pay out that much for the convenience. I can see where the occasional sewer might go for it. Not everyone delights in having "leftovers" the way quilters do.

              I am not entirely certain of the size (width), but I lucked out at JoAnns this past Monday night. Hubby and I were there and each had a 50% off special coupon - with the intent to buy batting. While looking around I noticed this HUMONGOUS roll and (if my feeble memory serves me right . . . since I'm too lazy to trek to the sewing room at this hour of the day) I think it is 120 inches wide. Now, it may just be 90 - I'll retract my thinking later if I find I'm drastically off base. Anyway, I KNOW that it was 15 yards - and KNOW that it was $6.99 per yard . . cotton/poly blend. I was able to check the end and the quality and decided that would suffice for the quilts I have planned for this year. Lo and behold when we got to the check-out it was already on sale for 50% off. So, for a bit over $50 I walked out with batting - enough to do my DGDs Christmas quilts this year. I really wish I'd gone back and picked up the other roll they had . . . next time!! And I still have two 50% off coupons good until the end of the month.

              For that savings/cost, I'll gladly pre-cut and sell batting.
              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                I just bought batting from connectingthreads.com (I'm pretty sure that is the name). They are having a huge sale on their batting from Hobbs and Mountain Mist. I'm not sure of the names as I'm still trying out different batting to see what I like most. But I could not go wrong. For $91 TOTAL, I got 3 queen size and 1 king size batting packs. The queen sized ones are 'fusible'. I really wanted to try it out and so far, I LOVE it. Not much loft, but that is okay with me. For me up here in Canada, that was a HUGE savings. Even at Fabricland here in town I could not get that much batting for the price. They have lots of fabric too - most are around $4/yard. I have not purchased any fabric from them yet though.
