    Wadding

    Hello everyone. I have been doing patchwork for about 3 years and have made several cushions and a beanbag, but I have only quilted a couple of items as I wasn't very good at it. I know practice makes perfect but I get frustrated. I am now making a quilt using my scraps which is 100% cotton can anyone advise me what wadding is best to use as I think this will help when I do my quilt as I go. Speak soon

    I use Quilters Dream. It comes in a lot of weights and fiber contents. I get the thinner cotton because it's so hot here.

      Quilters Dream is my favorite too. Love the drape and softness of it.

        I use Hobbs 80/20 for everything. I knew when I saw the thread title "wadding" it must be someone from Europe.

          I changed recently to Tuscany s 100% wool batting and I love it! It's lightweight but warm and it shows the quilting very good

              Here is an excellent video describing different battings. It is very detailed.

                I've used warm and natural cotton batting - it works decently well for a mainstream batting, and Joanns often puts it on sale.
                I'm supposed to be getting some quilters' dream orient to play with... we'll see how it goes.
