    Default Cannot remember word for certain kind of batting??

    Hi! I would love some help with remembering a word for a type of batting, although I'm not sure it is really a batting more like a lining. I came across it years ago, I think in an old quilting book, and it was perfect for a wall hanging I was doing that I wanted to lie perfectly flat. It is a medium weight muslin/linen type material, but there is a certain word for it and I remember I actually found it in a fabric store by that name. I am making another hanging as a gift and want to use it again...just cannot remember name and it's driving me nuts! Help?

    Years ago we used pellon which has become a multi product now. It may have been an interfacing type product that we just called pellon.

    The two that come to my mind are sateen or Osnaburg.

    Barb - I agree that it may be Osnaburg. For some reason it's always been difficult for me to remember because of the unusual spelling. I used it on some of my first wall hangings.

    From the description, I also thought of Osnaburg.

    Thank you all, and sorry for the delay, computer died and I have been offline for a while. YES it is Osnaburg!! I appreciate you all picking your brains, idk why that is a word I cannot remember. Last time I used it, I went into a local fabric chain store, and an older lady there knew what it was and they actually had it! I loved using it and it is perfect for this new wall hanging. Off to find it!
