    Default Florida batting

    Good Morning,
    I need the name of a reasonably priced batting that is suitable for quilts that will be used in southwest Florida.
    The web sites on the net have not helped me very much, so I'm asking for advice. Thanks Kathy

    If your talking lightweight because of the heat (I live in Hawaii) I would check out Quilters Dream. It's thin and has a nice feel to it.

    My quilt shop carries it, so I would look around

    When I want a thin quilt, I use flannel instead of batting. My Grandmother, who was a quilter, used sheets because we lived in S. California and it was very hot there.

    Here in Houston (also super hot most of the year) I use a thin 100% cotton from Pellon with scrim. It's reasonably priced by the yard from Joanns, so it's easy for me to pick up as I need it.

    I would also suggest flannel. It's available in wide widths so no need to piece it.

    This is the one I generally use for quilt projects. I'm in Florida and no complaints from the recipients. Some of my quilts have two layers in them. One for the embroidery block and another layer of batting when quilted.

    Hi, I live in Miami and I use light weight batting also. I've also made without batting but a white sheet instead. All have worked for me.

    My favorite go to quilts have 80/20 batting. It can get cool with the AC on down here in FL.
