Utica, NY(Zone 4b)

Well it's quilt time for me.... and I want to purchase batting in bulk.... I don't really care for the poly stuff as it get caught in my sewing foot =(

Is there a batting you prefer? How 'bout a place I can get it in bulk/by the roll? of course a good price would be nice but Iwill need it anyways!

I'm trying a disappearing 9patch this year =) Wish me luck!!

Hi Jane so glad you are here. I love D9P in fact just getting ready to start another one in blue, yellow and white. I think most in here prefer Warm and Natural batting. JoAnn's has it either by the package or by the roll. Watch for sales or coupons as it will be 40-50% off then.

Pictures please we love show and tell.

I use Warm & Natural from JoAnns and buy it by the roll. A couple times a year it is over 50% off.
And check the web pricing which is sometimes lower than the store. And then you usually get free shipping.

I never purchased it before so I could not tell you a good price from a bad price.... All I know is I have 3 quilt tops waiting to be finished...basic squares...nothing fancy as I am a beginner =)

Joanns carries it and you can get great deals if you can wait if not i think it is around the 20 dollar mark for a queen size with no coupons or sales.

Any time you can get Warm and Natural for half price (it is usually around $10 a yard) is a good day. I buy it by the roll too. Or at least a 10 yard minimum which goes a long way for me...

Do check online. If your news paper doesn't have the coupons, and you aren't signed up for them from JoAnn's, let me know I usually have extras.

I bought an Ott light from JoAnn's online. It was 50% off plus another 15% off total order which more than covered the shipping.

I haven't maybe if you have a JoAnn's close you can look at it in person before ordering.

I use warm & natural or warm & white, buy by the roll when on sale. Or when I have a 50% off coupon, and if your store does not have a roll when it is on sale they will order it for you and you get it at the sale price!!

I only use 100% cotton batting. Usually it's Warm and Natural or Warm and White. I make all my quilted pieces with all cotton....

I would never waste my $$$$ on a poly batting. The polly does give you the "fluff" but does not wear well. And most long arm quilters won't even quilt with a poly batting.

That jacket that I loved so well. I made the mistake of using poly batting, (over 30 years ago) bit by bit it worked its way through the fabric. I was forever clipping off the "nerds". I swore off poly then.

Poly also disintegrates. After 10 years you are left with 2 pieces of fabric & no batting. And before it is all gone, you get the lumps.

Yup only cotton for me too. I too made a quilt in high school with poly and after 2 washes the quilt was a lumpy mess

Uh..OH... bad news for me as I have used poly many times. I do have Warm and Natural now so maybe I can redeem myself!
