Heather Thomas teaches you how to select the type of quilt batting that will work best for your quilting projects. The proper batting is very important for a quilt, based on the form of stitching that you will be doing. When buying batting, you should consider what it’s made of and how quickly it shrinks when laundered.

Choosing the fabrics you are going to be using can be really fun! However, choosing the batting you’re going to use can be very confusing. There are so many different types of batting out there making it often difficult to determine the right batting to use! Heather Thomas expresses several helpful tips for making the process of choosing the right quilt batting to use much easier. It’s understanding how the batting is going to be effected by the type of stitch that you do, how the batting is going to warm you, if that is what you are looking for, and how it’s going to look after its been laundered if the quilts that you’re making with it are going to be washed because they will be greatly used.

A good batting manufacturer is going to tell you that information so that you can use whatever it is you’re making, the way it is intended to be used. See how making these decisions regarding your quilt batting can be fun and enjoyable with these helpful tips!
