  1. I have a new wool duvet from Australia that I would like to use as batting in my granddaughters quilt, It's wool encased in 100% cotton cover. I have a Mille, will I have a problem quilting it if I use this as batting?
  2. batting costs

    Hello. I'm new to the site and longarm quilting. I'm wondering how you all charge for batting on an 80/20 roll of 96", when the quilt is smaller than 96"? Are you just charging per yard regardless of the extra that isn't used?
  3. I am about to put together an all batik (100% cotton) queen size top with a close weave 100% cotton backing ( much heavier then the top) for my son and wife called Circle dance. I have read many articles on batting and I am no wiser. However, with all my reading I have discovered that to make it cozy I need heIp. What would be the best batting for a floppy/flexable quilt that would be all season? Not to hot just warm. I guess I mean breathable. My son does not want it heavy either. Should I consider changing the backing? Attached a pic. Not using that red boader but a red and black print instead that is in the quilt. Thanks Barb
  4. I am quilt for a gal that is wanting to use 2 layers of warm & natural, need to know pros/cons. Do I need to adjust to a longer stitch length so that it does not create a tightness and cause it to pucker? All opinions welcome TIA, Diane on a Millie
  5. Hi Everyone I have a small longarm business and currently stock Warm & Natural and Warm & White batting. I would like to stock a poly for my clients but am at a loss which one to choose due to the choice out there. I would be grateful if you could let me have your thoughts on any you would recommend (or any that you would avoid). Many thanks in advance. Lynda
  6. Hi, I am moving my quilt studio to a storefront. I am considering as to whether I should sell quilt batting or quilt backings. If you sell batting or backings, do you find that profitable and what types of batting are your major seller and who do you get the quilt backing fabrics from. Thanks for all your input, Charlene

  8. This quilt will have a dark batik for the backing (the left side of the pic), off white muslin snowballs on the front with batik snowball corners (all the light and dark colors in the pic). Should I use black or off white for the batting? Thanks for your suggestions . 8-)
  9. what do you know about heatpress batting tape? Do you use it? Why or why not? Pros and cons? It seems like it would be great for using up all those leftover strips of batting. Thanks.
  10. What do you do with your left-over batting strips that are from 2" - 12" wide and several feet long? And all those plastic spools from the 2000-3000 yard cones? I don't want to waste anything. Maybe you have ideas I haven't thought of? 8-)
  11. i'm going to need a BIG piece of batting soon, and before i buy from an unknown seller, i want to ask if any of yall have the wide (120inch plus) batting for sale buy the yard?? i want to keep my money 'in the family'
  12. I am nearing the end of a roll of Warm & Natural batting and am researching what kind to buy next. I like the W&N just fine and I can get it at Joann's with a coupon, but I thought I would see what else might be out there, especially since I use the batting for tshirt quilts mostly. I wondered if a poly batting or a cotton/poly blend might make more sense and be more affordable for these types of quilts. What do you use? Thanks, Denise
  13. Linda thanks for the tip about my spool pin! I'm going to try and attach a picture of my little set up - good thing I asked too because a customer quilt came today and I am using clear monopoly! Tension seems to be ok - I tried using Jamie Wallen's method of tightening the top until the bottom thread pulls up, then loosening so that (hopefully) the thread locks towards the top of the quilt. I am using 40 wt. poly on the bottom and clear mono poly on the top. I am getting some bearding on the back - is this from the type of batting or do you think I'm doing something wrong? I cleaned and changed the needle out before starting...it's a 4.0. Superior recommends a 3.0 but I don't have any! Ack! It's running fine though other than this bit of bearding. I don't know what else it could be? It looks to be that quilter's fleece that comes from Walmart. I didn't ask the customer, but I use this all the time in my domestic for wall hangings and it feels the same. Another thing, I don't think she prewashes her fabric. I noticed this on her last quilt - I had a similar issue...but I'm wondering if the sizing is preventing the needle from going between the fibers and instead splitting some of them? Any help would be appreciated! I don't think she'll be unhappy with whatever I do, but I want to make her quilt look as good as I can! Thanks!!
  14. Hi all...I am very new to quilting on a longarm. And I have a question. I had to rip out some meandering stitching and am back at it. I changed my bobbin to match the top thread. It is Omni thread. Now that I am stitching again in the same place I ripped out the batting seems to be showing in the stitching on the backing of the table runner but not on the top. Any ideas on what the problem might be before I stitch anymore?? Thanks.
  15. If I use two battings on a particular quilt--one of cotton and the other of EITHER wool or 80/20--which goes next to the top and which next to the backing? I'd appreciate any input on this. Thanks in advance,
