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,

I can't tell you how to adjust for two layers of WnN, but even one layer is too heavy for me so I expect that two will be really heavy.  Is the customer wanting the very flat, crinkled look, or is definition of quilting the desire.  Would a layer of wool fit for the job?  I really like wool and others have mentioned a layer of cotton with a layer of wool on top for wallhangings and definition of quilting.

I have used double batts of 80/20(cotton/poly) or 100% cotton with a wool overlay but also have used 80/20 or bamboo cotton with a overlay of poly. Warm and Natural batting is not my favourite because it is so dense and heavy. I've had several customers bring W&N batting that was so full of seeds/ debris it was breaking the thread.  If the goal is to produce a warm lofty quilt, then I recommend a batt of 80/20 or bamboo with a layer of Hobbs polydown or Legacy Pellon poly overlay.

I like warm and natural. Always have. Been using them since the beginning. Haven't done a double w&n in a long time, but she said it was too warn to sleep under. Ended up sending it to her sister in Alaska. Zeke.

What about a single layer of Warm & Plush?  That might be easier and still get the thickness she is after.
