Which Batting For A Dark Backing

Recommended Posts

I have a quilt to do for a customer with a dark navy backing fabric. I want to avoid the pokies issue and have two kinds of battings here but don't know which one will give me the best result. One is Warm and Natural, one is a packaged Hobbs Heirloom Premier 80/20. Ive never used this packaged batting on the longarm, the package says its "lightly needlepunched and resinated with a soft resin"...is one a better choice than th other? Can't use a black batting as its a sampler quilt with lots of yellow, white and of course navy.

I never ever had pokies in eight years of quilting until my Jared Takes a Wife quilt...I used Pellon 100% natural cotton batting.  I don't think I'll order it again either.  I'm also a fan of Quilter's Dream poly battings.  The quilting looks so great with them and I have yet to have any kind of poking or bearding.  I also like Hobbs 80/20 but Quilter's Dream is my first choice.

I've never had pokies with Warm & Natural off of a roll.  I  have had problems with pre-packaged W&N, specifically queen size batts bought from JoAnn's.  Like the others, I love Quilters Dream products.
