A batting for any need

Date Added: 05/25/2016
Hi Folks :-)
Several years have passed now, since we decided to dedicate a full section of our website to patchwork and quilting. This section has gradually been expanded, almost automatically to the whole universe of creative sewing, so full of variations and inspirations!
Battings are definitely among the key elements in this universe, although they're also the ones causing more doubts to our creative minds ;-)
And that's quite normal, honestly, for the offer of battings - not only in the USA, the home country of quilting - is remarkably wide. So, just to clear some doubts, we're reporting some fundamental facts here, starting from a few general suggestions.

The most common doubt is usually "how to choose the correct batting?".
Thinner battings - such as those from Hobbs, in cotton, wool, silk, or synthetic fiber, up to 4-mm thick - are easy to work and highly versatile: they are suitable virtually for any kind of quilt, bedspread and other project, such as bags, shoppers, table runners and even wall panels.
They also share a complete suitability both for hand and machine quilting.

This same characteristic is also the "feather in the cap" of the battings from Freudenberg. They're mostly made of soft, state-of-the-art polyester, woven with extremely thin threads, which are then "bond" with special resins, to prevent any kind of fiber migration. This makes these battings highly resistent, even to "strong" washing and centrifuging, thus ideal for those quilts that you plan to wash frequently and not always with cold water, such as your bed quilts, or the quilts created as play carpets for your little ones.

Iron-on battings also deserve some words :-)
Being iron-on, they let you save a whole lot of hours spent in tacking!!! Moreover, they're perfect for craft projects that go beyond creative sewing, such as cartonnage with fabric: for example, to fill the upper side of boxes, or for the back of your stitched works, when you want to frame them without glass.
