A preview of what awaits you…

Molleton Hobbs Batting

“For most quilters, patterns and fabrics are their focus. Now, that’s not to say that patterns and fabrics aren’t important, because they are – they’re generally what entice quilters to create, and anything that inspires a quilter to create is a good thing!

That said, there are other elements of a quilt that are equally important, and these ‘behind the scenes’ elements can make or break a quilt.

Batting is one of these ‘hidden’ and important elements and it’s what we’ll be discussing here.

Batting (or wadding), which can be composed of a variety of fiber types, is a non-woven material that’s centered between a quilt’s top and back and it helps to define how a quilt or quilted project will appear, drape, function and wear.

Choose the right batting and the results are likely to be great; choose the ‘wrong’ batting and all the time (and money) invested in a quilt could be for naught.”
