Winline News and Kudos!
August 2015Winline Batting was featured in Quilt Views an AQS publication this month.
Whether you are just getting started with your first quilt or are an experienced quilter with dozens or even hundreds of quilts under your belt, it is important to understand the role that your batting will play in your finished quilt. The type of batting you choose can and will affect the final look of your quilt even over the thread, fabric and the final quilting. It is the second most important element in a quilt—and it isn’t even seen!
Having been in the batting business for the past 11 years, I have seen a great number of batts available on the market today. I will be the first to tell you that no two battings are created the same. There are a good number of considerations to take into account when choosing a batt for your newly finished quilt top.
The first thing that you have to decide is what type of batting fill you want to use in your quilt…and you have options. The most common battings are cotton and cotton/polyester blends. Other materials used as fillers include sheep or alpaca wools, silk, hemp, bamboo, and bamboo/cotton blends.
Watch for our booth at the International Quilt Market in Houston this year!
