Choose the Right Batting for Quilted Garments

Threads magazine - 122 – Dec. 2005/Jan. 2006 Issue
Article Image
Choosing the right batting for your quilted garments can make all the difference. With a properly chosen batting inside, your quilted clothes can look modern, trim, and chic-not as if they were made from coverlets or pot holders. Of course, no single batting type suits every project. Your first consideration should be the style of the garment. Do you want a puffy, pillowy jacket; a fitted, tailored piece; or a garment that drapes softly? Mary Ray shares her recommendations that will help you match your batting to your project, no matter what style you’re making. Mary also includes pointers on assessing battings yourself so that you can experiment with some of the many choices that aren’t listed here.  From Threads issue #122
