Shop Talk: A Simple Guide to Quilt Batting with Jamie

When I first started quilting, I really didn’t know much about batting. I had just finished the top of my very first quilt and was excited to set out to purchase what was needed for the inner layer. I went to my local box store and picked up a bag of polyester batting. At the time, I didn’t know that there was any other batting types available, but I sewed my quilt, hand quilted it myself and gave it to a friend who was moving away. I wasn’t sure why it didn’t look like the quilts I had seen elsewhere as mine was “fluffier” than...
