My New Quilt Batting, Part 3

Here is the last official batting post.  I will share other pieces as they are finished, but I think you can see that I did lots of testing before choosing these battings.  Did I mention that I do NOT get endorsement fees?  And also let me say that Quilters Dream and I are not responsible for an individual's use of any of these battings.  These are my opinions and Quilters Dream has very reasonable and precise recommendations for use of any of their battings.  In simpler terms, individual results may vary--as with most everything in life!

This is a small wallhanging I made to benefit Wiawaka Holiday House in Lake George, NY.  Click here to learn more about this great place:

The pattern is from Katrinka Designs.  Machine appliqued (yes, I do know how!), hand and machine quilted.  This gave me a chance to try both quilting methods on the QD Poly Request.  Quilters Dream does recommend the Select loft for machine quilting, but I had more hand quilting to do than machine and decided to try both on Poly Request.  I'm very happy with the results.

A detail of the center.

So there you have it.  Whew!  That was a big decision!  Hope it helps those of you also looking for an alternative to your old batting.

Blissful hugs,


  1. Yes, don't you just love the Quilters Dream batting! I have used it a few times and always had good results.

  2. Thanks for your efforts, Sharon. I love seeing your projects!



Don't be shy! Leave me a's so lonely without hearing from you!
