I teach FMQ and I like Quilters Dream Batting. they have all different kinds, but I think their poly/cotton 80/20 would be great. it should not shrink or crinkle. that way you get the feel of cotton and sews like cotton, but is lighter and shouldn't shrink more then 10% if any. if you are using a walking foot, make sure to quilt top to bottom then turn quilt and go bottom to top and repeat till finished. if u FMQ try to use the same format to prevent quilt top and bottom from shifting. if it shifts one way, when you turn it, it will shift back. hope this helps.
why not try Soft and Bright by Warm Co. It is the polyester version and I don't get the crinkles.

I agree with the wiskers and darker nose.
OK, I'm dumb, what is a Dye Cottage? Can you use it for quilting or is it just for relaxation?
What an inspiration. Thanks for the pics.
I've made a lot of wall hangings and have never washed any of them. If you feel they need attention you could hang them outside to air or use a vacuum to go over them lightly.
go on google and type in betty boop fabric and all kinds of web sites come up
go to amazon or alibris (old and rare books)
Get a large pan of water and put ice in it and have the fan blow of it and that seems to help me when I want more that just using the fan.
I think any batting will "crinkle" if it's washed. But you probably won't be washing a wall hanging much anyway. One solution would be to heavily quilt the wall hanging so that it didn't crinkle as much.
my daily email stopped after I posted some pictures. So I set as a favorite on my menu bar and am able to see the postings easily that way. But it remains a mystery as to why it suddenly stopped and I can't really find anything on the QB that really explains it or gets it back. Oh, well....
When I get home from my vacation I plan on doing the Quilters Academy even though I can quilt. Sometimes we forget some of the steps so I thought I would start over from the beginning.
I just highlighted your statement "Moda Warm Memories layer cake by Kansas Troubles" and put it in google and came up with alot of web sites, so you might want to try that.
If you have pictures we would like to see what you've done.
