    asking a quilter to mend is like asking picasso to paint your garage

    I used it for a 60 x 80 quilt and quilted it with my regular machine. It handled very well and I have no wrinkles so it seems to work with you very well.

    Seen some down at Mary Jo's in Gastonia NC it felt silky but was thinner than a low loft and totally different texture.

    How does it compare in price to other types of battings?

    I used the Bamboo batting in a queen size quilt for my niece. Her husband has allergies and I was told this batting was good for those with allergies. They love the quilt and commented with how warm it is. I also found it to be easy to work with. So that's my three "good" points for Bamboo batting, smile. Bamboo batting is my preference.

    I love it! I have used it in many quilts. It is so soft and quilts nicely. I get it on sale at JoAnn's or with a coupon.

    I have a pkg of bamboo batting but haven't had the chance to use it yet. Will be interested in the comments. Thanks for asking the question!

    I hand quilted my Avatar pic with Bamboo batting and I love it! It needles so nicely and I had no issues with puckering or stretching at all. I can also agree that it's very warm. I sat under that quilt for over a year and a half!! LOL

    But when completed, the quilt is no thinner than using the polyester batting.
    I tend to favour the bamboo batting more.
    I've been tempted to try the bamboo batting. Do you hand quilt or machine quilt?
