    Has anyone used Dream Cotton Batting? Just want opinions on your favorite battings. What do you use, likes and dislikes.

    I am using a Fairfield 80-20 cotton poly blend right now. It is behaving very well. I also like the new bamboo blends, they feel very silky, luxurious.

    I have heard Dream (Request weight, I think) is great for hand quilting.

    I mostly machine quilt, and my favorite batting is Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon 100% cotton batting. This batting gets softer and softer over the years, until finally it feels like you are hugging a cloud. It also drapes beautifully and gives the soft, crinkled look that antique quilts have.

    I have also used Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and liked it. It has a little more loft than the MM Blue Ribbon and does not crinkle as much, for those who like a more modern look.

    I always use Warm and Natural. I buy by the 40 yd bolt and have it shipped to the house.

    My favorite is warm & natural/white. It quilts easily with no bearding.

    How much are the shipping charges if you don't mind my asking. Seems like the shipping would be high.
