    batting question

    I'm fairly new at quilting and have used only Warm and Natural batting. Joann's is having a sale and the Warm and White is cheaper in the size I need. Are there any real differences in these? If so, what? Thanks

    They are the same batting. Just one is the natural color of cotton and the white has been bleached. HTH

    When in doubt of what color batting to buy when it on sale and both are the same price... I will buy white as I can use it on most all my quilts.. The natural color when I have white in the blocks sometimes shows and shades the white fabrics.
    As posted earlier Warm and White is the same as Warm and Natural in content and construction , just one is bleached cotton.

    Just be aware that both types can shrink. I always wet and machine dry my Warm and Natural twice before using it in a quilt. I also prefer the white--seems to be a bit thinner and also does not show thru light fabrics.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I always stick with Quilters Dream batting because there is so little shrinkage!
