    I bought some 'Warm & Blend' batting at Joann's today. I've never used it before. It is very soft. Has anyone used it, and what do you think of it?
    Thanks.

    I agree, I have never heard of it. But I believe the Warm and Natural is made by Fairfield. Just got a postcard from them about a sale, I will try to call them and ask if this is a new prodcut and let you know on Monday.

    I googled and it looks like it is 50% cotton and 50% poly. Sounds interesting, but I haven't used it.

    be sure and check to see how close you have to quilt it, not all batts are created equal or for the same projects. the package should tell you. some have to be quilted up to every 2" some you have lots more room...like up to 10" apart. be sure and check. if it says quilt it every 2" and you quilt it every 10" you will get bunched up pulled apart batting inside your quilt.

    Thanks for that information. I will have to look on-line since this batting came off a roll and not in a package.
