    Hi! I am about to make a first quilt using Warm and Natual batting. Question is...do I use one layer or two? One seems awfully thin to quilt on but is two layers too much? Can I get some feedback as to what you use and how you like it? I will be machine quilting it. Thanks!!!

    Just use one layer. It will be just fine when it is quilted. If you want a quilt with a puffier look you need a different batting - Hobb's Wool or a poly batting.

    When I started out I thought the batting was too thin, too. But one layer works just fine.

    One layer.
    Two would make it very very heavy!!!

    One layer is plenty warm. If you're looking for puffy, you'll need a different batting. But don't let the thickness (or thin-ness, as the case may be) of W&N fool you. It's nice and cozy!

    Commonly we only use on batting. I have used two on several quilts, this week the Storm At Sea, w/n on the bottom and Hobbs Wool on top... mmmmm.... it looks great.

    I mostly use warm and natural and only use one layer. It's fine like that.
