    What is a good batting to use, but not too expensive?

    I started with poly batting and bought it when it was on sale. Not too expensive and it worked just fine for my quilts.

    I like the warm and white or warm and natural....it quilts nicely, and you can wash and dry it after it's quilted. But, it isn't as warm as the wool batting one I just finished.

    I have used warm and warm or warm and natural for a long time now. I always buy it when it's on sale at JoAnn's or when I have a 40% coupon.

    warm and natural. I usually get it when I have a coupon at JoAnn's. I like the way it kinda shrinks after it's quilted and makes the quilt look old.

    Hobbs 80/20 seemt to be the choice batting by many. I'm a warm and natural user. Regardless, I only get batting when it's on sale.

    I use symplicity batting because it's what I can afford plus it works great for my quilts.

    I always use warm and natural- like others said, buy it with a coupon at JoAnn, or Hobby Lobby.

    I grab Warm and Natural when it's on sale at Joanns, but I've used poly blends before, too.

    I think when it's on sale I get W&N queen sized for $12.

    I prefer warm and natural over anything.
