My dh wants his quilt to be thick like his grandmother used to make. Now we are actually from the north and she lived in canada. Unfortunatly she is no longer with us and I have never met her. I am not sure what he is talking about except that it is sounds like a comforter with the poly batting to me. He says that she used to hand quilt. Is there thick cotton? He keeps showing me like it looks like almost 1" or 2" thick.
