    I use Warm and natural. My machine does weird stuff when I use anything else. It does not like poly.

    HI GemState.... I wouldn't try to use Hobbs 80/20. There is a scrim embedded in the batting which makes hand quilting a little harder. I heard from people who hand quilt to check out Quilter's Dream batting. I don't remember which one is the best for hand quilting.

    Hey ManiacQuilter, thanks for the heads up. I usually use Warm and Natural/White and find it to work well. Maybe I will just stick to what I have been doing.

    I hand quilted some Quilter's Dream Request weight. Like quilting thru butter!! The Hobbs Heirloom doesn't have a scrim but it's resin bonded. I really like it for machine quilting.
