    I'm making a quilt for someone who has requested that it be a "warm" quilt....meaning to keep warm. I usually put one layer of Warm and Natural or White....she said this is not enough to keep her warm. Suggestions.??? What do you do?

    I made one with an old fleece blanket for batting, that thing is toasty warm. Otherwise, I'm thinking wool.

    I recently did one with a cotton batt and a poly batt, it was ALMOST more than my machine could take but it looks wonderful, next time I'll use 2 layers of cotton.

    I'd use flannel for the backing - that will add a lot of warmth!

    Kathy, did you quilt it on your regular sewing machine or a LA?

    I did one for my late MIL that had the high loft batting with a flannel backing but we just tied it. I agree with the earlier post about using polar fleece as the batting--that stuff is really warm.

    I'm thinking maybe layer two batts - one Warm and Natural and a layer of Hobbs' Wool.

    I go for wool., If you can afford it. It's very price at my local quilt shop. But this a.m. I got a joann sale flyer and there is a 50% off coupon,One cut is considered one item . so figure our how much batting you need and one cut is 50% off. hope that helps.
