There wasn't anyone around to tell me that I shouldn't do any of these things for my first quilt, so that's what I did. :mrgreen: It was fortunate, in a way because I'm not afraid of trying anything, now. LOL!
    LOL! I love your quilt!

    Do you remember what brand of batting you used?
    Not for sure - it was either Mountain Mist or Fairfield - whatever Joann had - probably Fairfield - is that the one with a rag doll & teddy bear on their packages of fiberfil? That's the brand I used, but in batting, not loose fiberfil. :)

    Thank you. :) I know it's not especially pretty and the mistakes all but scream at you as soon as you look at it, but I like it, too. It's three years old and still being dragged around and cuddled, so it's served its purpose. :)

    I have doubled up using warm & natural on the bottom and low loft poly on the top. It gives more height to the area's plus its warmer. When its washed the crinkles do not lay flat they stay more puffed. I really like this effect.

    If you want a sample of Quilter's Dream Puff, I think Quiltbug.com offers free batting samples from the "quilter's dream" line. The samples come stapled all on one pamphlet, and are small, but at least it would give you a little bit of a feel for it.

    Our Linus group uses a high loft poly batting and I find it very difficult to quilt even on my Mega Quilter. But it does make wonderfully soft, fluffy quilts for the children. Have fun with it. Maybe you can do a test on a sandwiched piece before you quilt the entire quilt.

    thanks all for your help. linz
    Have made a few..best to tie them or do minimal stitch in the ditch...so they stay puffy.
