    Has anyone tried the Dream Green batting? I normally use Warm & Natural but the LQS was out so I grabbed a package of the Dream Green. I used it last night and I really liked it and I was impressed out many plastic soda bottles can be used instead of sitting in a landfill. I'd definitely buy again.

    I use it often, especially kids flannel quilts.

    i've used it in 5 or 6 quilts- it is nice to work with, washes up nice- and has proved to be durable-
    the only down side was when i had a quilt with a white backing- i wound up not using it because it did cause a green tint to the backing- but for colorful kids quilts it is great.

    I have used it in several quilts. Hand quilts nicely and does not beard.

    Does it say anything about it being easy to burst into flame?
    I'd be afraid to put it in anything that a kid might get too near an open fireplace, or to an adult's cigarette.

    I like it a lot. It's soft, drapeable, easy to quilt. The only downside I've found is not being able to use it with light colored fabrics in the top. I also like the recyled concept.

    funny you should mention. I posted a picture of first quilt I used it in last night. The backing is white with small dots. I noticed the slight tint afterwards but it looked neat with the front of the quilt.
