    I am working on a Garden Twist quilt. I want to use a batting that is a little thicker than the warm and natural. It says to do the top stitching in the ditches. But,, I don't think the warm and natural will be enough to give it any definition. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Beautiful, the prettiest one I have seen! I have no suggestions, I am sorry to be no help! Honestly...I think the definition is already there.

    Lovely quilt!

    A poly batting will give you definition because of it's poofy-ness!
    Though you may be surprised how much there'll be with W+N.

    I use an 80/20 blend. I think the "puffy" comes from less stitching, but not sure....

    I like to use Dream Orient for that little extra.

    Use two layers of Waarm & Naturaal. Doubble weight, and it's still your first choice.
