    Simplicity traditional loft batting

    I noticed it was extremely inexpensive on sale at joann's and wondered why??? Is it awful? Maybe they are trying to get rid of the stock they have. Thought I would check with all my quilting friends here on the board to see what you think.

    I usually purchase warm n natural, but with the increase in prices I'm not against giving a different brand a try.

    I used their poly one ages ago once as I bought it on sale somewhere and I found it patchy and stretchy so I went back to my Quilters Dream - Blend or Poly, depending on the project... I think as in all things, you get what you pay for.

    I use it in some of my Project Linus quilts. It is your basic batting, and is patchy and stretchy, but it works out fine when I use it with flannel quilts. It is on sale now at Joann's, so you could always try one out to see what you think. Let us know!

    I tried it and thought it was extremely thin.It would probably be ok for a summer weight quilt but not for warmth

    Thanks for your input. I had a feeling it was too good to be true. Seemed a bit odd to be soooo much cheaper then all other battings.

    Tomorrow off to buy warm n natural.
