HELP...Please, Please, Please...and Thank You in advance...
I can not figure what type of "batting" SHOULD be used to make this, or if fusible fleece would work:
If you scroll down the page and look at the illustrations it seems lofty. Since this is not quilted together I am concerned that the whatever batting I choose will shift around with washings. The pattern merely calls for "batting". I bought a fusible batting at Joann's thinking it might work. Well I cut off a small piece and bound it between two pieces of scrap fabric from the project and it is WAY too stiff, it bounces back when folded and feels like cardboard. :shock:
The fabrics I am using are cotton flannel and minkee. They are plenty soft enough, but this pattern seems to be somewhat lofty. My instincts would have been a poly of some sort, but then what about the distance between quiltling that they require?
Thanks for any insight...I am not a very accomplished sewer. :oops:
