    Hobbs 100% cotton batting

    Does anyone use the Hobbs 100% cotton batting? I like the look a quilt has that has the Warm and Natural 100% cotton batting used. It seems like it is a heavier batting and it shrinks up nice to have a really old fashioned look. I have used the 100% cotton batting from JoAnns (not sure what brand) but it is a thinner batting and does not shrink up as much and thr final look, after washing, looks much thinner then when using Warm and Natural. I do like the Mt. Mist Cream Rose 100% batting from JoAnns. That has a heavier look to it yet after it has been washed and shrunk up. Now, has anyone used the Hobbs 100% batting and know how the finished look (after it is washed and shrunk up), compares to the Warm and Natural 100% cotton finished look? I have not tried the Hobbs cotton but it is on sale at Connecting Threads right now (30% off) and wondering if I should buy some for my stock, since it is much less expensive than Warm and Natural. Any thoughts?

    I love Hobbs Heirloom cotton batting.
    Strange thing is tho, Joanne's stopped selling it years ago, but I can find it at some Hobby Lobby stores. Otherwise I order it from Hancocks of Paducah.

    Hobbs Heirloom is 80/20 I believe. But Hobbs also has an organic all cotton that almost feels too good to put inside a quilt....feels like a baby bottom!! I love it for handquilting.

    Oops, didn't remember that Heirloom is the whole line, not just the 80/20. But the love of the organic still stands.

    I just looked on the Conecting Threads website. It says it is 100% unbleached, natural cotton. Tha must be what you are talking about. They also have the 80/20 and wool.

    Watch the Connecting Threads website. YOu can sign up for their email notices. Every once in a while they have a batting sale, so I would think it would be cheaper than ordering it elsewhere. Plus they always have free shipping with $50 or more on-line order so I always try to order when I have at least $50 of things to order.

    The Hobbsbatting.com site provides this number to call and ask for the Customer Service Department for the list of stores that carry their products. 800-433-3357

    Batt-mart.com carries Hobbs and several other brands. I have ordered Airtex from here and just love it for thicker softer fluffier quilts that I tie.

    Here is a link that has a section that compares different quilt batting.

    Ditto for me. I have to drive to Ottawa to Walmart to get this. Morris Walmart doesn't sell it. First time I used it I loved it.
