    Most of the time I use 2 layers of cotton batting...I haven't notice a significant difference. :D:D:D

    I checked the heat protection when I did my daughters potholder, and I used 1 layer of cotton batting along with the insulbrite. Had no problems with my machine due to the use of insulbrite...but then I have seen a machine the same model as mine sew together fur pelts like it was nothing....Can you imagine the "lint" from that?? lol

    When using Insulbrite, do less quilting. The more quilting the less heat resistant it is due to all the needle holes and thread.

    I've used Insulbrite many times with no problems. I put it in my place mats and hot pads. I use one layer of Insulbrite and two layers of Warm N Natural. It does keep the heat out nicely, however, there is condensation on the table when you pick them up. Insulbrite does have a top and a bottom. The side where you can see the silver stuff crinkly is the top and this is the side that should face the heat source. One thing I really like about Insulbrite is that it makes your item less flimsy. Place mats sit flat on the table and keep their shape well.

    I've also used the quilted and non-quilted silver ironing board stuff. The quilted stuff is great, but can be difficult to quilt through because it's so thick. If I'm using just the silver stuff, I sandwich two layers of batting in between the silver stuff with the silver stuff on the outsides. Have made many pot holders this way. All of mine are now very thin on the inside after repeated washings, but still keep the heat out!

    I've been using insulbright for years in pot holders and love it. Never had a problem with my machine and I only use a single layer, by itself. Mine seem to work just fine.....
