Being a novice, needed a crib batt and the only one I had was one of those real puffy ones. Used to do some hand qulting and they were fine. Afraid that machine quilting would put puckers in the top or back of my quilt. Took pressing cloths and ironed that batting flat. :x It quilted just fine and when I washed the quilt, it was puffy again. :-)

Also use Fabreeze around our cats and dogs....& the smoking DH :roll:
