About a month ago my sis and I went to a quilt show in Fort Smith. I heard a demonstrator telling some ladies that they should never try to hand quilt using Warm and Natural batting. I think about this often and now I just have to say it out loud. I use ONLY Warm and Natural and I ONLY hand quilt. Sure, sometimes it is a little tough to get the needle through, when you are near the seams, but that is what the little rubber pullers are for. Have you ever used this batting? Do you hand quilt like I do? I feel I should have said something to her.
