    Has anybody ever used the Hobbs batting from Connecting threads? If you have is it good? The only batting I've used is the bambo,and the cotton batting from Joanns. Connecting threads has it on sale right now.

    I use more Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 than anything else. I know I'm ordering from them during the sale!

    I know when I took a class on machine quilting the batting recommended by the instructor was Hobbs 80/20 and it was very nice to work with.

    i try to always take advantage of the sales at connecting threads for batting- especially since i can order enough to get free shipping.
    i love hobbs batts- and the ones from connecting threads are no exception. read the descriptions-
    some need to be quilted every 2"-4" some allow up to 10" between quilting lines- choose the right batt for the job.
    if you've been ok with the batts from joannes you will probably love the ones from connecting threads

    I'm partial to Warm & White but sounds like it's a good batting. I know everyone likes different ones. Try it and see if you like it. It's never a better time than when it's on sale :)
