I am currently working on my first hand quilted quilt. This will be a QAUG project. I'm fairly new at quilting so am learning new things all the time. I am currently trying to choose a batting for this quilt. I'm down to either a medium loft wool batting or an 80/20 cotton poleyster low loft batting. I've hand quilted samples of both and seem to have the same results with both. So my question is how do these battings compare in washing (can you even wash the wool batting or does it need to be dry cleaned). Which batting stands up to use better? What has been your expierences with these battings?
