I am ready to put the layers together of my second quilt ever and I was hoping someone could answer a question for me. I have noticed that on my first quilt (which has a black backing) the batting seams to be feeding itself through the material. I have white strands allover it. A quilter that I know says she doesn't use batting anymore she uses a piece of flannel. This sounds good but I like the puffed look of batting better. Is there anything I can do to the batting or any trick to stop the fibers from coming through.
This quilt has lots of navy in it so it will really show.
