I'm on an information gathering mission for my next quilt? Still working on my first (almost done). What difference does it make how close one quilts? I know some of the batting says you can quilt as far apart as 10 inches. I did a practice square a couple months back, stitching about an inch apart and the thing was so stiff. Is that what happens if you do a large quilt with stitching so close together? But, on the other hand, I have been told that if the stitching is too far apart you get bunching inbetween the stitching when it has been washed/dried.
