    Thank you Suz for the reply, I will keep this in mind as my youngest daughter loves the high loft and I was wondering about how to quilt it.


    I would love a tips section, too! Great Idea :D

    All in favor say TIPS!


    TIPS!!!!!!!! I was going to put them altogether, but the needle is stuck to my hand and won't come out..........we need the tips section, puleeseeeeee

    That's a great idea!!! A Tips section to the forum would be very handy for many of us. Please consider it.

    Today, I compressed the entire poly batting (approx. 50" x 60") before starting my machine quilting. I positioned the back first, pressed from the backing side, flipped it over (the backing stayed in place w/o pins) and then pressed from the top side with the top in place. Worked great!!! I then pin basted. It was a little stiff but manageable.

    Guys and Gals, it is working wonderfully. We are onto something here!!!! I am anxious for someone else to try this.

    I like to use a heavier loft for a baby quilt and this process should work in order to quilt by machine. So far, I have just tied them. Now I am wondering how hand quilting would work.

    Again, just thought you'd like to know. Suzanne

    TIPS,,,,,,,,,,,,,,WOW 2 great ideas on 1 thread, thats a double for your money. So to speak.
    There are so many wonderful tips, info, and guidance here. The tip section would be hit on alot, Like a mini library. And the batting info, is really a keeper. Thanks for your sharing. This is one I won't forget.

    This also works great if you have just taken any batting out of the package and it looks all wrinkled and such. Throw it in the dryer for about 10 minutes and it will come out looking beautiful. Yes, fluffy at that time but at least it is all the same fluff. This works for ALL kinds of batting and also shrinks it a bit. THEN, you can do the ironing. I think they need to invent something like a square iron with a 9" by 12" base? NO, not like the clam one with the hinge. Just a bigger based iron! Uh, lightweight of course! :lol:
