My husband gave me a beautiful handmade quilt for our second anniversary (the cotton one). It is very thin, but really heavy. How do I do that? I've made blankets, but purposely made them fluffier (is that a word?) so I've used really thick batting. I made a quilt from a kit and I used a really thin batting, but it still seemed really fluffy. And it was light. There isn't much "quilting" on it though - I don't know if that is the correct way to use that term. Not much stitching across the top is what I am trying to say.
The quilt DH gave me is cotton, so I don't think the fabric is what is making it so heavy. Is there a batting that would be heavier? Or do you just do a lot of quilting so it isn't poofy? Please help this newbie! I'd really like my quilts to be thin and heavy like the one he got me. Thanks!
