    Has anyone used terry cloth in a quilt? was thinking that perhaps as batting? I have some good quality terry cloth yardage that I don't know what to do with.

    Never used it for batting.... How about making some dish towels.. Do you embroider? I think that terry would make for a very heavy quilt...

    I have heard that some have used them for lining in potholders.

    I used it for backing on a quilt for DD when she was a little girl.

    I don't know if it is used, but I love the feeling of terry cloth. Perhaps for a smaller twin size of lap quilt it would be great; might make it too heavy if used in a large quilt, but maybe not. Lay it out and see how it feels. Looking forward to seeing pictures and hearing of your experiences in using this.

    I have made baby quilts with terry cloth as one of the blocks. I like to do them with different textured blocks and color. Or you can make some of those cute baby towel wraps with the hood in one corner.
