    What a mess....I did a baby quilt and being new to FMQ I wanted to try it out...all my practice pieces I used a cotton batting. Is it me or is FMQ very hard with a poly batting? I have loads to rip out. GRRRR...

    I've heard it here that poly isn't good for FMQ but I use it frequently and don't have a problem - will look forward to more info on it from y'all. I do use the very low loft, thinnest I can find.

    The needle felted that Walmart sells if very even and about the cheapest best poly I've found.

    I have never had a problem, may it is just that particular poly batting.
