    I was told that the results are a floppy quilt, and it is very expnsive for the good stuff. I prefer cotton myself or an 80/20 blend for a kids quilt.

    I am in the middle of making a quilt as you go with it now and I don't find any problems at all. I will say that I washed it like it recommends and that got rid of all the fluff (I forget the proper term) it did shrink and it took a bit longer to dry, but all in all I love it! It was on sale for half of what I pay for warm and natural here in Canada so I was happy to try it!

    I saw some bamboo batting at my quilting shop and it was only $11/meter.
    That is way cheaper than the W&N that sells for over $20!

    Kinkaju, I agree about the price here in Vancouver, it is just ridiculous! I watch for it when it is 50% off at Fabricland or Fabricana here in Richmond.
