Do you have any scraps of the batting? You could hand quilt a sandwich, measure it, wash it and machine dry it, then measure it again to see how much it shrinks and whether or not you get any distortion or bearding.
That is an excellent idea. I will be trimming enough off before I bind it. I will give that a try. Thanks! You guys are great! I would have worried about this for months:)
