    okay so here goes.
    >>i don't like to touch batting.<< :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
    there i've said it. i think it feels creepy. i can hardly wait to get the sandwich secured to the point where i can apply the binding and trim off the excess batting so i don't have to touch it. then i will go back and do more quilting. am i the only person here who feels this way, or the only one who will admit it??? or maybe i really am a weirdo!!! :oops: :( :oops: :cry: :oops: :?

    don't hate me because i'm strange.

    Mmmm ,all batting, or just certain kinds? You could use something else. flannel or buy inexpensive blankets.

    I have a daughter who won't touch paper bags. She said they feel creepy :P

    how about wearing either cloth or rubber gloves? And don't worry, between all of us, we could write a huge book on all our foibles and oddities...ahhahahahaa... :) :) :) my personal list is huge and could have a chapter all my own.

    I'm with you, the only batting that doesn't bother me the way it feels is warm & natural cotton batting. Anything with polyester is really rough on my hands.

    The cotton warm and natural feels okay to me. By the way, it goes by some other name now - don't recall what it is.

    I agree that the polyester battings feel weird. The kind that is sort of smooth is okay, but the fibrous ones - it's nice to get them covered up.

    What are they called, anyway?
