    I was lucky enough to find a quilt at a rummage sale. Here is the original post: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-151934-1.htm I am working now on taking it apart - but this is what is inside. It looks like the batting was balled up and intentinally put in this way. I have never seen anything like this before.

    I am taking it all out and will work with what I know (new batting as a full layer, quilting and a new binding) but wanted to ask about this inside.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like each section was filled with poly fill

    Not seeing the front, I am not sure what they were trying to create. I did see a quilt where the lady wanted her flowers to have an extra depth.
    She quilted around her flowers, then stuffed extra batting in little slits in the back and then she whipped stitched them closed. It was really neat when she finished.

    I would remove all those little "balls" of batting and quilt with regular batting and a backing. JMO. It is a pretty quilt.:)

    I agree about it being a biscuit or puff quilt. They were popular back in the 1970's.

    I would love to see a bigger picture of the whole front of the top. Love the colors and the pattern. Not sure what to think of the batting though. I have one that I bought at a Thrift store for $1. The batting is so very old! I can't even begin to think about washing it without it falling apart. The bad (good) thing is the kids LOVE it. I've came in several times and someone is asleep wrapped up in it. Its one of those you can't help but Love. =)
