So, does W&N usually give that crinkly/used look after washings??
What batting do you use in wallhangings?
Thank you for your ideas. I am truly stumped as to what to put in wallhangings so they will hang nicely and have some good body/substance/weight to them.

    I think any batting will "crinkle" if it's washed. But you probably won't be washing a wall hanging much anyway. One solution would be to heavily quilt the wall hanging so that it didn't crinkle as much.

    I've made a lot of wall hangings and have never washed any of them. If you feel they need attention you could hang them outside to air or use a vacuum to go over them lightly.

    why not try Soft and Bright by Warm Co. It is the polyester version and I don't get the crinkles.

    I teach FMQ and I like Quilters Dream Batting. they have all different kinds, but I think their poly/cotton 80/20 would be great. it should not shrink or crinkle. that way you get the feel of cotton and sews like cotton, but is lighter and shouldn't shrink more then 10% if any. if you are using a walking foot, make sure to quilt top to bottom then turn quilt and go bottom to top and repeat till finished. if u FMQ try to use the same format to prevent quilt top and bottom from shifting. if it shifts one way, when you turn it, it will shift back. hope this helps.
