    Batting Question---

    I received my JoAnns ad today in the mail, and they have 2 door busters for the next couple of weeks, one is a 20 yard roll of 60 inch Pellon siliconized polyester batting and they have a price of 29.99 regular 99.99, anyone ever use it? Your thoughts? The other is 25 yard roll of Pellon Natural cotton batting 90 inch wide for 99.99 regularly 274.99. Anyone use it? I have been using Warm and Natural for years. These look like a good deal, but I know sometimes good isn't always good.

    I saw these and was also wondering. I have never used Pellon brand. Looking forward to hearing from others.

    When it first came out a couple of years ago (?), Joann's had a special on the Pellon Cotton Queen size package so I bought it.

    I haven't noticed any difference in the quilt (as opposed to W&N), and it's been washed several times.
    Similar weight, feel, and thickness.

    (fyi - I prefer dense quilting so it's highly unlikely I'd ever have shifting or other issues)

    Interesting that you mention the door-buster because I walked by the roll of batting tonight and thought about getting it.
    I decided I had enough for a few quilts at home already.
    For $99 I might have to rethink that on Tuesday.

    I didn't see the rolls, but I bought several Pellon Nature's Touch 100% cotton battings at JoAnn's. The king size is 120x120 and at 50% off came to $23. One of the packages had been inadvertently cut open on the side so I was able to feel it. Yummmm!!! Plus it can be quilted 8 to 10" apart. Probably would not have purchased it except that I had recently read this review online:
    http://raevenfea.com/reviewing/pello...touch-batting/

    She mentions that she thought it was closer to 1/8" loft, but from what I could see and touch in the package, it really is closer to 1/4" loft. I also like Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon 100% cotton batting, and *that* batting is closer to 1/8".

    Sorry that was off-topic, but maybe someone else can benefit from the info.

    Regarding the Pellon roll you asked about, if it's Pellon #2107 or Pellon Natural One (they seem to be the same batting by different names), it gets pretty good reviews on eBay. If you Google the name you should find several sites with reviews. My impression is that it is similar to Warm and Natural. Be careful when comparing prices, as many of those online are 45"-wide rolls.

    Feel it before you buy it. I did use some Pellon I bought on a queen bed and it was wonderful and soft.

    I've used the Pellon Legacy cotton batting and it worked very well. Thanks for the heads up, got my flyer, but haven't looked at it yet!

    If anyone decides to buy the Pellon batting, there are dollars-off coupons on the inside front cover of the flyer which can be used on the purchase of sale items, so if you bought the 25-yard roll for $99.00 you could get another $15 off.

    When is the cotton batting on sale? Do you have to have a coupon for it?

    I've never used Pellon, but am glad to have read the reviews here. It will be good info to know next time I need to buy batting. Already stocked up last time JoAnns had a good sale. Plus, I need to build my cash stash back up after the trip to Houston last weekend for the quilt show.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    I think there was a thread on the Pellon cotton batting awhile ago. I was very unhappy with the queen sized cotton batting I used (decided to try because it was on sale). It left lint all over. Back to Warm and Natural or Hobbs 80/20 for me. I suggest trying it before investing in a 25 yard roll.

    I use the pellon (brand name) poly batting a lot. I'm chomping at the bit for that sale...Hoping for two or more rolls, will have hubby in tow. I use this for most of my quilts. I don't know about the cotton...I've not had good results with plain cotton batting...but do use the Warm n White, as it's needle punched, so very stable.

    If you read the fine print on the coupon---you can not use it for the daily deals Oh well such is life.

    Well with all that has been said I might just go get some---I know I will be getting a gift card this week for my anniversary---and this would be perfect way to spend it---by saving a bucket load of money on things. Thank you so much for the insight.

    I have not used Pellon batting and I would certainly hate to buy 20-25 yds. of it and then find out I didn't like it. I would be interested in comments from people who have used it.
