Default Favorite batting?

I like a nice cotton batting. What is your favorite brand? Do you buy it online and if so, from where?

I really like warm and natural.....and warm and white.....I buy queen size packages from either Joann or Hobby Lobby...especially when they have free shipping......My friends buy a whole roll with coupon but I don't have space for it....and since I only make lap size quilts for charity....works for me

Hobbs 80/20 fusible is ,y favourite for machine quilting. For hand quilting I like Mountain mist pre packaged stuff from Walmart.

Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 or Quilter's Dream Request weight. I call Warm and Natural, warm and naturally stiff as a board. LOL I think the scrim makes it really stiff if you quilt it closer than the 10 inches apart it says is the max.

For cotton, I use Warm and White or Warm and Natural, and I haven't had any problems with stiffness. I really can't tell that there's a scrim in there. I recently tried Soft and Bright, a poly batt by the same company, and I really liked the quilting definition, as well as the soft feeling of the batting. Some of the cheaper poly batts feel "yucky" to me.
