    I am working on a Garden Twist quilt. I want to use a batting that is a little thicker than the warm and natural. It says to do the top stitching in the ditches. But,, I don't think the warm and natural will be enough to give it any definition. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Beautiful, the prettiest one I have seen! I have no suggestions, I am sorry to be no help! Honestly...I think the definition is already there.

    Lovely quilt!

    A poly batting will give you definition because of it's poofy-ness!
    Though you may be surprised how much there'll be with W+N.

    I use an 80/20 blend. I think the "puffy" comes from less stitching, but not sure....

    Use two layers of Waarm & Naturaal. Doubble weight, and it's still your first choice.

    I would use 2 layers of batting or wool batting.

    you could use Hobbs 80/20. That's got a great poof.

    Go to user "Charisma" & see what she uses in her quilts. They have some poof to them & she really makes the quilting stand out.

    Gosh, that sure is pretty. Love your fabric choices.

    I like W & N so I have no advice for you.

    I would def go with Hobbs 80/20 because 2 layers of w & N would be way too hot.

    Check out poly/cotton blends, find one that can be quilted far enough apart to be able to SID like you want to :D:D:D

    Have you thought about Hobbs Wool batting??? I have always used Hobbs 80/20 Cotton batting. Back in the old days, there use to be a lot of bits of wood in W&N

    Wool batting really defines the quilting so it looks almost like trapunto.
