    Have you used Pellon 100% cotton batting?

    Tuesday Morning has a bolt for $90. It has a scrim, shrinkage 2-3%, quilting distance up to 10 inches apart. I'm thinking of going back later today to pick up a bolt but wanted some input from all of you.

    I bought a piece to try at Joanns but gave the sandwiched top to my sister to finish. Sounds like a good deal. How big is the bolt? I usually use warm and white and thought it had a similar feel.

    I have used it in 2 baby quilts and it worked fine. I would buy it again.

    It's 90" x 25 yds. I went ahead and bought it. I also thought it felt similar to Warm & Natural.

    I bought it a while back I just started using it. It quilted great, it seems comparable to warm and natural which is the only other batting I've ever used

    I have bought one and used it. It does shrink more than the warm and white batting. But after the quilt is washed, it is a lot more cuddley than the warm and white. I had purchased a roll from Joanns last year after Thanksgiving. Mary

    My quilting group used this for our strip quilts. The only thing that I've found is you have to be careful when ironing because the scrim will melt from the heat. I thought it was maybe a tiny bit thinner. I would definitely use it again. Performs as well as W&N.

    Scrim is a very thin layer of poly. Even if the label says 100% cotton unless it states no scrim, it's on the batting. The scrim is what causes batting to burn in the microwave when making tater bags and bowl holders. I hope the Tuesday Morning store here has some bolts of it.
    Got fabric?
