    I love your idea. Right now I only have one queen size batting for my DJ quilt I am making. I love the post about the batting exploding in the car by auntpiggylpn. Too funny. I once bought some yarn and when you took the label off it grew and grew and grew. And when you worked on it, I swear the skein got bigger and bigger and it seemed like I would never use it up.

    My grandson took all my space bags when he moved off to college and has not returned them. I had gotten them for my daughter when she went to college 10 years ago and she sent them home promptly because she didn't have room to store them! LOL

    I use a space bag to store batting pieces in but, it sprung a leak and won't stay flat. I still use it for storage.

    A lot of you love the space bags, but what happens when you take the items out? Are they permentaly wrinkled? Will the dryer smooth out the wrinkles? I've never used them bc a friend said the things she put in them came out horridably wrinled.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I got a really cheap and easy way.I take a heavy garbage bag tighten it around the sucker part of my canister vac and suck all the air out and twist tie it.Sometimes you have to redo it but it is alot cheaper than space bags.
    As long as i am ventilated and vertical I will quilt

    I use them for my pillow forms and hadn't thought about batting! Love the description. MY DM today was talking about putting quilts in them just today and hoping for no "explosions" as she called them
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    That's the way I do it too. This is the best way to get all the dust out of sofa/chair cushions and throw pillows, stuffed animals, etc. Vacuum it flat and then let fluff back up.
    Got fabric?
