Sorry, I did not re-read before posting. It should have read " do not like to be w/o my w/n. Be without my warm and natural.

This is the flyer that comes in the mail too. I am in Michigan, and wonder if different states might have different items on sale!!!

I believe the $19.99 are on pre-packaged batts. The 60% off is on any cut of fabric. The Joann's I have been to considers W/N a cut of fabric. I buy the whole bolt at that price. I'm in Michigan too.

Gladyou mentioned that it is good for hand quilting. I just took a beginners hand quilting class and the instructor suggested Warm and Blend which is 50-50 cotton & poly. But I can't find it any place. I use Warm and Natural in my machine quilted quilts and love it. If any one knows where I can order the Warm and Blend, please let me know.

I like how easy it is to sandwich & the warmth but it doesn't drape well, because it seems a little stiff. I hand quilted the first quilt I made with it & really did my hands in. Had to take a long break to let the tendonitis subside. If I use it again I will machine quilt it or tie it. I think it would be good for wall hangings.

W & N (by the yard) has been on sale for 50% off for the last two weeks. Yesterday I saw it was still on sale. I don't know if it continues this week; if it does, here is a 25% off total purchase coupon

I prefer W & N and since my quilts are 100% cotton they shrink together nicely. BUT I have been making many charity quilts the last couple of years and the budget simply won't stretch to the cost of W & N even tho I prefer it and think it is much kinder to my machines than polyester. It also contains scrim which I also prefer my batting to have.

I've used W&N in many quilts, it's my fav batting next to ther Quilters Dream cottons ... I've never preshrunk it either, it doesn't need it. I want that vintage look when it's washed !! It machine quilts beautifully, and I rarely handquilt anything now except a small project. If you want a softer drape, I'd go with Q Dream or Hobb's -

I haven't used a Mountain Mist batting in years, but I def would NOT mix any polyester batt with a cotton one. They react totally differently when washed ...

Well, that explains it. Checked my flyer, NO page #15 .... I'm guessing that page backed the coupons and I didn't bother to check it before I clipped them .... my bad!!! lol

Thanks for the info

I love the Warm products. There is a factory near me and the company is incredibly supportive of guilds and quilt groups in this area. They are very highly regarded here.
