No poly here. I prefer cotton.

I like the puff of poly and use cotton only if it's something that I want to be flat. Too, poly washes and dries easily for quilts that are laundered more often.--my opinion anyhow.

another vote for poly batting, low loft poly has been my go-to for years, no issues with it.

I love the look of quilts with polyester batting. When I wash them they get nice and crinkly. I just wish I could find the thicker stuff I used to get when I made homemade comforters before I started making quilts.

Our quilt guild uses polyester batting for baby and children's quilts to be given through various organizations. They do look so pretty with the puffiness. For my personal quilting I prefer cotton or 80/20.

I do for wall hangings or small quilts that will be hung--poly doesn't show creases as much as cotton.

I read somewhere that using the poly batting is like using steel wool ...the fibres are abrasive and the quilts wear out quicker. I haven’t felt good about using it since reading this. Cost wise it sure is cheaper and I do like the look, fluffier, . Anyone else hear this ?
