Default Pre-cut hexagon batting?

Is there a place that sells batting pre-cut for hexagons? Just wondered.

You mean batting cut into hexagon shapes? I've never seen any. What are you trying to do with it? You've got me quite curious.
I wonder if using a system like Accuquilt or Sizzix would work on batting....

well, I intended to be lazy. I was thinking of making some more hexagons, individually and then putting them together. I made a whole quilt that way. hex fabric and batting laid onto larger backing piece and the edges folded over and over again and stitched. easy t.v. room work. I guess when I'm ready, I will have to cut some batting up.

while i was making mine with florals and greens on the backs, a friend in England was making hers with black backs. Looked so much more pretty than mine so i will use black next time. and maybe larger hexagons too.

Your quilt is beautiful - love the colors and I am in love with hexagons!

What size are your hexagons?
