How far apart should your quilting be---I have forgotten!!!
In fact i don't think I was ever told if there is a rule for this.

What is required depends on the type of batting.

It's warm and natural type batting,shoudl it be 4 inches or 6 inches??

Look at the quilting requirements, it should be on the batting's package :wink:

Their web site says up to 10", but personally I would not go any farther than 5 or 6".

battings vary greatly from needing to be quilted every 2" up to every 10-12" so it depends on the batting first off, if you want to do some real heavy quilting use the 2" stuff; if your batting says it can be quilted up to 10" apart that pretty much gives you lots of 'play-room' you can decide what you want to do and decide on proportion to get it balanced around the quilt without worrying too much about not getting it enough (unless you just outlined 12" blocks..) so start with your batting requirements then choose a design you like that fits in that requirement.
