    Has anyone used Thermore batting? What did you use it for and how did you like it?

    I love it for my mini's. It is just the right weight and thickness for me. Cuts cleanly, stays together, I like it alot.

    I heard about it on this Board, and I'm grateful!

    I used it once for a class and love it. Very even, sews throught easily, and lays flat. A local shop owner told me she only uses it for clothing-where you don't want bulk. However I love it and will use it again.

    Thermore started out being used for coats/jackets.

    I have used it in clothing, baby quilts, summer bed quilts.
    It is wonderful to work with.

    I used it for a quilt for my Grandmother.

    I didn't want anything too heavy (and that's relative for 100 pound 90 year old) for her lap and on her legs.

    It's a big lap quilt - 72" square, but really weighs nothing, and she could easily fling it aside without effort.

    It was longarm quilted, and it came out lovely. Not as "solid' as, say, a quilt with Warm&Natural cotton batting, but still great for the summer.

    Works great for wall hangings, table runners and light weight quilts. Very easy to hand quilt.

    I am hand quilting my Dear Jane baby - Jane's Journey. I decided to use Thermore as it was supposed to be thin. Well, it is paper thin & I love quilting through it. I just got another Thermore that I am going to put in a log cabin that I will machine quilt. Wonder how it will do. I'll find out soon. I did find that it has a funny feeling - not quite sticky, but it goes away after some exposure to the air. It is really even across the surface & the thinnest I've ever found - been quilting since 1974.

    I've attached a pic of the basting of JJ. I don't know if you can tell just how thin it is, but that's the batting, not the backing hanging fron underneath the top.

    I've used it in two wall hangings, and they do hang really flat. The only issue that I have with it is that unless the batting is cut exactly the size of the backing or a little smaller, the excess batting clings to my machine bed and causes a little drag. Other than that, I think it is great for wall quilts.

    It is great for quilted jackets and anything you want to make that is low-loft. It is a poly, so wrinkles hang out of it well. Also great for table toppers and runners, as the thicker bats aren't good to put things like candles *ahem* on. Don't ask how I know....experience! LOL

    It also has a good 'drape' for wearable clothing.

    Hi, Cas! Do you suppose the drag is caused by that funny feel it has? I quilted on JJ for several months, so that weird feel is gone now. I just got another one, but I haven't taken it out of the bag yet as I'm not ready to work on it.

    Made the mistake of taking a batting (Fairfield Traditional) out to fluff & the furbaby with really long silky black fur (16 YO cat) decided it would make the bestest bed. There is so much shed hair on it, that I think I need to put it in the wash & take my chances on it coming out.

    I haven't used this before but it looks like it would be great to work with.
