Default Thermore Ultra Thin Batting - anyone used this?

Went to JoAnn's after work tonight to stock up on some flannel for a rag quilt. Saw this and it was 50% off (all packaged batting was) decided to get some. Seems very thin but since I am going through the power surges lately decided to try it on a quilt i want to finish (this one is for me - very first top I made - still haven't got it finished yet -lol ) anyone use this - pros/cons? By the way it is made by Hobbs so I figured it would be good just not sure if it will be good for a quilt!

I've used it twice and I liked it. It's easy to quilt on, probably because it is thin, but it fluffs up when it's put in the dryer.

I used it in a t shirt quilt. I think it would be great on a dsm...I didn't love it on my longarm because the thinness made it difficult to get the correct tension.

Thermore is widely used in the quilted clothing venue. In Texas where Hobbs is made we usually thought of Thermore less for quilts and more for quilted clothing, wall hangings, accessories and so forth.

that is the recommended batting for quilted jackets, purses, other clothing items- it adds just the right amount of body to a garment without adding alot of weight- if you like it you can use it for what ever you want- but follow the quilting distance recommendations - it needs to be quilted fairly dense

I use this batting for baby quilts. They are not so bulky this way.

I have a quilt on my bed right now with Thermore batting. It's perfect for a summer quilt. Keep in mind it comes out very flat and doesn't show fancy quilting well. It quilts easily by hand or machine.
