    Warm and Plush batting

    I was wondering if anyone has used Warm & Plush batting. If you have, did you like it?

    While I've not used it, it sounds wonderful. Like you, I'm eager to hear from others!

    This is extremely difficult to locate. I was told by a customer rep that it has been shipped to Joann's warehouses but no one knows when they will put it into their stores.

    Batt-Mart has it - I emailed them and got this response last week regarding queen size batt:

    At this time we do not offer individual batts. We sell by the case, here is a link to that item: http://www.batt-mart.com/site/490194...C-WP-2665-CASE

    They don't sell it by the yard yet - apparently it's a very new product. The case has 4 queen sized batts.

    This site says it is available at fabric.com. But no where does it say how thick it is. I hope someone who has tried this batting responds, as I am very interested. I use Warm and Natural because you can quilt 10 inches apart, and this says 6 inches apart. Most of the time that would work for me.

    Hello everyone! If you'd like a free sample of Warm & Plush please e-mail me your shipping addresss: [email protected]
    Warm & Plush has 50% more cotton than Warm & Natural and is considered a high loft batting weighing 6 oz per sq yd. I just measured the batting and it is the same thickness at 1/8 of an inch thick. It is dense and plush! I will post pictures of the batting next to a ruler soon

    I received my sample and have to say-this batting is SUPER soft. I've got it in a quilt sandwich, ready to start being quilted tonight. But first impression is WOW.

    I was delighted to receive a generous sample of the Warm & Plush from Abby at W&N, especially as I am in Canada. I love the feel of it. Just now UPS delivered a box with 2 Queen size Warm & Plush battings from Fabric.com. They were on sale last week and shipping to Canada was only $3.95 and only took two days! The Fabricland (chain store) here had a couple in stock and the price tag is $99.98 (plus 13% tax).

    I just finished machine quilting a bed quilt using warm & plush (purchased on amazon.com). It is SO thick and fairly heavy as well.
    I'm not sure if it is a factor of the size of the batting, but it was the most difficult project I've done so far in 10+ years of quilting and over a year of frame/machine quilting. I had far more thread breakage and skipped stitches than ever before in a quilt. I normally use warm & natural and don't have those problems generally.
    As challenging as it was, the quilt is for my daughter's and as it is flannel on top & bottom with the extra thick batting - she is LOVING her new snuggly quilt.
    Hoping to try the warm & plush on a smaller baby quilt and see if the problems persist.
