    What color batting!

    What color batting should I use with this color combo. Below is colors similar to what I have (too lazy to post pics) . Fabric is batik. Black seems too dark but ivory seems too light since you may see batting due to holes made in batik when quilting. I think gray would be good but can not seem to find it. Suggestion/thoughts

    I've only seen batting in white, off-white, and black. For your fabrics I wouldn't hesitate using the standard white or off-white. Holes in batiks will close up as soon as the quilt is washed, or sooner if you rub something across the hole. Pretty fabrics, I hope you post the quilt.

    Regular white or off white. Beautiful choice. What pattern are you using?

    I would use white or the traditional off white. I was talked into using black once, emphasis on once, because so much of my quilt was dark. The quilting was beautiful but I don't like the "feel" of the quilt. I would not use that product again, It is too "flimsy" and lacks body. Just my opinion.

    Off white batting would work fine. I use mostly batiks in my quilts. I have never had a problem with holes showing in my quilts. As others have said once it is wash it will be fine.

    I bought black batting to use in an Amish quilt that I never made. It's still in the wrapper!
    I wouldn't hesitate to use white or cream, as the others said.

    Actually I sent Hobbs an email suggesting they make a "gray" batting. Seems like it would work well with a lot of colors of tops. We will see their response!
