    I use Warm and Natural.
    It lays nice before and after washing and sews nicely

    Warn and Natural. It's easy to use and I can buy it by the roll, delivered to my door, and I like the old fashioned look it gives as it shrinks a little when washed.

    Oh yes, cannot forget having it delivered lol

    BTW....Joanns has it on sale, but if you use the 40% off online right now, with shipping, the price is $207 and some change for the 90 x 40 roll.
    I just orded one. Really didn't want to pay that price because I have gotten it for less, but I'm down to about 4 yds left on my roll and I don't want to run completely out.

    I like warm and natural. I have used polyester but it just doesn't lay right when project is done.

    I JUST ordered a roll...and it was even less with their online coupon for 50% off the sale price. Get it while it's hot! :)

    I like the Warm & Natural for hand quilting but also use Hobbs 80/20 which is 80% cotton and 20% polyester. It has a little higher loft, not as flat as W & N.

    I like Hobbs Heirloom or Quilter's Dream the best. W&N is too stiff if it's quilted very close.

    I use the QD poly for quilts that I want to have a more modern look after they're washed since it doesn't shrink.

    The Hobbs has just the tiniest bit of loft to it and gives your quilting some nice definition. If I want a flatter look I use the QD cotton.

    I hand quilt and just discovered Hobbs Tuscany 100% cotton. It comes in silk, wool and polyester too.
