    This is the disappearing 9 patch I am working on. Top is done, now time for the backing and quilting. I was really surprised at how fast it came together. Now I am off to Joann's for some batting. What do you all prefer, cotton or polyester batting? I have never used cotton batting before, but thinking I may get it for this one. What about bamboo, anyone ever used it?

    I know that's crossword puzzles but it really (really) reminds me of an eye exam :lol: especially with the letters and then the fuzzy smaller squares :roll:

    That is a really cool quilt,johnette. At first, I bought the cheap poly batting, but have since tried both bamboo and warm and natural cotton. I am not going back to poly again! Love the cotton and bamboo. either one is god. Enjoy! And get it when it is on sale!

    Janeen- it does remind one of the eye chart, doesn't it?
    Judee- I ended up with the poly batting again, can you believe neither Joann's or Wal-Mart had the cotton batting? Joann's had an 80/20, but I wasn't sure about it and I thought it was kind of expensive. Guess I'll have to watch for it to go on sale at Hancock's and make the 80 mile trip after it.

    Love the black & white!! Amazing how different all these disappearing 9 patches look with the different fabric.

    i've noticed that at my joann's the warm & natural battings are kept up near the home dec cutting table...don't know why, but the last few times I've needed batting, that's where they have them (and it's not because they were just cutting some!)

    Pretty!

    I prefer warm & natural batting and it's much easier for me to work with.

    Love it!! I can't wait to finish mine!! As for batting, I've used it all. It depends on the project as to which I like best. How is that for non-committed!! LOL!

    Very nice, I too think it could look kinda like an eye chart :lol: My preference on batting is the Warm & Natural all cotton batting. The bamboo batting looks pretty nice, but it's more expensive isn't it?
