    PS-- How much do you guys typically spend on a baby quilt's batting?

    I usually buy the largest bag of batting that my budget will allow at that particular moment...sometimes it's the crib size and sometimes it's the king size that will do several projects from one bag of batting.

    Adorable! I love it! The simple pattern really shows off that great tea-themed fabric!

    For batting, I would just got to Hancock's or JoAnn and see if you can get some batting by the yard. You should be able to get out for around $5.

    That is pretty much what I do to. I also try and catch it when someone like Jo-Ann's or Hancocks have it on sale like 40% off.

    Thank you everyone!!

    I found baby quilt batting on onlinefabricstore.net for $3.75 each when I ordered a certain amount...I ended up with 8 because I've been making quilt tops like there's no tomorrow! I was just hoping it was a good price :)

    I'm with them. 40 and 50 off is really helpful. I get the king size and cut it for four quilts I love the quilt.

    Love the quilt -- I buy batting yardage on sale (as much as I can afford and have room for) so I have it for the lean times.

    Yes, that is a good price although you don't say what kind it is--cotton, poly, or a blend. Even cheaper than buying a king and cutting to size for several batts but I've always bought the largest I could and just used it until its used up and that is usually cheaper than buying baby batts individually. Now that I have a LA, I buy the roll.

    Love the tea fabric, especially in my previous life I catered teas a lot.
