The “Inside” Scoop: Batting Basics
Batting and Backing needs to be a minimum of 8″ wider and 8″ longer than your top. If, for example, your top is 50 x 50, you need batting and backing that is 58 x 58. The extra allows us to have the needed room to attach your quilt to the frame, and you get all the extra back. My preferred batting is Hobb’s Heirloom 80/20 cotton/poly blend batting. You can supply the batting for your top or get it from me at a reasonable charge.
🌟 Please Note: if you do send me batting, there are certain batting types I can not accept as they will not work well on a longarm frame, this includes any poor quality batting, batting with holes, tears or strains, or some old quilts that are in poor quality 🌟
Batting can be purchased on the online check-out form — this is the preferred/recommended method as it ensures that I both have enough batting and that it is of the correct quality.
