I had posted a picture a while back, but I'm not sure if it still shows up since the website migration. So I'll post it again...my apologies for the redundancy!

Oh, and I spray baste the two bats together. Also, I don't use two bats for every quilt, and if I am only using one, I use cotton/poly 80/20

Most of my quilts are wall quilts and I have been experimenting with double layering and wool. I think the small quilts (under 30" x 30" or so) do well enough with just one layer of wool. I never heard that about the direction of the wool and stretching. I did not like cotton and wool. I did it on one of my larger quilts and I almost couldn't get it quilted. It didn't behave well in the quilting process and it was heavy. I did finish it finally, but decided not to try that again. After talking with several people, I tried one layer of the thinnest polyester I could find and one layer of wool. That was wonderful. It was light enough to handle, it behaved during quilting, and it hangs straight and flat. I used it on my quilt that just won a ribbon in MQX.

I quilt on my domestic machine. Perhaps those who use cotton and wool quilt on a longarm or have found a different cotton batting. Anyway, I like poly and wool.

Beautiful Connie!

I'd say the wool batt is perfect for this quilt.

Barb :D

Would it matter if the wool was stretchy? Seems once it is quilted into the quilt it most likely isn't going anywhere because the cotton isn't stretchy.

I've not had a problem with wool stretching....I think the modern ones are well made and have a good scrim.
