Buy your batting by the inch reducing the amount of remnants you have at the end of your project. This batting is 96" wide and will be cut to the number of inches you need.
Wool batting is necessary for quilts that my be folded for periods of time. The wool batting will release the creasing making your quilt hang perfectly.
Tuscany Wool batting is made with the very best super wash wool, which eliminates most or all of the shrinkage. It is then carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding. Tuscany wool batting provides superb insulation and the fiber breathes allowing excess heat to dispense away from the body. It can be quilted up to 4" apart and is washable. We recommend washing in tepid water by hand and laying out flat to dry. It hand quilts like a dream, and is wonderful for machine quilters as well.
Your batting should be 8" longer and wider than your quilt top if being quilted on a longarm. If your are quilting it on a domestic sewing machine you can get away with 4-6 inches more than your quilt top. Measure all 4 sides of the top, then use the average of each of the two lengths and two widths. For example is your top measures down each side 64.5 and 63.5, then you would use 64". If the top and bottom measure 71.5 and 72.5, then you would use 72", resulting in a quilt top measuring 64x72. If the largest side is less than 96" then you will not need to piece the batting so you can just purchase the length of the shortest side. For example, if the quilt top measures 64x72, you would add the 8" to 64 and purchase 72" of batting. The piece you would receive would be 96X72. You would then cut the 96" side down to 80" (72+8).
I also offer long arm quilting services. I use a Gammill Statler long arm, which is the best long arm quilter made. For an edge to edge pattern the cost is $.02 per square inch. For the example above, on a quilt top that is 64x72 (4602 square inches) the quilting would cost $92.16. This does not include the batting or backing. I also do custom quilting which typically d have any borders, blocks or sections in a different quilt pattern. Let me know if you have any questions about longarm quilting services.
