Batting

Loving Stitches carries an inventory of Hobbs batting to meet your needs.  You may select from several types of polyester, cotton/polyester, 100% cotton, or wool.  If you decide to provide your own batting it must be a minimum of 4" longer and 4" wider than your quilt top.  Most brands of batting are acceptable, however, some batting brands may be rejected due to shredding or stretching tendencies.

Polydown is a low loft polyester which has a siliconized surface to prevent bearding.  It is available in white or black.

Thermore is a very thin and light weight polyester with an excellent drape and is often used for clothing, shower curtains, and tablecloths.


80/20 is a blend of 80% cotton and 20% polyester which is available in natural or black.  This batting will shrink to give an antique appearance when washed.


100% cotton batting is available in natural or bleached.  This batting will shrink to give an antique appearance when washed.


Wool is an excellent insulator and naturally breathes.  The Hobbs brand may be washed or dry cleaned.  Due to possible bearding, it is not recommended to be used with black or dark fabrics.
