Batting Basics and Pricing


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.
