  1. Thanks so much for your support! Hobbs batting is the best!!

  2. Janet Meeks says:

    I have never used Hobbs batting, but have heard good things. I’d like to give it a whirl!

  3. Janet Meeks says:

    I have used precuts to make whole projects, and I have used them in connection with complimentary yardage. I must also admit, I’ve used them as pretty decor in my sewing room–who doesn’t love the look of a jelly roll?

  4. Janet T says:

    I like using fat quarters, as I can get more cuts from FQ’s than other precuts. I do a lot of hand applique, so I can cut a few shapes I want from a FQ and still have enough for piecing fabric.

  5. Janet T says:

    I usually use 80/20 Hobbs from the box stores, but they and the LQS in my area don’t carry the cotton/wool. I would like to try that, but I want to touch and feel first, so I will have to wait for the next quilt show and hope they have it.

  6. Margaret Morton says:

    My favorite is 80/20’whch I buy online in appropriate size as needed.

  7. Margaret Morton says:

    Pre cuts…I lik to use charm packs to make bags.

  8. I love Hobbs 80/20. I usually buy it packaged at Hobby Lobby. I like how warm the quilts are but have a bit of loft when quilted

  9. I live using fat quarter precuts and I like to make improv Quilts!

  10. carol alperin says:

    I love 80/20 and buy mine by the package whenever I can find king size available.

  11. carol alperin says:

    I use 2.5 in strips for many of my quilts, especially love making triangles from joined strips.

  12. Nancy N says:

    I use a lot of your Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 white, and usually purchase it by the roll from a LQS. Love to use your Tuscany wool, and get it by the package for specific projects.

  13. Nancy N says:

    I like to use pre-cuts in quilts where I want the fabrics to be well coordinated. Lately I have been using 10″ squares, cutting them to work in patchwork blocks.

  14. Nancy Lewis says:

    I use pre cuts in making quilts. I have used them for table runners and totes, also.

  15. Nancy Lewis says:

    I use Hobbs 80/20 bleached for all my projects. I buy it online .

  16. Claudia says:

    I buy my Hobbs batting in precut packages from my local shop. I would love to use the wool batting in ever quilt I make, but am worried about washing it in the machine, so save it forthe quilts I keep for myself. The only other type of goons I have used is the 80/20 and that is quite nice as well.

  17. Rachel Smith says:

    I love the Heirloom 80/20 fusible batting! It makes quilt basting so easy to do. I learned about it from Angela Walters’ videos. I prefer to buy online, usually from Amazon or a quilt shop with a web store. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  18. Rachel Smith says:

    I haven’t done a lot with pre-cuts yet (other than fat quarters, which I use for everything), but I’m excited to try a stack of layer cakes that I bought. I have used charm cuts for paper piecing projects because it’s quick and easy.

  19. Linda says:

    Always use Hobbs Battings for my Baby Charity Quilts>which are my quilting passion right now! Usually purchase from Connecting Threads. Thank You for a neat giveaway!

  20. Kathy E. says:

    I have used several different Hobbs batting items, but my favorite is the Tuscany Cotton Wool Blend. Living in Iowa, the winters are very cold and I love that this batting in a quilt keeps us very warm! It’s also great to machine quilt with and allows a bit of shrinkage when washed for the squishy/lovely quilted look! I usually buy it online at Amazon.

  21. Linda says:

    Used pre-cuts in many ways! A Favorite is the Charm Pack for making fast HST’s with precision.Using Layer Cakes for larger HST cuts! Love Christa’s Book+ideas! Thanks again for sharing!

  22. Kathy E. says:

    Precuts are my favorite way of collecting favorite fabrics! I don’t have to buy a whole yard and I can afford to get the collection, if I wish, with all the coordinating fabrics. I find it very easy to cut up fat quarters into the size blocks I need as I follow a pattern, or design my own improv blocks. Any scraps leftover are used to make patchwork baby bibs and handmade cards!

  23. Laura Manning says:

    My favorite batting is Hobbs 80/20. I love it’s drapeability and ease of use. I buy in large pieces (5 yards or so). Would buy a bolt if I had space. Thanks for your generosity.

  24. Laura Manning says:

    I mostly buy fat quarters because of their size and ease of use. Sometimes I will use a whole “set” for a quilt, but often I pick and choose the FQ’s from various sets for a quilt.

  25. Rina Mason says:

    My favorite is Tuscany 80/20 cotton and wool is my favorite and I usually buy it from a big box store or online.

  26. Lucy Blum says:

    I love cotton. I buy from big box stores or local quilt shop. Bought once online when it was on sale at one of my favorite fabric sites.

  27. Ali says:

    I like 80/20 best – I buy it from big box stores (especially with coupons) – my long armer buys it by the roll!
    I like fat quarters best for projects!!!

  28. Rina Mason says:

    I use precuts in a lot of my quilting. Nothing is faster than cutting out the time it takes to cut the same size piece of fabric over and over. They are also so easy to use in so many different designs.

  29. Donna says:

    I like Heirloom 80/20, it is so easy to use. The finished quilt isn’t to heavy or bulky. I buy at my local quilt shop.
    Thank you for giveaway.

  30. Donna says:

    Jelly roll precuts sure speed up my quilt making. I love precuts because the fabrics all coordinate and there is no more problems trying to match fabric colors.

  31. Vicki S says:

    I typically buy 80/20 bleached batting wherever I find it locally. It’s affordable and the perfect loft.

  32. Angela Morrison says:

    My preferred place to buy batting is a big box store and have it shipped to me. Those bolt boxes are huge! 🙂

  33. Susan says:

    Haven’t tried Hobbs batting yet, need to give it a try!

  34. Chris K. says:

    I’m not sure I have a favorite Hobbs batting yet. I suspect it might be wool, but I haven’t made anything worthy of it yet. I have some 80/20 and some fusible 80/20 I’m using soon. I bought it online at Connecting Threads. We don’t have a Joann’s nearby or I would probably buy it there.

  35. Chris K. says:

    I seem to always cut precuts into smaller pieces, even if they’re charm squares.

  36. Barbara Black says:

    Tuscany Wool is luscious. Easy to stitch, so comfortable to sleep under. I usually buy it at the vendor booth at big quilt shows.

  37. Sandy Allen says:

    I’ve never used Hobbs batting, so I can’t tell you which is my favorite. I do love to use a blend of cotton and polyester for my quilts, though. I find it holds up better than all cotton and is easy to work with than all polyester.

    • Sandy,

      Well, if you love using cotton and poly blends, then you’re sure to love our well-known Heirloom 80/20, which is 80% cotton and 20% polyester.

      It’s our most well-known and loved product and it comes in natural, bleached, black and fusible!

      Good luck on winning,

  38. Joanne P. says:

    I like the 80/20 cotton poly., and cotton. Purchased some from American Quilters Society.

  39. Kathryn Poche says:

    I love Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend. The loft and weight is perfect and I love how it is machine quilted with the longarm.

  40. Vanessa Stewart says:

    I like the Heirloom Premium. I use it for machine quilting, it is easy to work with and I like how it quilts. I usually buy it prepackaged at a local fabric/quilt store and on sale.

  41. Tamara says:

    I don’t know if I’ve used Hobbs batting. I’m a new quilter but I’ve only bought yardage off the bolt — not sure of the brand. So far, I’ve used cotton/wool blends (I think they call it 80/20?).

  42. Tamara says:

    My go-to choice of pre-cut is the fat quarter. Big enough to make so many things! However, I have a quilt project in mind and I’ll need lots of colours in small squares so maybe a mini charm pack???

  43. Christi says:

    My longarm quilter prefers Hobbs. She uses wool followed by cotton in quilts that I will hang. For bed quilts I really like Bamboo or cotton.

  44. Christi says:

    My favorite precut is a jelly roll but honestly I buy them all. I love precuts.

  45. Ann O. says:

    I’m a new quilter and my experience with batting is very limited. I haven’t tried Hobbs batting yet, but after looking at all you have to offer, I’m looking forward to trying it! I will check at my LQS first to see if they carry it before trying other sources.

  46. Ann O. says:

    I’ve been on a coaster-making kick lately, and 5″ charm squares have been perfect for them. They are also really nice for smaller quilts and table runners.

  47. Liza Alton says:

    I don’t think I have ever used Hobbs batting, but I would like to try it sometime. I usually use a cotton poly blend of 80 cotton and 20 poly because I like the way it feels and I like the shrink that happens when the quilt is washed and dried.

  48. Diane says:

    I’m not very good at putting different fabrics together so I tend to buy fat quarter bundles or kits so I know everything will go together well. I’m loving the quilts made by the blog hoppers and would love a copy of Christa’s book!

  49. Diane says:

    I just purchased two types of Hobbs batting last week – one wool and the other 80/20 and can’t wait to try it out. I bought it online and it is supposed to be delivered tomorrow.

  50. Laura Piland says:

    I haven’t used Hobbs before, but I have started to love cotton and cotton/poly batts. I’d love to try Hobbs! I prefer buying online or at my local quilt shop.

  51. Paula says:

    We buy the Heirloom 80/20 black for many quilts. It’s great for my husband’s black and other dark quilts and I use it for bright children’s quilts. Thanks for the great give-a-way.

  52. Paula says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win twice on one blog. I love to use precuts for baby quilts and for quick comfort quilts when I hear about a friend in need. I have so many different precuts on hand that I often find just what I need to fit the personality of a friend going through a trying time.

  53. Julie says:

    My favorite batting that I have used is Heirloom 80/20. It just gets softer and softer, making it great for new baby quilts.But I am really interested in your Tuscany wool and wool blend. I usually purchase at a big box craft and fabric store.

  54. Julie says:

    I love to buy precuts in order to have all the prints in a collection. Fat quarters are my favorite followed closely by layer cakes. These give me plenty to work with as I love to make very scrappy quilts. I can get the most variety this way. Thanks for the opportunity to win Christa’s book. I want to make every quilt!

  55. June says:

    Im just getting started with actually sandwiching my quilts. The folks around me always use cotton so that is what i got, but id like to try wool like Christa has said she likes! Thanks for the chance.

    • June says:

      Here is my third entry. (Although i forgot to tell I got my batting mainly in packages from LQS in second entry so I will add that here.)

      On precuts – i like to get fat quarters for variety – but having jelly rolls and charm packs makes the projects go so much quicker – really a great way to go! I want to try precut hexies too. Chrusta’s ideas are akways so nice. Looking forward to her new book.

      Thanks for chance!

  56. Pat T. says:

    I have loved using Hobbs 100% cotton Heirloom and Tuscany batting in my quilts!
    Hobbs has been *consistently* soft, high quality batting, and a pleasure to use!
    I recently bought Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80% cotton/20% poly, for a little more loft in a baby quilt… Looking forward to using that!
    Next I want to try Hobbs Tuscany Cotton/Wool, followed by Hobbs Heirloom & Tuscany Wool! (for even greater loft with lighter weight with more warmth!) I get my beautiful Hobbs battings at my local quilt shops!

  57. Pat T. says:

    I love collecting and using precut fabrics! It is SO nice to have ALL of the fabrics in a particular line that I like!… And, having the fabrics already cut saves SO much time in preparations… So convenient!… I can get sewing that much faster!
    Pat T.

  58. Linda Burton says:

    I have always used hobbs batting for my quilts, my favourite is 80/20 as it drapes so nicely

  59. Linda Burton says:

    I havnt used precuts I usually cut my own and make up my own designs

  60. I have a roll of Hobbs batting in my sewing closet right now. I love it. I love the wool-so cozy without being hot, to sleep under.

  61. Diane Paul says:

    I like the 80/20 batting. I usually buy it from connecting threads when they have a sale

  62. Diane Paul says:

    I use precuts to enlarge my stash. I make a lot of scrap quilts and these work perfectly. Half square triangles are my favorite piecing technique to use since they are so versitile

  63. Lee says:

    I use Hobbs 80/20, and buy the king size. Then cut it into wall-hanging sizes. Been my favorite for a lot of years. I ususlly buy it at Connecting Threads when they have sales.

  64. Michele T says:

    I’ve heard so many good things about Hobbs batting but have not tried it myself! I prefer an all natural batting in cotton and I’d love to try the 100% washable wool Hobbs batting.

    • Michele,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

      We make several battings composed of 100% cotton, two in our Heirloom line and two in our Tuscany line – one in each line is natural and the other in each line is bleached.

      We also make Heirloom Natural w/scrim, which has a stabilizing layer needle-punched into it, providing additional stability and the ability to stitch up to 10″ apart!

      And finally, we also offer Tuscany Cotton Wool which is 80% cotton and 20% wool. It’s a deliciously soft batting!

      We’d love to hear what you think of our wool batting, available in both the Heirloom and Tuscany lines – perhaps you’ll win some?!

      Good luck on winning,

  65. Lucy Blum says:

    I use layer cakes for quick quilts when I need a handmade gift for friends and family! Just a few cuts and I’m ready to sew!

  66. Delaine says:

    I have never used Hobbs batting, but it must be a good products because most of the blog writers that I follow mention using it. Would love to try some! Thanks!

  67. Diane Beavers says:

    Read via Christa about Hobbs Wool batting, so that is the one I’d love to try for the softness. I’ve not tried any of your products yet. Thank you!

  68. Diane Beavers says:

    I use Fat Quarters mostly as far as precuts go. FQ’s are versatile and I use these firts for bigger quilted items like quilts, runners and my scraps from these precuts become coordinating pillows or small totes/bags.

  69. I use precuts for a quick fix – to get a quick and fun quilt done. Sometimes its because I need one to give away, other times its just for the satisfaction of completing a task. I have used the 80-20 Hobbs and really liked the feel of it.

  70. Theresa Powers says:

    I have bought Hobbs package batting from my local quilt shop to try my hand at hand quilting.

  71. Theresa Powers says:

    Regarding using precursor, I have only used once for a specific pattern for a class. Doesn’t mean I don’t have some in my stash though to use for a later date!

  72. Theresa Powers says:

    Regarding using pre-cuts, I have only used once for a specific pattern for a class. Doesn’t mean I don’t have some in my stash though to use for a later date!

  73. bonnie says:

    I use my jelly rolls, charm packs, and fat quarter bundles in the quilts I am currently making for the nursing staff at my husbands dialysis center… and for the patients for Christmas this year. Other times they are used in my charity quilts for nursing homes and others

  74. Sandy says:

    Howdy! I buy my favorite batt, Hobbs Heirloom, on the roll from BattMart. Delivered to my front door, this lovely treasure keeps my handquilting rolling right along. Quality batting assures a dependable, durable quilt. “Hobbs – it’s from Texas, you know.”

  75. Sandy says:

    Pre-cuts – convenient, inspiring, fun. Great when I want to add variety with coordinating fabrics without investing in yardage. Especially useful for charms quilts, traditional or modern.

  76. Frances Ensing says:

    I love Hobbs fusible 80/20. It eliminates the worry about how to baste as the fusible is in the batting,just heat set. Recommend it to all my friends. I usually purchase through Connecting Threads.

  77. Ann says:

    I have never used Hobbs. I have been quilting for about a year and look forward to trying all kinds!

  78. Ann says:

    I have used pre cuts a lot and have enjoyed doing HST and jelly roll race quilts. I just finished a disappearing 9 patch with pre cuts that was quick and easy! I have subscribed so I get future updates from you, thank you!!

  79. Cathy L Wilson says:

    I have a bolt of your 80/20 batting and I love it! I’ve been using it for the last two years and I still have a lot left. I just bought two packages of the wool batting to use in a quilt I’m making for my bed. Can’t wait to finish the Top so I can try the wool!

  80. Lisa Marie says:

    I like the 80/20 batting best. I have bought many queen size packages of it, usually at a local Michael’s store.

  81. Wendy Oyler says:

    I always use Hobbs, packaged , my favorite is fusible 80/20, I also like the wool and crib sized for smaller pieces, usually buy it on Lin when on sale with free shipping

  82. Lisa Marie says:

    I use pre-cuts in various ways. A charm pack is great to make a quick table runner. I sometimes combine a layer cake with fabrics from my stash to make a lap quilt. And I often use leftover bits from various pre-cuts in scrap quilts.

  83. Wendy Oyler says:

    I my favorite it Hobbs Fusable, then wool and cribsize for small pieces. I buy online when on sale and free shipping

  84. Wendy Oyler says:

    I love using precuts, I tend to use many of them (charms) table runners. Layer cakes I use for larger quilt blocks, also use 2.5 strip for everything

  85. Mom C says:

    I love the wool batting and use it for special quilts but I generally buy the natural cotton. It feeds well on my longarm and is love to run my hands over the batting. Thanks.

  86. Mom C says:

    I’m enjoying the blog hop and appreciate all the different takes on Crista’s quilts. I mix all sizes of fabric. Depending on the pattern I have FQs, layer cakes, jelly rolls, and yardage, all of which I use. I like the scrappy look and having an entire collection that I know goes together sometimes makes it almost too easy to make a quilt. They are so handy. Thanks.

  87. Linda Webster says:

    My favourite is Hobbs Heirloom Premium batting.

  88. Linda Webster says:

    My favourite precuts are jelly rolls. I love using them to make lap quilts.

  89. Laura says:

    I have not used Hobbs batting but am working on a quilt that I want to use wool batting, so I have been doing my research. Thanks to Christa’s recommendation, decision made, Hobbs it will be.

  90. Laura says:

    When I need a quilt made quickly, I reach for precuts. I have my tried and true patterns, but love the quilts in “Piece and Quilt with Precuts.”

  91. Fireside Quilter says:

    I usually buy my batting on an as needed basis unless it’s on sale! I also like 100% natural cotton batting and would love to try Hobbs batting!! Thanks for the chance!!!

    • Fireside Quilter,

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      Please see the list of available cotton battings in my reply to Michele above – any of these could be fun to try.

      Good luck on winning some!

  92. Debbie L says:

    I haven’t used Hobbs batting yet, but I’d love to! I typically shop for batting at our local quilting store first. If I don’t find what I’m looking for I head online!

  93. I like Hobbs 80/20 because it doesn’t shrink as much, especially for more modern quilts. For more traditional I like the 100% cotton. I’ve never tried the washable wool but think it would be lovely on traditional quilts.

  94. I used the heirloom 80/20 for the first time in my latest finish. I LOVE it so much! I have to use up the stock of cotton I have then I’m wanting to switch. Good stuff!

  95. Nancy McC says:

    I like the feel of the Hobb’s 80/20 when quilting and after washing the quilt. It is easy to handle and sews wonderfully when I am free-motion quilting. I use a low loft most of the time. Pre-cuts are a fun and fast way to put together lap and baby size quilts in a short amount of time. Great for gift giving.

  96. edel duffy says:

    I live in Ireland and have tried the cotton batting, bought from craftsby on line. it was beautiful to work with. I’m learning to do my own quilting from several on line classes from both Christinas and Missouri quilt company. ive my family queing up for quilts so would love to win. thanks for all the info and inspiration

  97. Gayle says:

    I’ve never used Hobb’s batting but I’ve heard wonderful things about it. I will definitely try it some day. I think they sell it at my LQS, Augusta Sewing Center.

  98. Carol Nelms says:

    I love your wool batting. Thanks for the chance to win.

  99. Pamela says:

    I have never used Hobb’s batting before. I am still learning which batting I prefer…100% cotton or a blend. I would love to try your’s!

  100. Pamela says:

    I love working with Fat Quarters and adding larger cuts if solids or a key pattern for the background fabric.

  101. Cindy Dahlgren says:

    I can’t get Hobbs batting up here, but would love to have a chance to. I love to use pre-cuts because I love to use charm packs and layer cakes so I have a chance to use a lot of different fabrics to use. Jadahlgr at Yahoo dot Com

  102. Karen Hootman says:

    I would prefer to buy it at my local fabric store or my big box store (Joann’s).

  103. Karen Hootman says:

    I like to use my precuts on scrap quilts or for appliqué.

  104. Cindy golding says:

    I love the Tuscsny wool. Hand quilts like butter. It also machine quilts beautifully. I have bought both in packages and by the yard in LQS

  105. Cindy golding says:

  106. Cindy golding says:

    Hello again. Christa book looks interesting. I usually buy charm packs. Recently I’ve started buying fat quarter packs for the larger cut of an entire line.

  107. Jan altomare says:

    I haven’t tried Hobbs either. I tried at the GR Quilt Show but I got there too late. They were out of my choice

  108. Jan altomare says:

    I love charms, layer cakes and jelly rolls. Hard to pick a favorite.

  109. Randi Ortega says:

    My favorite is 80/20 and I usually buy from Kingsmen Quilt Supply via website. I just think it’s a wonderful all around batting. I’ve used it for most of my quilts. I love how it washes up.

  110. Randi Ortega says:

    I use jelly rolls to make the jelly roll race quilts and I’ve been using layer cakes to make chevron quilts and 10 minute block quilts. Would love to try some patterns from her book!

  111. Janie M says:

    I buy your Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Cotton Blend Batting from a big box store by the yard. I love how it makes my quilts look cuddly soft after I wash them.

  112. Janie M says:

    Usually my precuts stay precuts until I can decide what to do with them. I need help utilizing them.

  113. Lisa says:

    I’ve only used Hobbs 80/20. I buy it by the 108″ wide 30 yard bolt from my local fabric store.

  114. Lisa says:

    I have several tubs of 5″ square that I precut. I have added purchased precuts to make hst quilts and like how they easily add additional color to my quilts.

  115. Keri says:

    I love Hobbs 80/20 on a roll from Brewer for large projects, but I keep a stash of Heirloom & Tuscany cotton sample squares from Quilt Festival Houston for small art projects.

  116. Rebecca K. says:

    My favourite is the Hobbs Heirloom 80/20. I love the way it handles and drapes in the finished Quilt. I just bought a whole roll from my LQS!

  117. Rebecca K. says:

    I mostly use charm squares and fat quarter bundles to add more variety to my quilts but I have a stash of other precuts that I just need to find time for. I love getting the whole line all at once with precuts!

  118. Sandie G says:

    I’ve never tried Hobbs but several friends love the Hobbs wool so I’d love to try it. I usually get 100% cotton batting in the packages but did try an 80/20 blend off of a roll since I could not get a white batting at my local quilt shops. I’ve used most of the precuts fat quarters,5″,10″ & 2 1/2″ strips. Really love them & would love a copy of Christa’s new book. Thanks

  119. Patti Keene says:

    I like the wool batting usually buy in my big box store or at a quilt show.

    The Cotton Wool blend is my favourite – delicious drape and a bit of extra warmth! I’ve been purchasing from Connecting Threads, and looking for somewhere to buy in Australia!

  121. CariAnn K says:

    I love Hobbs 80/20 batting for my longarm and I usually get it by the yard from local fabric shop.

    Wool batting…for the feel (very soft) although I’ve not yet tried it. Thank you

    I buy my batting on a roll online. I have a longarm so it is easy to store under my frame.

    I love using fat quarters and layer cakes to make quilts because this gives me a great variety of fabrics.

  131. Stacy Claxton says:

    I am so super new to quilting, iv purchased at Joanne’s once, and then off Amazon . I liked the ease of amazon but at Joanne’s I can touch and feel!

  132. Stacy Claxton says:

    So far iv used precursor to make a twister center piece for a future quilt I’d like to put in the middle of quilt top for my 4yr old granddaughter.

  133. Sarah J says:

    I’ll be honest- I haven’t tried your batting yet. I typically use a cotton batting. I have heard great things about your wool batting as well! I typically buy my batting at a big box store, but online is also a really convenient option.

  134. Sarah J says:

    I love precuts- especially charms and FQs. I love the flexibility of FQs, but charms are a great (affordable) way to get a little bit of each print in a line.

  135. Cynthia Crady says:

    I have used the 100% heirloom cotton, and love it. I haven’t ever tried the wool, but I would I would really like to.

  140. Sylvia says:

    Love the wool! I buy it online for special quilts, but hope to acquire a roll in the foreseeable future.

  141. Barbara Kerns says:

    I love Hobbs 80/20. It makes your quilt look traditional but not totally flat. I prefer to buy from a quilt store in a large size so there is left overs

  142. Barbara Kerns says:

    I like to use jelly rolls because you can make the same quilt over and over with different fabrics and they look so different!

  143. Jacob says:

    I actually like their Poly-Down Pillow Pals with Polished Cotton Cover – it’s hard to find good quality inserts for pillows and these work really well from experience

  144. Jacob says:

    I have never actually used pre-cuts so this would be an interesting new world of quilting for me. Be a good introduction to give it a try

  145. Sara says:

    I love wool batting. I always buy it in pre-sized packages.

  146. Carol Tompkins says:

    I like to use the Heirloom 80/20 and I buy it at Joanns.

  147. Diane marie says:

    Have not used hobbs but would love to try the 80/20 heirloom batting. I prefer to purchase from the quilt stores. I Purchase packaged size required for the size quilt made.

  148. Diane marie says:

    I have not used precuts to make my quilts. Have always cut my own shapes. There is always a first time for everything. Thanks for the chance to win christa’s new book.

  149. Tiffany says:

    I love using your fusible batting from Connecting Threads for table runners.

  150. Sabrina Hildebrand says:

    I have never used any Hobbs batting and am still fairly new to quilting. I would love to try some.

  151. Sabrina Hildebrand says:

    Since I am fairly new at quilting I would use precuts as a starting point for my quilt piecing since it takes so long for me to cut large pieces into what I need.

  152. I love your Tuscany Wool Batting. It is so soft! It really makes my quilts feel warm and snuggly. I usually purchase my batting at my local quilting shop, but sometimes I purchase it online. Depending on the project, I will purchase pre-packaged or by the yard. Thanks!

    Also– I love pre-cuts. They are a great way to start a quick and easy quilting project. My favorite is the strips that I can turn into really cool triangle quilts. Who doesn’t love a great triangle quilt!!

  153. LINDA says:

    HI,new quilter here;bought Hobbs Batting and loved it;have not purchased anything else.Love it+currently have a box with a dozen crib size batts at the ready! Thanks for sharing!

  154. Roseanne C. Atkinson says:

    I have heard such good things about Hobbs Batting, yet I have never tried it.

  155. Hilda Hignojos says:

    Hobbs 80/20 is all I use. I prefer it to other brands.And of course, since I’m a Texan, I have to support a Texas company.

  156. Keta Caudillo says:

    I have honestly never used Hobbs batting before. They dont sell it anywhere around here. I normally buy pre-cut pre measured and packaged at our local Wally-world store. No other choices available.☹? I would definitely try it if it was available in our area locally.

  157. Duci says:

    Theres another way you can piece batting that doesnt involved the sewing machine. Pick out two pieces of quilt batting preferably the same color to make for an even look. Using a large needle make large whip stitches the entire length of the seam.
