I want to lead anyone with batting questions to this amazing lady named Debbi Trevino! She did an outstanding job compiling her many years of researching different battings. I have used her PDF file to make decisions on which battings that I want to test further for myself. I learned of her PDF file from an Episode of Quilt It! off of QNN TV (Episode 211). The webpage for her file is at Alder Avenue Quilting . I wish you all luck on your quilting endeavors!
