What batting should I choose, is a question new quilter's often ask. Selection of batting is determined by several factors.
Batting Loft: How thick do you want your quilt? Batting comes in different thicknesses called loft. Low loft batting, thickness is under a quarter inch. Medium loft batting is between a quarter inch and a half an inch. High loft batting is thicker than a half inch.
How you will finish your quilt: If you machine or hand quilt you will want to use a low loft or medium loft batting. If you will hand tie your quilt then you can use a high loft batting.
How warm do you want your quilt?: High loft battings are generally warmer than low and medium loft batting.
