Is this batting preshrunk? If not, how much shrinkage can be expected?
I have been quilting for many years, but never tried this batting until now. It is very thin and needs to be handled carefully or will tear easily. Unlike newer 80/20 batt blends, quilting really does need to be 1/4" to 2" apart, or else the batt may shift around after washing. Shrinkage is in the 3-5% range, so close quilting really is needed. That being said, I believe this is the only batt to use if you're going for an old-fashioned, thin, antique-look quilt. While drying a quilt in a dryer is generally frowned upon, I really did want to get as much pucker as possible, so decided to chance the hot dryer. Worked like a charm. Puckers all around! And I think the overall loft is about 1/8" - just what I was going for. This batting is priced lower than Hobbs or Warm and Natural, and gives an authentic, old-timey look and feel. It's well worth the time and money to experiment with this batt....

Tips on Choosing a Bat Mitzvah or Bar Mitzvah Gift
Among the rituals of Jewish culture, the bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah are very important and well known. The bar mitzvah, or bat mitzvah for girls, usually takes place on or around boy's 13th birthday (12th birthday for girls). By reading a portion of the Torah during the Shabbat (Sabbath) service, the child shows he or she is now an adult in the eyes of the congregation. A celebration with food, dancing and bar mitzvah gifts for the birthday boy (bat mitzvah gifts for a girl) follows the service. If you've never attended a bar or bat mitzvah before, you may wonder what's appropriate to give as a present. It's easy to find the right gifts just by following a few simple rules.
Best Duvet Covers for Each Season
For those who use duvet blankets year-round, duvet covers allow you to change patterns and color to match every season. Along with the decor of the bedroom, a duvet cover may enhance the ambiance of the entire room or supply it with rich colors and textures for the ultimate comfort factor. If you purchased an expensive duvet, covering it throughout the year will keep it in good shape and allow you to wash it without compromising the batting. Look below to learn the best duvet covers for each season. Spring: Once the evenings start warming up, lighter fabrics like satin provide sheen and style to any bedroom. Satin duvet covers are most often comprised of fabrics like nylon, rayon or silk to provide durability as well as comfort. For spring, lighter colors, including pastels or variations of cream and beige, brighten the room. Summer: During warm summer nights, cotton duvets are one of the most common fabric choices. Light and airy, cotton is also easy to clean and comes in virtually every color and pattern. For the summer season, try a white duvet cover, which will make the room appear more open and spacious. A cotton blend that contains polyester is also an ideal choice for summer, because it is soft, requires simple washing and does not wrinkle. Fall: For the fall season, a duvet cover that is warm enough for intermittent chilly nights is an ideal choice. Microsuede duvet covers offer a soft feel to bedding and come in a variety of colors. This material is easy to care for and machine washable. For fall, choose earthy colors like beige, brown, dark green or burgundy for a seasonal look. Winter: A luxurious duvet cover is a favorite option for warmth during the winter months. Velvet is a soft fabric that comes in a variety of rich colors and provides plenty of insulation for cold nights. The luxurious texture looks good in any style of room decor. For winter months, choose deep, rich colors like burgundy, plum, forest green or chocolate to enhance the room. View All Duvet Covers Back to Guides Directory View All Duvet Covers
