Although I would say I'm a fairly competent sewer with over 50 gears experience, I have never made a quilt. I'd now like to make a cot quilt for our new grandchild and could do with some advice about batting. I am planning to use two quilt panels to make the quilt reversible - and it seems like an easy option for a first attempt. I've explored various brands of batting online and I'm now thoroughly confused! Our local fabric shop has just one brand/weight of batting and it feels very thin to me. I believe there is an iron-on batting available and I wondered if it would be OK to use that on both the fabric panels to make it a bit thicker/warmer, or would it make the quilt too heavy or prevent it draping?
Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.
