A couple of weeks ago I quilted this quilt made of children’s clothing. My customer, Mom of 3, had saved all of her kid’s clothing, cut them up and made blocks out of them. Grandma then sewed them all together into a queen sized quilt.

According to the package I saved 7 bottles from the land fill by using this batting. That makes me feel good. Plastic bottles are cut into chips, washed, melted and extruded into fine polyester fibers. That means the batting was made without depleting our precious natural resources.
I am happy with how the batting works in this quilt. It is a thin bat but it shows up the stitching nicely. I washed the quilt once and it wrinkled up into that old fashioned look that I love. It is soft and drapes the same as other polyester battings.
