A Plush Addict Guide To: Quilt Wadding (Batting)

Whether you’re new to quilting or a dab hand in that area, choosing which wadding you’ll need for your quilt can be a tricky business.

Not only are there loads to choose from, but there are so many words and phrases associated with wadding that just go straight over your head, am I correct?

Well we’re here to help answer all the questions you’ve never had answered, teach you the basic lingo and hopefully put your mind at ease for the next time you need to purchase wadding or attach wadding to your quilt project.

Wadding, or ‘batting’ as it is known in the US, is the layer of material in between your quilt top and backing fabric, and the type of wadding you choose will determine the way your sewed quilt will look and feel.

The first thing you need to consider is how thick you want your finished quilt to look. This is where the ‘high loft’ and ‘low loft’ come into play.

Cuddle Puzzle Quilt: Pieces By Polly

If you follow me on Instagram you’l know that I recently made this puzzle quilt from super soft plush fabric. The moment I saw Polly’s quilt shared by Shannon Fabrics I swooned and instantly fell in love. It’s a rainbow! It’s a jigsaw! It’s super soft and fluffy! These are all things that appeal greatly to Mrs Plush and I just had to give it a try. Continue reading “Cuddle Puzzle Quilt: Pieces By Polly”

Urban Zoologie Minis Now In Stock

Hello Friends!

I think Ann Kelle’s Monkeys Royal was one of the very first quilt cotton fabrics we stocked, and we still carry it today. “Urban Zoologie” has been a hugely popular collection for us and it’s back, this time a bit smaller, and in my opinion even cuter! The colour palettes have been reworked and I have to say that I’m totally in love with the pink colourway which is contrasted with a soft grey and has a hint of mint (rhyme intended). There are more animals too choose from and some old favourites too. There’s a selection of multicoloured cuties including adorable foxes, chicks, monkeys and owls.

Browse the full collection here and we’ve put together a couple of fat quarter bundles for you too.

Bundle-Pink-Hero

Bundle-Bermuda-Hero

Do you have a favourite? I think I’m a little bit in love with the pink elephants.

Forever Fiesta: A Quilt For Nanny Plush

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll already know that I have recently made my mum a quilt in break neck speed. I have to admit to being a bit of a fly by the seat of my pants crafter and often just make hasty, unplanned decisions of what to make next, usually starting then and there (this is my justification for having a big fabric stash – you never know what inspiration is just around the corner!)
