What is the best batting for quilting a jewel box quilt using a walking foot and a domestic machine?

I use "warm and natural" . That is my favorite batting for most of my quilting projects.

I prefer a poly batting for my quilts and recommend 'Request Dream Poly' from Quilters Dream Poly. It is so light so it rolls up easily for quilting with a domestic machine. Happy quilting T.

We use Warm and Natural almost exclusively. It's produced only 70 miles from our house so we like to support local industry. (and remember! There is a top and bottom to that batting!) But I've also heard very good things about the Dream Poly. I used it once for a baby blanket and it was very nice.

How do you know the top from the bottom of the batting??? I never realized.
