What can I use instead of batting?
If you wish to have something lightweight in the middle of your quilt, you can create a 100% cotton fabric “batting.” It simply is a neutral cut of quilting fabric that adds just a bit of weight and just a little warmth because of the three layers of cotton. An easy alternative is a quality cotton flat bedsheet.
