Choose Your Batting Wisely
Did you know there’s batting made especially for long arm quilting machines?
Two American made products just for long arms have arrived from Fairfield Batting Company of Connecticut, and been sent to TinLizzie18 Retail & Learning Centers for distribution.
One is pure poly batting, double folded onto a 20 yard roll.
The second is a 60/40 blend of cotton and poly on a double folded 20 yard roll. TinLizzie18 has an exclusive partnership to distribute this specialized batting from our training facilities in:
- Janesville, Wisconsin
- Salt Lake City, Utah
- San Diego, Ca
- Atlanta, Georgia

Following are just some of the reasons quilters want these two products:
- The thickness is perfect for getting two different color threads (top and bottom) to lock the stitch in the batting and not show the other color of thread on the opposite side. This batting is flat yet just thick enough to get quality stitching and easily set your tensions.
- The poly batting doesn’t shrink and pucker up a quilt—so you can have that fresh pressed look to the quilt. This poly is tough and has some body to it so it handles easy on the machine and will withstand many, many washings.
- The poly also doesn’t retain germs for long as a germ will die on dry poly within 10 hours. Therefore this is the best batting for baby quilts, college dorm rooms, hospitals and elderly.
- The poly and the 60/40 hold together well and doesn’t break down and work through the fabric.
- The poly doesn’t built heat in the needle like some other battings do so this is the batting you would put into your quilt if you are using threads that are heat sensitive like gold metallic. Any thread that is fussy would stitch into this poly better in my opinion because of less resistance. I use this batting for competition.
- The 60/40 has enough poly blended in so that when you fold your quilts and store them they wont retain a crease like 100 percent cotton does,
- The 60/40 is flat and soft and pure white. It has very little shrinkage and is very comfortable to sleep under.
- Shipping can sometimes be expensive with rolls this size, but TinLizzie18 has packaged the rolls in easy to ship boxes. They protect the batting in shipping and the shipping expense is less with a box than without a box.
- The length of these rolls is perfect also so that you can place both rolls on the batting bar at the same time if your machine is extended to 12 feet. This is very handy to have the rolls off of the floor and easy to pull off as much as you need and place it directly from the roller and into the quilt on the machine.
- The price is excellent and you are getting top quality batting that will last for years and years and years in your quilted project.
