I spent many years stockpiling Warm & Natural batting using my 40% coupons at JoAnn's. Whenever I could, I'd buy the maximum number of yards allowed, 10 at a time. I'm just now (more than 10 years later) running out of batting.
I haven't been using my batting stash consistently - sometimes it's just easier to have the longarm quilter provide it. Sometimes I like a different batting. My all time favorite is Dream Wool. I love the way it quilts and washes, but it's expensive and not suitable for every quilt.
Recently I tried Warm & Plush batting. It is awesome! Thicker and softer than regular Warm & Natural, but it's not readily available. I got a queen sized batt from fabric.com and used it in my last quilt. The Warm Company's website says it's "available for a limited time" and you can only buy a crib size, queen size or by the yard. As my leftovers weren't large enough for the next quilt I want to quilt, I started searching for some more Warm & Plush. I found some reviews somewhere that mentioned an Amazon.com seller who had it on the roll - 25 yards x 90 inches and just over $6 per yard, about $100 off the retail price.
I hesitated a while, talked to some local friends who wanted to share and as a result, clicked it into my shopping cart. Guess what arrived today? I may be set for batting for another 10 years!

In other news - thanks to all who shopped my destash sale. I will be adding items, probably once a week on Fridays. Please check and see if you'd like any of my stash to be your stash!
