Batting question

I have a question for you. I bought this Thermore batting at a guild meeting, and it seems great. Thin and soft and drapable; all good. The only problem is that it’s a bit sticky – which normally is good for quilting - but in this case I cannot seem to get rid of the folding creases. I have put batting in the dryer before, but somehow I am reluctant to do so with this one. I am a bit worried it will shred or get distorted as it’s really thin.

Have you tried this batting, and if so; how did you get rid of the lines?

  1. Sorry, I’m not familiar with this batting. I hope someone else can tell you more about it!

  3. I'm not familiar with it, but have you tried hanging it to see if the wrinkles will come out on their own?

  4. I have used Thermore and really like it. You mentioned that you got it at a guild meeting. From a vendor or a fellow quilter? If the latter, it might have been stored a long time or subjected to heat. It looks like it has actual creases where the batting is pressed flat. You might just want to cut from it for small projects. I have an art quilter friend who does just that.

  5. I think you could spritz the fold with water and throw it in the dryer on cool for a few minutes. Good luck!

  6. I would try Krista's suggestion on a thin strip to start with for a test. Good luck, hope it works!
