Maybe Using 2 Battings in 1 Quilt along with an Adhesive question
I am considering the possibility of using 2 battings 80/20 and a poly in my parents' quilt to give it a nice thickness and to help give it a little more weight to make my dad happy. The quilt lady at Hancocks suggested I use a quilting adhesive spray called Sullivan's Quilting Spray to adhere the battings together so they don't shift during quilting, then I mentioned to her that I am hand-quilting with a lap hoop and she said she did not know if the adhesive would make it harder to hand-quilt through the layers of the quilt or whether it would gum up my hand quilting needle. Have any of you used an adhesive spray on battings before? If so did it gum up your needles or make it harder to pass a needle through the layers of the quilt? If you had a good quilting experience using an adhesive which adhesive spray do you recommend using and where do you buy it and how expensive is it?
Best to you and thanks bunches,
