Use Old Blankets for Quilt Batting

Old wool like blankets make great filler or batting for quilts, especially the scratchy ones.

I knew I couldn't be the only one still using Gran's Depression era quilting tips:)


I'm on the hunt for a plain (no print) duvet cover to use as instant top and backing - I mean to insert the old wool blanket, baste it down, then hand quilt it using a feathers and shell pattern. I know it will take me many happy hours over the next few years to finish and I'm really looking forward to it!

Your post brought back a lot of memories. I remember as a child, sleeping under those scratchy wool blankets. My older brothers were in the Army. When they were discharged they brought those 'Army blankets' home.

You are so right. The best place for those things is inside a quilt!
