    I plan to make some quilts from a lot of left over fabrics that I have. I would like to know where can I get the batting / filling material for the same in Bangalore.

    What should I ask for? If I want to wash the quilt what kind of filling should be used?

    Please suggest.

    You can use fiberfill which will be available in any mattress making (gadhi) shop. This will make the quilt feel soft, light and also easy to wash & dry.

    After filling, close the opening and make nice criss cross stitches to give it a pattern which will also prevent the filling getting accumulated in one side and make it bulge.

    ya,mira is absolutely right.use only fibre-you can machine wash it
    if you use cotton ,it becomes heavy and lumpy after wash-so cotton -bad idea.

    Dear Sunitha.
    You can use a sponge of 8mm (which comes in sheets )and you get them easily....
    It is also easy to wash them using sponge......

    You can also check at Raja Market in Chickpet. This market has all embroidery and stitch materials. You can get sponge sheets there.
