Product Review: Luna Quilt Batting by Moda

I have been using Luna batting for over a year now and realized there are some people that still have not tried this wonderful batting.  I LOVE IT! It is a must have batting when making any and all my quilts.  It is the only brand I use now for my batting. 

What is Luna Quilt Batting?
Luna Quilt batting is a Moda Fabrics brand of batting that is made from natural fibers such as bamboo, cotton,  and soybeans.  Because of the needle-punch technology used, it enables them to avoid the use of any binders or resins. Therefore all the battings are chemical free so they are safe for all walks of life.  I especially love the softness of the batting and the wonderfully hand sewn look the quilts have once washed.  Luna batting is great for the machine quilter and the traditional hand quilter.  Currently, there are three types of Luna Batting, Kyoto, Soy Soft, and Luna Loft.


Kyoto is a bamboo blend batting. {50/50 Bamboo Cotton Blend}
It is naturally anti-bacterial and eco-friendly.  Bamboo is softer than cotton, biodegradable and hypo-allergenic.  Blended with cotton makes the perfect natural quilt batting. Stitches can be up to 8" apart with the Kyoto batting and will withstand repeated use and multiple washings becuase of the super durable substrate contained in the middle of the batting. 




Soy Soft is a soybean blend batting. {50/50 Soy Organic Cotton Blend} 
It is naturally anti-microbial and eco-friendly.  Soybean protein fiber has the luster of silk and the feel of cashmere.  The breaking strength of soybean protein fiber is higher than wool, plain cotton and silk. Stitches can be up to 8" apart with the Soy Soft batting as well and withstand repeated use and multiple washings because of the super durable substrate contained in the middle of the batting. 





Luna Loft is a soft comfort blend. {80/20 Cotton Polyester Blend}
Luna Loft is made with long staple cotton and the softest polyester which makes this the softest cotton-poly blend batting I have ever felt. It is also made without bleaching or harsh chemicals. You can actually stitch up to 10" apart with this batting because of the ultralight and super strong substrate contained in the middle.






I do have to say although I love using all three of the battings by Luna, Soy Soft has got to be my absolute favorite one to quilt with.

Try some today and let me know which one is your favorite!

  1. This sounds very interesting. The loft sounds perfect for a fun tied quilt. Does the 80/20 batting shrink up like 100% cotton for that old wrinkly look?

  10. This is all very interesting...I'm also interested in which of the three shrinks up the most for the crinkly, old-fashioned look.

  12. Thanks for the info, Angela. I am looking into getting some of the Luna batting and I'm curious as to why you prefer the soy cotton blend over the bamboo cotton blend? I thought I'd get the bamboo cotton blend, but now I'm not so sure. Thanks for your insight!

  14. Hi! Was looking at this fabric online. What would you say the thickness is, is it firm at all, could it be stacked together to make a thicker padding for re-upholstering carseats? Would you recommend it for outdoor uses?
