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!

The BIG 30 Gift-away!

So it's official!  I have turned the big 3-0 today!!!  WHOO RAH!  I have always heard of people dreading turning 30, but I am so excited about being part of the Thirties club, I think people think I am nuts.  My twenties were great... a lot happened in my twenties that I loved {don't worry, I am not about to list out what happened in the last ten years of my life.}, but I am ready for a new decade of my life and I know it is going to be FANTASTIC!

So, to kick of my thirties... I went bowling... along with some friends and family.  We had so much fun... I think I am going to have to do this monthly. 

Who says turning 30 can't be fun?

In celebrating me turning 30 today, I am going to give someone else a special Birthday gift from me.  All I am going to tell you is that you will not want to miss out on receiving this gift.  {HINT: It might involve some fabric and some sweets}  And all you need to do is leave me a comment and you are automatically entered in the drawing.  EASY PEASY! 

To make it even more fun {for me} I am going to stretch my birthday out until Monday night at midnight.  I will announce my birthday gift winner on Tuesday, April 6.

So, who will be my lucky birthday winner?
