Happy Cloud Batting - Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive Quilt Batting

Happy Cloud Batting

How many times have you been told “it’s what’s inside that counts”?  When it comes to quilts, you just can’t have a quilt without batting. Our EXCLUSIVE line of batting is called Happy Cloud, and that’s exactly what it feels like! Treat your quilt sandwiches right, without breaking the bank, with Happy Cloud batting.

The four types of Happy Cloud Batting!

Happy Cloud Batting Types

The first thing you might notice is that each Happy Cloud package has a different color. This cute color code denotes our different types of batting material. We have four types of batting, including: 80/20 Silky Blend; Cotton Simply Natural; 50/50 Cotton Blend and 50/50 Bamboo Blend.

The 80/20 Silky Blend is 80% Natural Cotton and 20% Superior Polyester. This is one of our favorite batting types because it’s super soft and very comfortable.

It comes in eleven size options: Craft, Tablerunner, Crib, Twin, Throw, Queen and King. We also have packs of precut squares in several sizes, which you can read more about in our More Happy Cloud blog post. They are great for many projects, such as practicing longarm quilting on your sewing machine, but most of all, we love them for mini-quilts!

14" squares are great for mini quilts

The 50/50 Bamboo Blend is a sweet combination of 50% Select Bamboo and 50% Natural Cotton.  Bamboo is a breathable, lightweight fiber and a great choice for summertime quilts and throws. It is also naturally antibacterial and eco-friendly!

This type of batting is available in these six size options: Craft, Crib, Twin, Throw, Queen and King.

50/50 Cotton Blend is of 50% Natural Cotton and 50% Superior Polyester.  This batting is very quilter-friendly because it’s strong and can withstand a lot of handling, yet soft to the touch.

It is also available in these six size options: Craft, Crib, Twin, Throw, Queen and King.

Cotton Simply Natural is 100% Natural Cotton batting.  This is a terrific choice for bed quilts, and once washed it will shrink slightly to give your quilt a vintage-worn look and feel.  If you love the crinkly texture of a washed quilt, this is for you!

This type is offered in these seven size options: Craft, Tablerunner, Crib, Twin, Throw, Queen and King.

  1. This is excellent information. I will try this batting.🌷
    I really appreciate your guidance on specific use. I like that about FQS😀🎈💕

  2. Where is this new batting made?
    Will you be offering a sample pack to purchase with a small piece of each type to see in person?

  3. I’ve used 100% cotton batting to keep my quilts all cotton, but it seems so heavy when used on the bed. Do any of these feel light and somewhat fluffy? Making a new quilt for my little granddaughter and sure she won’t want a heavy quilt. Thank you for this article

    1. I used the bamboo on a baby quilt and really liked it. I didn’t think it was heavy at all.

  4. This is wonderful! I will be buying the the smaller ones for craft. This will give me an idea if I will like them. Thank you for bringing new items and ideas.
