Batting
You can provide your own batting or purchase Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom (Cotton/Poly blend) Batting from Dar. Batting is sold by the linear inch. To determine the batting cost for your quilt - please visit the Online Estimate page.
Backing
My current favorite wide backing source is a company by the name of Backside Fabrics. They offer a huge variety of QUALITY wide backing fabric at reasonable prices. They are professional to work with and orders are processed quickly and correctly. As an additional perk - If you order $75. of merchandise - shipping is free. And if you sign up for their mailing list - they will email you once a week and tell you what specials they are having. Such a deal!
Thread
For most quilts - I use 100% cotton threads and I have a wide variety of colors on hand in my studio. I can help you to select just the right one! On my machine - I prefer the following brands:

King Tut Egyptian Cotton

100% extra-long strand Egyptian Cotton. It's low lint and was designed specifically for machine quilting. Available in several solid and variegated color-ways.
Signature Cotton Threads

This is a 3-ply thread with superior strength, luster, and low lint properties.  Signature Machine Quilting Thread is designed for longarm machine quilting and loved by many home sewers. It provides excellent sewability with multi-directional designs, free motion, and general sewing techniques.  Available in solid and variegated color-ways.
