The Quilting Bug is a professional long arm machine quilting service located near the Werribee Plaza, Hoppers Crossing.

Batting Types

The Quilting Bug only stocks Matilda’s Own batting. Matilda’s Own presents you with one of the world’s largest ranges of battings. Their manufacturing procedures, techniques and fibres are made to the highest possible standards resulting in the highest quality products.

Their wool and wool/poly blends come prewashed, pre-shrunk and fully machine-washable. You will be hard pressed to find other battings with these features.

The charcoal blend presents the only natural dark fibre in the market and is brilliant for quilting with colours that are darker than cream.

Matilda’s Own is made right here in Australia to a standard the others can only admire.



100% Polyester, 240cm wide - $15 per metre

Matilda’s own polyester is a composite of many different polyester fibres; in order to achieve the right amount of coverage, loft, and softness we have combined a variety of fibres to get the best possible balance. The 100% polyester on a scrim gives a similar drape and stability to the wool blend but with a slightly higher loft.


100% Bamboo, 240cm wide - $22 per metre

Bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly battings as it requires no fertilization, irrigation, pesticides or intervention from man at all during the growing stages. This batting holds 3 times more moisture than cotton, dries 3 times faster and will not allow mould or mildew
to grow.

100% Cotton, 240cm wide - $20 per metre

The 100% pure natural cotton blend is made right here in Australia from Australian cotton with only 2.5% shrinkage. Not only is Matilda’s Own cotton batting double carded and needle punched onto a scrim and virtually seed free, it also has great stability and can easily be quilted up to 10 inches apart.
