Decisions, decisions . . .

I'm getting ready to put the borders on my Swoon quilt for my darling daughter . . .


. . . and that brings me to a weighty (no pun intended) decision: what batting to use?

You see, this will be a humongous wall-hanging in a loft apartment with a nice, tall ceiling. I don't know if I should stick to a cotton batting like I'm accustomed to, or if I should go with something that won't be so heavy?

After all, this is going to hang on three hooks that will support a hanging rod in the hanging sleeve; the wall is a standard drywall number. I'll be trying to hit the studs in the wall, but I'm still worried.


Anyone out there have experience with hanging large quilts? This one will be queen size. 

I've been looking around, and there's a dizzying array of options.
There's a batting called "Air-lite"....


There's my old faithful, "warm-n-natural"....


And there's even some with bamboo in them!



Help!!

Love,
