What's your favorite batting for quilts used in the summer?

As we are smack dab in the middle of summer I find the temperature fluctuations difficult to sleep! Sometimes I want a down comforter and sometimes just a sheet will do. When making quilts do you take into account the season that they will be used? Do you have a favorite batting that is good for hotter nights during the summer? Maybe I'm the only one with out air conditioning... :-)

I still make "summer" quilts the way everyone did when I was growing up: for a batt use diaper weight cotton flannel and tie the quilt. They are very lightweight and perfect for a nap on a shady porch swing or daybed on a screened porch.

I live in Central Texas and I love Bamboo batting. We have bamboo sheets and they are very comfortable in hot and cool weather. I Would probably go with the Oriental.

Quilter's Dream wool batting is my favorite. I live in central Texas and sleep under it year round. It's warm in the winter, cool in the summer and light weight. A win win win!

Cotton for summer. You’ll still Want to throw off the quilt on a hot night. Sometimes I sleep with a bottle of... Refrigerated bottled water!! Odd thing to cuddle up to, but right against my chest, it helps me sleep *despite* my comfy-but-hot memory foam. Bamboo is a bit cooler but I’ve worked a lot with bamboo... softest stuff ever... but might not hold up as well washing after washing. Hand-made Quilts are *dang* time intensive and way more expensive than store-bought. You want that thing to last forever. ;)

I love dream batting I use either the dream poly, or dream cotton for all my quilts.. and I have used the dream wool too.. I will not use any other brand... I prefer the cotton for summer as it is a bit lighter and cooler..
