I am making training pants with a soaker made of 2 layers of double sided terry, with velour inner. I am wondering if there is any advantage or disadvantage to quilting the soaker and the velour. My logic was that this would be more comfortable with less shifting/bunching of the soaker and speed up absorption. Is this true or am I just making more work for myself?

We're not quite to the training pants stage yet, but here's my 2 cents.<br><br>
I think quilting would make it less absorbant (pressing the layers together) and make it take longer to dry... I would tend to not do it.<br><br>
Could you do it later if you find you want to, and try without first?

The only quilting I've ever bothered with in a pair of trainers was a line of stitching straight down the middle of the soaker, from front to back. I only did this when I used cotton batting as the soaker material - quilting a woven or knit fabric would not be needed, and would make lines of stitching for the pee to run through!<br><br>
So yeah, I'd give it a try without first, to see if you still think it's needed. If you have bunching problems, then you know to do a bit of quilting.
