For my first quilt I'm going to make a queen size rag quilt (using fleece) for my son's 30th birthday. I've seen two methods of doing the batting:

1-cut batting just smaller than the rag square and quilt the sandwich by stitching an X across the square. The batting is just small enough to not be caught in the seams when sewing the squares together.

2-use another layer of fleece for the batting and cut the same size as your squares. It will just be another edge showing in the rag seam.

Which do you all recommend? Which would be cheaper: fleece or batting?

Your help will be greatly appreciated. Fleece is 50% off at JoAnn's so I want to go there after work today.

Thanks,
