    Batting weight for table runner

    Does anybody have a suggestion for a good batting weight for a table runner? I was wondering if just flannel would look too thin. I'm just going to stitch in the ditch so no fancy quilt stitches will be on display.

    The flannel would work but pre-shrink it first. Also a thin cotton or 80/20 cotton/poly batting works well.

      Don't use poly batting, it is too thin. Ask me how I know! Although I used it anyway.

        I used W&N and mine came out great. I've also used leftover Quilter's Dream Select. Shoot, I use whatever is in my batting scraps!

          I think you could use whatever you have, but from my experience I've found the thinnest one available is better. If it's meant to be warmer like a blanket or a throw, then use a thicker batting.

            I often use Insul-bright on my table runners if they will be used in the kitchen, that way a warm casserole/serving dish can safely be placed on them.

            Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

              That's a brilliant idea Asta.
