    Do table runners need batting?

    I found some patriotic fabrics this week and figured I could make a table runner by July 4. Do you put batting in the middle of a table runner? Wouldn't it make it kind of thick?

    You do. You just use a low loft batting.

      I have made several table runners and only use the fleece you buy by the yard. It works great for this and doll quilts too.

        I agree fleece is soft yet supports the main fabric too.Plus its easier to needle through all layers at the same time.
        Quilting is good therapy.

          In the past I made my tablerunners unlined with an opening so I could place heat proof material in them. That way I can put hot dishes on them and take the lining out for washing.

            Now that is an interesting idea...might have to try that.
            I've always just used low loft batting.
