    Next quilt will be a flannel (first time for flannel). Wondering what everyone else uses for batting. Some suggestions I've heard is that they don't use batting for a flannel blanket. Just a flannel backing. What do you use?

    I have used batting and I have used an extra layer of flannel as batting and I have used nothing but the top and the flannel backing..... just depends on ur own liking.

    i use either warm & natural or Hobbs 80/20 usually in flannel quilts- we like our quilts to be warm-soft and cozy.
    any good quality cotton batting will work fine.

    I agree with or without would be fine.

    I have never made an all flannel quilt, but use flannel for the back of most of my quilts and always use batting.

    I use the blue plastic covered batting from Joann's. For thicker ones I use the yellow plastic covered. the one is 6 oz and the other 10 oz. Can't afford to buy warm and natural. I give a lot of my quilts away and I tie them also.

    I use batting in my flannel quilts and it really makes warm, cozy quilts. I've used both Hobbs 80/20 and Hobbs wool and both batting types worked well with the flannel. I did take care to machine wash and dry the flannel twice before I used it in the quilts.
