I have to get a Christmas present finished up (I know, realllllllly late!!!!) as I will be going to Florida to see my friend in July. The quilt is all pieced together and I am stumped by the batting I should use. It is warm in his part of Florida all year round, with the winter temps averaging around 75-77 degrees. I am considering just making it a throw instead of using a batting. I thought about just using some flannel as it would have some warmth to it but not too warm. Also, with the cost of batting these days, I'm not sure I want to use one of my battings I have stashed away. Has anyone else ever made a "quilted throw"? What are your feelings about using flannel instead of batting? If I go with the flannel, is one layer enough or should I go with 2? It is a Dr. Seuss fabric quilt so I will be doing some wonky line quilting on it.
