I have a question for all you ladies. I was just looking at a quilt on "pictures". The lady had used minkee as her backing but had also used batting. I've used fleece on a couple of denim throws I've done and I've used minkee on all the (2 or 3) baby blankets I've done but I didn't use batting with any of them. The denim and the fleece was sufficient and I thought the minkee was as well on the baby blankets but I could be wrong. My brothers and my dad seem to think, although they know nothing about quilting at all, that if a quilt doesn't have batting it's not a real quilt. This is because my grandmother always used batting.
So what to do? I know I won't add batting to denim throws even using flannel as the backing, they are quite warm enough without anything else added. But the baby blankets and just regular throws using minkee as the backing? What do you think, batting or no?
