    For a table runner. The directions don't say and I have no clue and I'm ready to do the back of my runner. TIA

    I like warm and natural, it lays nice and flat, quilts and washes well, too :D:D:D

    I just made an autumn runner and used just regular low-loft polyester batting. It was a leftover scrap and worked really well.

    I have used an iron on batting (cotton) for runners that I've made. It is a little thinner than regular batting. You'll probably have to ask for it at your quilt store. I really like using it!

    I do the samething. I don't waste my W&N on anything unless I have a scrap piece leftover.

    We like to use Insul-brite, so you can set warm stuff on it if you like while protecting the table underneath.

    I see that you got many suggestions. I always use warm and natural, but the other suggestions sound good, too.

    For my practice items like table runners, cat quilts. I use the batting from Walmart. It is what it is...very thin...for my laptop quilts and for future quilts I will use Warm and Natural. Joanne Fabric has queen size in a bag and with the 50 percent off coupon its only 12.00.

    I use a poly batting in table runners. I don't want them to get that shrinky puckered look after washing them.

    i've used just a middle layer of muslin (prewashed) just to help keep any shadow/seams from showing through, but to keep it flat. i've also done them with warm & natural and with poly low-loft. i haven't had much luck with fusable batting but lots of people like them.
