    Sort of depends on the look you want. I prefer a light batting, it gives a more demensional effect. If you don't want or need batting, then just put a fabric back and either bind or turn RSO and finish! Pics please!

    It will hang better with a batting. I use a firm one like Warm & Natural.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I agree, exactly what I do...think the batting helps the quilt hang flatter on the wall
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I buy flannel when it's 50% off the clearance price at JoAnns and use that as batting in my wallhangings. This way I can add some quilting if I want and it doesn't have to be spaced a certain distance.
