I agree with Copycat and Earthwalker. One of my first quilts was a denim top with fleece backing and batting. I didn't realize at the time that batting wasn't really needed! It is heavy and very warm. We keep the house cool and I snuggle under it along with a cat or two. I also made one with denim, batting, and flannel. It is lighter weight, but still very warm. We like the weight.
