    What do you use for batting when making tablecloths or table runners? I was thinking flannel, but does flannel shrink more than batting?? I made my sister a tablecloth using Warm and Natural, she thought it was too thick for a tablecloth. Your thoughts please

    I made a tablecloth and used just the top and flannel for the back no batting at all, machine quilted it and it came out very nice. Washes beautifully, no shrinking.

    I use that really thin stuff, similar to fusible but without the sticky. i get it by the bolt at Joanne's with my coupon.

    Another for vote for "no batting" in tablecloths. I do use W&N in the placemats, though. Just to give them a little more body to lay flat.

    Thanks everyone. When you don't use anthing for the center layer do you have plain backing.
    Thanks everyone
