Is the quilt out of flannel or cotton? If it is flannel it should not need batting and may not need it anyway. Depends on how heavy you want it to be. I have used fleece for backings and did not use any batting. I tied one and quilted the other on the machine. I liked the way the tied one came out better. But I am not very good at quilting anyway. I like the look of your quilt. Looks very cozy!
