    Thought I would introduce myself since I have been lurking for quite some time. I live in Missouri and I have been retired for 3 1/2 years. I have made several quilts since I retired.

    I have been reading the board and looking at all the beautiful quilts that everyone has made. I have gotten some ideas from everyone.

    I have a question about what to put inside a flannel baby quilt. The top is flannel and the back is flannel. Should I just put flannel inside or batting or nothing at all? I need to quilt it and I'm not sure as what to put inside.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello and welcome from Ontario. I usually put a Warm & Natual batt in my baby quilts, but all of the options you have mentioned are okay.

    Welcome from NH!! As far as putting in a batting, 2 flannels are warm. I think it would, for me, depend on where it is ending up (the state - you know warm or cold climate).

    Thanks for all of the welcomes and suggestions. I think I'm going to put flannel on the inside.

    Hello and welcome from SW Iowa. Glad to have you here. I would use warm and natural if it was me.

    Hello and Welcome to the board :D:D:D

    You can use nothing if the baby lives in a very warm climate, or if it is going to be used as a summer quilt.
    Use flannel if you want it warmer and batting for a colder climate :D:D:D
