    Add me to the list of just finding your post today. GREAT QUESTION but I find as with most opinions that there seems to be two sides of the fence and not definitive right or wrong. I personally always put a light batting in my table toppers, runners.

    I just put a thin batting in as, if you would want to put a candle on it, it would not be to thick. I think most people want just the "look" with out the thickness. That's my opinion any way.

    Just was looking for help and found this post. Just joined today. I am doing a table runner for a friend and she does not want quilting on it. If that is the case, can I forget any batting? I don't want the pieces to shift and wonder if a 16" x 90" runner will have issues with a batting inside the top and bottom. Thanks for any ideas.

    I've seen that at crafts fairs too. I like putting batting in my table runners, but I guess some people don't. I use warm and natural.

    I used a thicker flannel backing, no batting, loved the result. This time I don't have cream flannel so I ironed on some pellon, but it seems too stiff. I probley will remove it and go get thicker flannel again.

    For table runners and small items I use very thin batting Quilters Dream Poly Request Batting I buy throw size 60 x 60 sold at the Fabric Depot.com in Portland Oregon I buy it online. It works very nice and is soft and thin I do use it for handquilting but the package says also useful in machine quilting.

    The first table runner I made I was thinking it was to protect the table from things that might mark it, whether heat or wet or ... I used too puffy a polyester, and it never laid completely flat. So now I decide what I'm going to use it for, then either put in warm 'n natural, with our without thermo-whatever-it-is, or flannel, just to smooth it out.
