    I also like Hobbs Thermore batting...very thin so the runner lays flat, but shows the quilting lines.

    Some I do and some I don't. It is according if it is for someone who will really appreciate it or for someone who may not even look twice at it.

    Like the feel of batting and love to hand quilt a little runner.

    Is this the fleece like sweatshirts are made of or something else? Can't think what you mean by fleece !

    In the past I have used fleece or runners or table toppers. Just gives the project a little body.

    I have always used flannel or felt for my table runners.

    Sometimes I use batting and sometimes not. I like the cheap fleece throws (about $2.00 each) They make really nice batting for table runners and candle mats. You can get quite a few out of one throw.

    I've done it both ways. Lately, I've just been putting a layer of flannel between my top and back and it gives it a nice weight.
