Question My first Table topper

Thank you QB members. I saw a tutorial on this board and attempted it. I like it but have a question ..
If I use batting under the top, won't it be soft? Thick quilting is beyond my capabilities!
I want to place tall candle stands on it, so would batting be a wrong choice? If so, what should I use between the top and the back?
I would appreciate any advice you have for me.

I would use interfacing instead of batting, any kind that I had laying around.

You did a great job on the table runner!

I use Warm and White -- it is not thick and it quilts real nice. I have also used a Pellon fleece -- that is also nice and flat but since I sometimes set hot stuff on the table runner I prefer the cotton.

Beautiful. I made a few of those and used low loft batting and they are just fine. I can put things on them. They lay flat.

Pellon fleece sold BTY with the interfacings at the fabric store. It comes fusible and non fusible both. I prefer the non. It's 45" wide so most runners fit on a 3/8 yard. Your runner will be lovely. I like the lights with the dark feature fabric.
