Ha ha ha ...Youngduncan...I did that one year, i didn't have time to make a Christmas table runner but I had plenty of Christmas fabric. I ironed the ends at a point and placed on the table under a vase. After Christmas I washed it and placed back with the fabrics. I did make a table runner for the next year with Insulbrite in it because I sometimes place a very hot dish on it.

I use 80/20 and they come out really nice.

I either use 80 20 or more often use fusible fleece which lays so nice and flat and then can stitch in the ditch

I always use batting-usually 80/20 I like the difinition it gives to the quilting. When I wash them I dry them flat and hand block them and they look very nice. I think they shrink more in the dryer.

Batting, yes, but I like a lighter batting than what I use for quilts.

I once used fusible interfacing instead of batting just because I wanted to use it up. I thought it worked really well. Body without the thickness of batting. Maybe it depends on the intended use. For just decoration, I like fluffy. But not on the dining table under glasses, etc. Then, flat is better for me.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]604447[/ATTACH]Pellon fleece interfacing - 45" wide, low loft, but enough that quilting shows, grabby so it sandwiches nicely, available fusible and non - I like the non.

I prefer to use a single layer batting. Gives at last a little dimension to it.
