I used mostly home decorator-weight fabric which made a thick and heavy blanket so no batting was needed.
How to Tie a Quilt in case you're interested. Also, instead of making binding for the quilt, I assembled the quilt top to the backing fabric like you would a baby blanket. Or in other words, I took the quilt top and my backing fabric and with right sides facing together I sewed a 1/4" seam allowance around the perimeter of the quilt leaving a 7-10" opening. Then I turned the quilt right side out through the opening and then whip-stitched the opening closed. To see a visual on how I did this, see steps 2-4 of my easy baby blanket tutorial.
The result is a super soft and heavy quilt. My mom said it is really warm too! :) If you wanted to add batting, I would use a medium-loft and layer the quilt top, backing and batting the same as step 4 of this coaster tutorial (but obviously it would be on a bigger scale).
Thanks for letting me share this with you. I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. :)
And with that, I'll leave you with another pretty picture of a quilt roll <3 br="">3>
