I used mostly home decorator-weight fabric which made a thick and heavy blanket so no batting was needed.
easy baby blanket tutorial (but you can skip the ironing).
In addition, instead of machine quilting I simply tied this quilt using yarn. Here's a tutorial on How to Tie a Quilt in case you're interested.
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 batting and layer the quilt top, backing and batting the same as shown in 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 :) xoxo
