Do I add batting?

chickie1February 13, 2013

I am using the quilt as you go method to make a quilt for my niece . I am ready to add the inner border which will be 1 3/4 inch when sewed on do I need batting? I'm thinking yes. What do you think?

I think yes. You wouldn't want the border to look flatter than the rest. It also highlights the quilting to have thickness.

Yes, all components of the quilt should have the same batting.
