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.

RE: Do I add batting?

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