Has anybody used a purchased fleece throw as backing for a wintery quilt? If so, did you also use batting?

In this area, we have been using fleece on both sides of a throw or lap sized quilt, no batting and not much in the way of quilting.

I have used fleece for the backing on several quilts.  Since I wanted them extra warm I also used a lightweight batting.  I quilted mine the same as I would any other quilts.

Never used Fleece but I have used flannel and chennile with no batting and they worked just fine.  Quilted the same as any other quilt. Interesting though I might try that if I find an old fleece blanket or something laying around.

I personally have not but several friends do this a lot.  Usually, you probably don't need batting but it depends on who you give it to and it's use.  I would probably still put some batting in it.
