I am working on a quilt for my ds. I am getting ready to soon put in the batting. Is it OK to use an old quilt in between the top and back of the quilt?

So long as it is clean, I don't see why not. That's what they had to do in the old days!

Not only OK, but a time-honored tradition. If it's a family quilt, mention it in your signature block.

Measure twice, cut once. While this saying is useful in many ways, I have no qualms about editing my posts.

UFOs completed in 2014: 1 - woohoo! finished my oldest UFO - an apron cut out in the mid-80s with a pattern from the mid-40s! and the bias binding promptly disintegrated in the wash! Ok, it was from my Great-Grandmother's stash, which means it was bought anytime from the 1910's to 1970's.
Projects started recently completed in 2014: 1
New Projects started in 2014: 2
Stash:
sewn in 2014: 0
bought in 2014: 17.25

I know...I'm procrastinating.

Thank you! I am super excited about finishing this quilt. My poor ds. He has to be very patient.
