This is a 3 ft x 3 ft  square. Any suggestion on what to use for an edge? I was thinking a light batting in beween the wool and a natural colored flannel fabric on the back.

This looks so snuggly.  I can't really advise on the wadding (I use quilters dream which has a thinner weight), but how about sewing the scraps together and doing your binding with the strips of that?

You could bind it with the same flannel that you are going to use on the back of the quilt.  Or you could find a cordinating cotton that has similar colors and use that.  I think either way would look nice.

Anther option is to do the pillow case method.  Sew the fabrics right sides together, leave an opening, then turn it inside out, and topstich around it.  Then you wouldn't need anything to bind it.
