Hi all,

Got a question to ask when using fleece as a backing would you still quilt the front to it as you do with wadding and backing, or do you just stitch the fleece to the front via a binding?

Hi Carol,

You would quilt the front to the fleece and then bind it in your favourite way.

Thanks Glenda and Irene.

Never used fleece for backing before thought I would give it a go.

I sew them inside out first then turn through and sew a zigzag around the edge,then hand quilt in places (dependant on size as to how much) but you do really need to hold the layers together as you would a 'normal' quilt. Make lovely baby ones with fat quarter fabric and fat quarter fleece saves binding!

I used fleece as a backing on this quilt. I cut the fleece larger than the top then quilted. Then I trimmed the fleece to 1/2 to 3/4 inch all round and folded to the front, then zigzagged all the way around, folding the corners into a mitre.

I've just posted about fleece in quilt-as-you-go in the new projects thread, but I may as well repeat myself here. I've never used fleece in quilt as you go, but I think the stretch might be a bit of a problem, so if you are considering doing that, cut the fleece backing pieces larger than you need, and trim after quilting.
