I have never done it and I hear it is wonderful to do. A very dear friend of our family was put in the nursing home and I made a quilt for her, but I want to back it with fleece.
I have a longarm, so I can do an all over pattern, but I'm not sure I feel that confident doing so or how much it will stretch.
So here is what I am thinking....I think I want to put batting in as she is always cold as the ac is always on. So this will make her extra warm.
If I used adhesive spray to help hold the fleece to the batting would that help so there are fewer pucker and gathers if I were long arming the quilt with a large all over pattern. I would try my best to just kinda lay it there and not try to stretch any.....Has anyone done this before and did you get the desired effects that you were looking for???
I can "birth" the quilt and leave the batting out and then do a couple of lines of top stitching across the quilt, but I wanted it a little more fancy...but also don't want to start the project over in case I make the wrong decision on it....LOL.
Any suggestions, help, pictures of both side of one you have done with and without batting would be great. I found a lot of information here on the forum and have slowly been reading thru it all and really don't see what I'm actually thinking of so maybe someone has tried that process and has pictures and can help me out......thanks!!!
