Back in December I basted the backing onto a quilt that had been put on the shelf for a couple of years. (This is the quilt: http://www.plentifulpennies.com/2010...ing-table.html ).
It took 3 weeks to baste. My problem is that the backing fabric feels too much like plastic. (It was sold as quilters extra-wide backing from the LQS). It only became much more noticeable when I pulled out another quilt in progress - which was backed with calico and that quilt felt much softer and cuddlier.
This "plastic" quilt will be hand quilted. So I'm trying to decide whether I should change the backing and go for something more soft or not.
What would you do???
