    Bubble velour as backing

    Has anyone ever used the bubble velour from Joann's for a backing on a cotton pieced baby quilt? Should I wash the top before I add the batting and backing; since the velour is nylon? What kind of batting? Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    you should not wash an unquilted-unfinished top before sandwiching, quilting and binding...it will fray- be quite a mess
    you can use what ever batting you want- some people choose to not use batting when using fleece for the back-some people do like batting- what ever you choose.
    i've never seen nylon velour...i've used bubble minkie- which is a polyester fleece...is that what you mean???
    minkie quilts up beautifully & makes very snuggly soft cozy quilts (my granddaughter's call them the 'get-naked' quilts- they love wrapping in them right after their baths.)
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Yes it is polyester . Thanks . I think I will put a real thin batting in it and use the fleece for the binding also.
