I used fleece to back a throw quilt for my husband and now everyone wants me to use fleece on their quilts. But when I started researching fleece backings, instead of just doing it, I got confused. Do you prefer Minky or fleece? Why? Do you normally include batting? Why or why not? What type of Minky and/or fleece do you use for backing -anti-pill or double brushed? And all the types of Minky - Wow! - any preferences? Is embossed okay? My local JoAnn's does not carry Minky but claims their store brand is the same - agree/disagree? And finally I've found some good places to buy fleece but where is the best place to buy Minky? I shop online but live in the Baltimore/DC area, will be in Lancaster this Friday and the Seattle/ Portland area the end of the month. So online or local what is your favorite Minky source?
