    Need Help With Backing Fabric

    Here are pics of my Crown Royal quilt top. I want to purchase wide quilt backing and am looking for color suggestions. Also, since the top is flannel would it be better to use cotton instead of flannel backing so it won't be quite so heavy. That's what I am thinking. Please help me decide.
    Thanks, Nancy

    flannel? is that real Crown Royal bags or purchased fabric? Just wondering. I'm making blocks with Nu-suede and think I will have to put fusible interfacing on the back of them. I would think cotton backing would work well with your quilt. maybe a print since you have dark and light areas to quilt in. Great quilt!!!

    Marshall's Dry Goods has very good prices and excellent customer service, or at least that's been my experience. Great looking top.

    Flannel back will add weight but it will be nice and warm. Thousands of bolts has many wide backs to choose from

    so does Hancocks of Paducah (more expensive)

    Edited to add that your quilt came out very pretty.

    Personally, I'd go with cotton because of the weight, but if you need further flannel resources I have discovered a site called Flannel World (which makes me giggle, a bit). I haven't ordered from them yet, so I cannot attest to their serveice etc, but they have a good selection!

    You did a wonderful job on your Crown Royal top. I would check out wide backs in both cotton and flannel and go with the colour that matches the top the best. If you are machine quilting than you could use flannel or cotton.

    Depends on how heavy you want it to be.
