I bought some heavy cordoroy for $2.99 a yard and it is wide enough that I don't have to peice the it to use for backing. Would it be alright to use for backing? If so, would you still use batting? I was thinking about using it for backing for string blocks. You know, they are peiced on muslin so I thought perhaps with all of that it would be heavy enough that I would not need to use batting. I am thinking about using it for a quilt I am making for the soldiers overseas. Thanks for your help.
