    I am so happy to find this site. Thru the years, I have sewed a lot, but have not really quilted.

    My best friend has lung cancer and I am attempting to make a prayer shawl quilt for her. She is a very accomplished quilter, but I am sure she will appreciate my attempt.

    I want is to be very soft.....thinking I could use a soft fleese on the back. Would the be ok?

    Hi and welcome from Alaska. Fleece on the back of the prayer shawl will be nice and cozy--good idea.

    Hello, and welcome from Idaho! Your friend will love something you have made for her and fleece will make it soft and warm.

    Hello and welcome from SW Iowa. Glad to have you here. I think fleece would be wonderful on the back.

    Welcome from New York state! Quite a few people use fleece on the back. Often you don't need batting if you use fleece, because it's so warm.

    Hello and welcome from central Alabama. I have used fleece on the back of several quilts and it works nicely.

    Welcome from "on the road", currently the thriving metropolis of Detroit. I'm not sure what type of fabric you used on the top, but if you choose a fleece make sure it doesn't have a lot of give to it. The softer fleece will stretch a lot when you sew it on. Post a picture when it's done, and I'm sure she'll love it. That's nothing more precious when you are dealing with cancer than the thought people put into their prayers and deeds. You don't have to be accomplished to give a gift out of love, and if she is an excellent quilter, she will appreciate it all the more.

    I thought minkie would be good, but I am not able to find it! Hancock is the closest to me (1 1/2 hours) and they don't carry it.
