Do you need to use a stabilizer on the fleece because it is so stretchy??? Do you have lumps where the seams are on the fleece side of the quilt? I wasn't going to use a batting, thinking that the fleece would be enough, will it? Any help would be appreciated.

I've used fleece as backing before. No batting was used but you could if you want. Also I thought about using a wash away stabilizer but didn't.
My QAYG wasn't done block by block, but rather section by section. I was making a lap quilt so I divided it into 4ths so there'd be fewer seams on the back.
There is a definite bump at the seams but not too bad since I kept the folded over edges narrow. After I straight stitched two of the sections together I then folded all edges (blocks and fleece) to the inside and used a decorative top stitch to hold it.
I hope that makes sense.
