    I used the fabric that I would normally use. The fleece which was a non-pill from Hancocks was a heavier fleece and did not bat. The non-pill fleece from Joann's was much lighter in weight so I did a flannel for a bat here. Just make long stitches and clean out that bobbin area, builds up fast.I attached the binding to the front and pulled it to the back. I always do my bindings with a decorative stitch. I just like it that way and very forgiving.

    This was the back of the heavier fleece quilt

    Cool! Your quilting is very nice, too. I made 4 pinwheel and 9 patch quilts for my grand babies with a fleece back and no batt. I made an extra wide border and wrapped the extra to the back...it worked.

    I've backed several small quilts with fleece and tied them all. Sometimes I used a batting, and sometimes I didn't.
