I haven't but I can tell you that if you use polar fleece for backing expect to have one EXTREMELY warm quilt. I've used it just with about a yard and a half of cotton fabric on the other side and tied it for a car blanket and it was really, really warm--far more so than fleece alone or a regular batting filled quilt.

No, I have never ordered from them, but use polar fleece for blankets for my bed. I have large dogs who sleep with me and have to wash them often. The polar fleece is so warm and cuddly. I made one with flannel on the back side and it is almost too warm for my room. But my grandkids love them.

I think I'm going to try the fleece. I understand the sleeping with dogs. :lol: I have used fleece for blankets for a long time and now that we are "more mature" I like the weight of them.Made a string quilt top this week from scraps that we have had for 20 years or more,and thought fleece would be a good back for it. Thanks for your help.
