    Carol....please let me know what you do.....Iam in the process of making a t/shirt quilt for my D/L and she wants the back to be fleece....so I wont be putting any batting in the middle because the fleece will make it heavy enough....Ive not ever tried quilting on fleece.....so when you do decide to quilt a design I so would appreciate it if you let me know how this works....thx ever so much........Trish

    Carol, I've wanted a peacock bedspread since I saw a chenille one hanging on line at a roadside stand. There are so many wonderful quilting ideas tendered here I don't think I could add any better but when I first looked at your beautiful top I thought "India" and embellishment with metallic or silk-like threads and spangles. It's beautiful.

    In my limited quilting career I have quilted several quilts with fleece and never had a problem. This one I'm planning to spray baste. I just spray basted a baby quilt with just a fleece backing and it worked really well. I think if it's well basted, and your sewing surface is smooth enough, it should be OK.

    I can't presume to advise you on quilting, but I just want to tell you that your quilt is beautiful!

    I agree with the advice above; just echo quilt the peacock and then do cross hatching.
