    The top is finished... The pattern is called Aussie from the Quiltmania no:60.
    What do you think, shall I put only one layer of fleece on the back?

    Very Pretty top!! Can't say about the fleece, since I have never used it.

    Very pretty. I would use a cotton/poly blend batting and quilt in the ditch around all the individual pieces. It'll make the 3D effect pop out even more. But however you quilt it, it'll still be a wonderful quilt. :D

    The 3-D effect is really cool! You can put fleece if you want it to be really soft and snuggly, or use cotton, it's up to you. Great job!

    Love the quilt, I like the 3-D effect. Can't comment on fleece for backing. I would finish it like a regular quilt with the batting and a nice backing.

    Heel mooie Maksi! (that may be wrong, Hans isn't here to ask! :oops: ) But I mean it's very beautiful! :D

    I don't know about the fleece. Do you mean you want it extra fluffy? If so you could use a wool wadding (batting to the American ladies! :wink: :D )

    Yes, warm, cosy and fluffy. I wonder if I get that with fleece. But maybe is flannel better and a thin batting inbetween?

    Will you be machine quilting or hand? I've never quilted fleece but I HAVE flannel and it quilts beautifully. I use Warm and Natural cotton as wadding for bed quilts. It's, well, warm and natural! But I also find it the most stable of the cotton waddings I've tried. :D I'm currently hand quilting a bed quilt with wool wadding and it's really lovely to quilt - the effect is really fluffy but still light. It wasn't cheap though - I saw it onsale in Holland for 65 euros queensize, so I ordered online from the UK, I think it was around 40 euros. :D But of course it comes in smaller sizes. It was Hobbs.

    What a nice 3D effect! I love this quilt and you've done such a nice job with the design of it too. I think the fleece backing would depend on how you're going to use it. If you are going to use it for a super warm cover I would use fleece but if not I would use something ese. Depends on your climate. The temperatures are too mild for a fleece backing where I live on the coast of NC.

    I think I'll go for fleece on the back. Because in the Netherlands it can be very cold when it is wintertime...and I really don't like that cold climate.
    When spring come I am always very very happy. :D

    Yes I will do the quilting by hand. I will tell you a secret...I find it very difficult to do the quilting on the machine..even with a walking foot I get plies and rinkles allover.. :cry:

    And thanks you all for the nice compliment...it makes me smiling and also a little red.. :D

    I wouldn't put more than one layer of fleece,
    due to the weight it adds, It is beautiful the way it is,
    I really like the 3-D effect. Its absoultely a
    beautiful piece of work! :-)
