    I got a lot of help and advice on my fleece back as I had never done one before....thanks ALL....I thought I would share a couple of photos with you of my quilt.

    Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest, but the back turned out GREAT, thanks to all of your help and advice.

    I truly appreciated it all...and I will quilt more with fleece now that I found out just how easy it was.

    Thanks again, hope you enjoy the pictures.

    1st Picture is the top...not to of a clear picture but you get the just.

    2nd picture and 3rd pictures are of the quilting and the fleece back.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks, I enjoyed making this one so much! I am so happy with the results.

    The colors are so retro!!! Had I had it done the day before yesterday, I could have entered it in the fair.

    Maybe next year...LOL.

    I have a lot of fleece that I rescued from a train wreck, long story. I should use it for quilt backs because I am not using it for anything else!

    Your quilt is beautiful, btw!

    Love it...I have a question, did you use any batting, or just top and fleece?

    Yes, I used batting, and I love the outcome of it. I tried a sample quilt first and it worked great. My friend that I am sending this to is in a nursing home and the AC is on all the time and she is cold...so this made it heavier and it turned out great. I used the longarma and an all over pattern to quilt it.

    What a wonderful idea to put fleece on the back of a quilt! How cuddly it will be! Nice job!

    That looks great. I would like to try a quilt using the fleece as backing. Did you use batting in the middle or just add the top right to the fleece?

    I love the graphic nature of the quilt top. Fleece is so cuddly as a backing

    Your friend sure will be warm and cozy now! I love the pattern and fabrics you selected. I never thought about using fleece for backing but it surely will provide great warmth and your quilting is very impressive. Thanks for sharing!

    If you ever want to make a warm comforter (I'm always cold so made one for myself) make your top, then use a high loft batting and use fleece on the back. I don't suggest quilting but tying instead, it keeps it poofy. and for a true comforter like look, use the birthing/pillowcase/envelope method. If you don't know how to do that, I put a tut up. But it looks great and will definitely be warm!
