How To Use Fleece For Quilt Backing

"Recently I made my first ever charity quilts and the charity in question prefers their volunteers to use fleece for the quilt backing so I decided to have a go even though I’d never used fleece before. I used three slightly different methods each time: The first quilt had a fleece backing, no batting and I used a self binding method. The quilting was done with a decorative stitch (no walking foot). The second quilt had a fleece backing, polyester batting and was bound with regular quilting cotton. Simple free motion quilting. The third quilt had a fleece backing, no batting, machine binding with cotton and a more complicated free motion quilting design. I’ll give you my step by step as well as my impressions of all these methods."
