Fleece as Quilt Backing (3 Methods)

I made my first ever charity quilts! The charity 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 different methods for using fleece for my quilt backs.

Method 1: No Batting, Self-Binding

The first quilt I attempted with a fleece back was this one with the wine and pink coloured blocks.

I used a spray baste for this. I placed a single piece of fleece right side down on the floor and centred the quilt top on the top right side up.

Method 2: Fleece Quilt Back with Batting & Cotton Binding

The two blocks I started with for this quilt had some turtles and zebras as the central motif.

I think this quilt is much cuddly and cozier with the extra layer of the batting. I also think it makes the quilting look nicer.

Method 3: Fleece Quilt Back, Cotton Binding, No Batting

The top started off with just one of the hexi blocks – this one with multicoloured butterflies at the centre.

I then added multiple borders in bright colours to match the butterflies and make the quilt that baby size.
