is this the worst idea I've ever had?  I have star wars polar fleece.  Smiley  so it's like average-weight.  I'm trying to figure out how to make sure the seams lie flat when I go to layer it, but I'm only going to use a backing and no batting.
once I made a quilt out pf pieces of brand new towels from the disney store...and I sort of had a similar problem, and then I just gave up and quilted it however.  but I was 12, then, and I'm a neurotic perfectionist now.

What if you just...put the pieces edge to edge and did a tight zig-zag on them??  I've seen this done with felted sweater quilts....anyone know what I'm talking about?

Otherwise, polar fleece doesn't really fray, so you could just do a tiny seam allowance, and I would imagine it would be fine.

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

yeah, I know what you mean about the zig-zag...I'm just worried it'll look messy :/

I don't think it will if you use a thicker, even contrasting thread, and as long and as wide a zig zag as possible. You could even go over it again offsetting it, so that it looks like cross stitching.
