Hi everyone!  I just made this lap/nap quilt top for my daughter with my new serger.  So quick!  The longest part was cutting the strips.  Smiley  My question is, for a simple quilt without batting and not much top-stitching, what do you suggest for a backing?  Flannel?  Fleece?  Etc?  Opinions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!


(The colors are more tropical in real life, not so dark.)

I love the colour combination  Grin

I have only done 1quilt in my life but it was backed with fleece and was super warm and easy to do.

Flannel or fleece would be nice.  It's very pretty!

I have a similar quilt backed with fleece and I've been sleeping with it since I was a child!

I would choose fleece. Both work well, however flannel does shrink so you have to buy extra and pre-shrink it. I am not sure about fleece. Also flannel can get balls. I have flannel sheets from my son and they feel like sand paper now and I have had them about 3 years.
