You can't tell how soft it is, but I actually backed it with soft fleece. Yes, it was a stretchy fabric, but it worked perfectly for this quilt. It's so soft. It didn't get out of shape or anything!
In April/May 2016 our guild started a project bag program for charity quilts. Here's how this quilt was made: In May Sue donated a bunch of orphan blocks and quilt pieces to be made into charity quilts. At the July business meeting Sandy picked up one of the charity project bags that just had some flying geese blocks in it. She took it home and assembled this adorable charity crib quilt top. She brought the quilt top back to the August meeting. Kathy picked up the quilt top and put it with a piece of soft fleece fabric for backing donated by JoAnne. It was quilted with the Egyptian Eye pattern. Sandy volunteered to put the binding on this quilt. That's how charity quilts are made.
