Soft, light and cuddly, polar fleece is a modern alternative to traditional wadding (batting) in quilts. Using a fleece backing means you can kill two birds with one stone as it takes the place of both backing and wadding, making it quick to layer up and lighter to handle when quilting. It also makes for a really cosy quilt! 

Our polar fleece comes in a range of pastel and vibrant colours and is 60” (150 cm) width of fabric (WOF).

(Please note that fleece is 100% synthetic, so it will not shrink as much as cotton fabrics when washed. You may want to prewash cotton fabrics to preshrink them if you plan to back with fleece and don’t like the wrinkled, antique feel that comes from shrinkage in washing.)
