I've just tried sending a comment but it failed. Hope you don't get this twice! Lacy Blues, have you thought of using 'fleece' for the backing. We quite often use this for snugly quilts. You may call it something else. Zip up jackets are made from it. We can buy it very cheaply from our local shop that's a bit like the old Woolworths which we don't have anymore. It comes in many colours and some patterns. It's made from recycled plastic cups and I think it is all made in the USA. It's brilliant for backing lap quilts or children's quilts, lightweight and easy to wash. Is this of help?
