We can only use quilting cottons. There are shops that use fleece. We use a dense quilting pattern that makes it impossible to use fleece. Also if the fleece is not a good quality it will “pill”. What is “pilling” ? here is the definition- “Pilling in fabrics is the tendancy of any synthetic spun yarn fabrics. … This creates little balls, of pills, of thread on the surface of the fabric. This is most noticeable when washing or drying lower quality polyester fleece.”

Lightweight flannel also works, makes a soft quilt, and washes well.

Do you like blue fabric? How about geometric designs? Are you drawn to modern fabric?
In the SEARCH bar type in blue geometric modern quilting cottons. It is important to include “quilting cottons” in every search. This weeds out the twill, canvas, etc. Those fabrics are cotton but not quilting cottons.
