Off to Madera !

woo whoo, I'm off to Madera to day to present my trunk show! Should be a lot of fun!  Got the names of some good Quilting stores to visit along the way. Yippee!

Also I was visiting  google + the other day and Elita was asking about using fleece as a backing.  If you have a long arm (it's to slippery to quilt on a short arm without a frame) I think fleece or plush backing is a great way to go.  It's soft and hug able and you don't have to use batting.  I actually prefer plush throws 'cause they are even more squishy and the quilting looks great on the back.  I buy them on sale at places like Ross, it's even cheaper than yardage and you can buy a size that fits. Here are some pix.

this is plush
this is minky
