thin backing fabric question
My sister has some fabrics she wants me to use as the backing for a lap quilt. I don't always prewash but I did this hoping it would help, but it didn't!
Thin fabric wears faster and I have heard of people using a thinner piece of fabric underneath or doubling the fabric.
But, does this really help the fabrics from wearing faster?? I have search the Net and have found sites doing this for applique but nothing for backings.
The quilt will be quilted in 1" cross hatching so I have no problem with it shifting , just don't want to use it it if it will wear too fast.
