New Wide Quilt Backing – Fireside

Today we want to tell you about a fairly new-to-the-market product, called Fireside. It is a 100% polyester product, 60 inches wide so suitable for quilt backings. It is similar to Minky, but better.

New technology makes it soft and cuddly
It feels like cotton even though it is not. What makes it different? In the normal manufacturing process of polyester plush fabrics like fleece or Minky, all of the threads are straight,  similar to what your front lawn looks like. Lots and lots of blades of grass standing straight. With Fireside, the threads curl, that curl gives Fireside  a more rounded finish. Your finished project is soft and cuddly.

Easier to Use
For those of you who quilt your projects yourself,  I am told this product is easier to quilt with than Minky. From a Long Arm Quilting stand point, we have quilted numerous quilts using Fireside and they turn out beautiful. Both products weigh about the same so not worry that your quilt will be heavy.
