I made a pieced quilt top for a baby and want to put soft fleece on the back. Should I tie or quilt lightly or any suggestions Please?

If you tie it be sure that little fingers can't pull the ties out. You might be able to use a single motif of a machine embroidery stitch to tie the layers together. Another option is to tie it with wool that will felt/full in the wash so that the ties stay put. I'd try experimenting with scraps to see how well they handle if you want to try quilting the layers. If there's batting in addition to the top and fleece back you'll need to have enough stitching/ties to hold the batt together when the quilt is washed too.

Somebody here should have already tried this and have better advice!

When I make baby quilts I love to put fleece on the back. For babies, I usually do the quick pillowcase type turn so I don't have to apply a binding and they are easy to wash. Then I lightly quilt with the machine. Depending on the type of batting and the design used, I even just "fix" each block in the center with a machine stitch, or occasionally I will apply some appliqué with the machine after the quilt has be turned and the appliqué also serves as the quilting..

I've just used a zigzag forward/reverse/forward to "tie" a baby or charity quilt in the past. Since you've gone over the same place 3 times, it's locked in really well.

I'm quilting a fleece backed quilt right now and doing SID, mostly because I'm horrible at FMQ. I've done other fleece backed quilts and also just done SID. I'm doing one with a minkie back soon and will probably do some redwork embroidery on it since apparently SID doesn't look so good on minkie.

When I do these I "tie" them using my machine. Don't want to risk the kids pulling out those strings. I use the embroidered circle stitch - the one that makes one lone circle - in the center of every block or the corners.
