Why Helios Quilt Backings Are Special
Helios' quilt backings fit up to a King Size quilt (108" by 120"). That's 10 square yards of fabric for less than $4.50 a yard. And they are made in South Carolina at one of the five working fabric mills in the USA. We use them on every quilt we make for the backing, the binding, and even sometimes the piecing. It's great to have one large piece of fabric that you don't have to sew together for a quilt backing.
If you see a 0 quantity next to the quilt back you are interested in, call us at 319-594-7987 between 10am and 5pm CST and ask if it's in stock. We have a retail store and we often have the back you want on the display even when it's listed out of stock on the website.
Quilt Back Washing Instructions
Because of the sizing that's added to these fabrics, you want to wash them before you use them. Washing the sizing out will make the backings softer and easier to work with. Wash each back separately in cold water with a little softener or detergent added. Dry them half way (they should still be damp) and throw them over a bed to dry the rest of the way or hang them to dry. The lighter colored backs will feel like brushed cotton or flannel after they are washed.
