Fleece Backed Comfort Quilt

Fleece Backed Comfort Quilt
Because it is so very soft, I decided to try fleece as a quilt backing.  I had finished piecing a Christmas Comfort Quilt; now I was ready to quilt the layers together.  The more I fiddled with the fleece, the more I decided to try using it first on a piece of cheater fabric that I originally purchased to use as a quilt back.  Good choice!  I hated working with the fleece.  I got a LOT of loops on the back and thread breakage.  Making this quilt tidy was a big chore.

If you use fleece as a backing, what is the secret to avoid the problems I encountered?  Not sure I want to try this again.

I think part of it may be taking it slowly and not using a batting. Did you use a batting with it? My friends have great luck with it..and while I've got the fleece and intend to do this...it's just one of those things I've never gotten around to!
