One 11.75″ by 19″ home decor weight fabric for the outer fabric
In the example shown, home decor weight fabric was used and it was decided not to use any sort of fusible interfacing. If you decide to choose quilting weight cotton, then it is recommended you use a lightweight fusible interfacing to the wrong side of your outer fabrics. As an extra tip, it is a very good idea to use a heavy duty denim or jeans needle, as you will be sewing together multiple thick layers. It also may be advisable to use your walking foot if you have one.
You could also decide to use a fusible fleece on the reverse side of your fabrics in place of the stiff interfacing if you prefer.
