I've seen people use fabric without backing.  They seem to have no problems
with the PVA bleading through (which was my first thought when they told me
what they were intending to do).  They glue up the board, lay the cloth
down and...that's it.  Scares me to no end.  I know that if I decide to try
it I'll pick the one or two clothes that **will** blead through.  :)

So I guess my comment is really, do you need to back the cloth at all?
