I hate making quilt backs. I also spend too much time over thinking the quilting. I know from discussions that I’m not alone at this stage of quilt making.
So instead I’ve been piling up quilt tops. I haven’t quilted a quilt since, oh, November;( lame.
So I’ve started making my fabric piles, AND I will…make…quilt backs.
I know many quilters that now shy away from prints, but I have a soft spot for prints and backs are a perfect place to use up those that made me love fabric and quilting.
I think this quilt has been together minus a border for a year and a half.
This is what I purchased, but I’m not so sure I’m sold. The handle on these Kaffe fabrics is really nice if you are looking for a soft quilt back.
Snowballed Sunshine is my new color way obsession.
It’s getting scraps and some larger cuts in the same sunshine happy tones.
My Sochi Hex just needs some length and maybe some added width.
Fabrics from the front and a few of the same prints in an alternate color way will merge for its back.
My newest Double-Trouble quilt is the one I’m itching to quilt the most. The picture makes it look so dull, but it’s bright and vibrant.
I knew I wanted the 60s type flower print to be showcased on the back and I’ll take it from there with the others.
Now we’ll just have to see how long those piles sit?
I do enjoy choosing binding, so maybe that will be my incentive.
