Backings


The other day I wanted to put one of my craft show quilts on the frame and discovered that I had no backings ready so decided that is my next task. I pulled fabrics yesterday to make backings for a red/white and blue quilt and a Christmas quilt that I have tops made. I also checked in my box of 10 1/2 squares and had enough already cut to make a backing for the pinwheel quilt. I put all the squares on the design wall and am slowing getting them sewn together between customer quilts and work around the house.

Busy weekend coming up with end of the year school project to help with, dance costumes to alter and sew things on and trying to get some painting and de-cluttering down around here.

Doesn't sound like much sewing time so with working on the backings a little at a time I will still accomplish something.

I love backings like this. I also like to stagger the seams with a 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" block..
