Design Wall Monday - 5/31/10

Wow the end of another month, how the time flies.

I hope everyone will have a great Memorial Day with family and friends but also stop and give thanks to all the people that served and gave their lives so the rest of us can enjoy days like this.

Last night I decided to work on another backing. This one is for the second Patriotic Flurries quilt that I made. I didn't have enough of any one fabric so pieced it. I was going to do my usual 10 1/2 squares but decided to go quicker so just cut these 10 1/2 by 20 1/2. Made a quick and easy backing and better yet used up stash.

I just recently started using my stash to piece the backs and I really like the extra touch it adds to the quilt.

Thanks for showing this. It gives me some ideas. I'm getting bored with just using 108" fabrics for backs.

Great idea for a backing. I really like pieced backs as they make for a more interesting quilt.

I must begin to piece backs, I inherited my mother's stash and need to use up more than I can just by doing tops!
