Backing Plans

Planning the backing of a quilt is often rather confusing. Partly because I hate to buy six yards of new fabric, and I dislike a pieced backing that doesn't really "work" with the front. But I've worked it out. This exercise with bits of graph paper and tape told me exactly how much fabric I needed, and exactly how to cut it.

Fortunately, it makes sense to me!

Happily it does make sense! Have at it! I thought I was the only one piecing backs and planning ahead!! Gail Norback
