After all my crock about how this quilt had to have a subdued backing, I shopped several online fabric sites and found absolutely NOTHING that (in my hairdresser's words) "lifted my skirt."
Until I found this Kaffe print. A version of this in a different colorway is in the quilt itself, but this fabric just screamed "ME! Pick ME!"
So I did. Of course it isn't quite this gigantic, but eight yards are on their way to me even as you read this.
And at this stage of the game, the binding might be a blue or a green or a teal. That will change, undoubtedly, when I get the quilt back from Chris. And since I put my nephew's name on the back of his quilt, my niece's name will have to go on the back of hers. Guess what I'll be doing this weekend?
