Making backings is my least favorite thing to do about making quilts. It's not that I mind designing them, it's that working with really big pieces of fabric is more like quilt wrangling than sewing.
So whenever I finish a quilt lately, I want to get the backing done as soon as possible, to get it out of the way. Now that the Twirling Dervish flimsy is finished, I looked through my stash to find some options. Since I rarely buy fabric in chunks larger than a yard, I have to find multiple fabrics that I think can have some fun together.
I had a little over two yards of this multi colored dotted fabric. I added a bit of green to make it long enough, but I needed to add some width. The reddish paisley was OK, but I still needed a bit more. I studied my stash, and then I saw the flying pigs. Since this quilt is going to somebody with a barn and farm animals, the pigs were perfect!
Cross this one off the list.
