My least favorite part of making a quilt is getting the backing ready. Not because it is difficult, but it is just such a pain to wrangle so much fabric around.
Treasure Trove quilt, I picked a large print, so that was easy, two WOF pieces sewn together.
Snow Day, I had to shop for the backing. I usually like large prints, but I like the backing to relate to the front, and it was not that easy. The usual things I liked didn't seem to work, but this fabric did. It's low key and yet has the same colors in the quilt, so it was a go. Again, this was two WOF pieces sewn together, but here I made sure to match the pattern so it would look like one piece of fabric.
Fruit Loops quilt, I couldn't find one big print I liked, so I bought equal amounts of three fabrics whose colors were represented in the quilt. Yesterday I ironed them all and set them out on the studio floor. Now I just have to figure out a not stupid way to arrange them. That ought to be interesting. We all know where that got me last time.
Anyway, this will be a good job done. Next up is to write a class description, plan and supply list for the Barns class I will teach at Quilted Threads in June.
