Love It When A Plan Comes Together


This is the back of my Nine Patch One Patch quilt. Two width of fabrics were just four inches short of what I needed for the length of my quilt. I didn't want to cut more backing fabric. There is a drawer in my storage system for "quilt blocks". I found the half square triangles and four-patches in there. I didn't have enough of either for all the way across the back, so I used some of each. This added just the width I needed. Amen.

Joan! I love this! I think it adds such a cool element to a backing, an unexpected "There's more!" Great idea!

I like it! BTW, do you have a long arm quilting machine? Just wondering.

I love your back! Glad you were 4" short of backing fabric....no offensive, but these type of backings are more interesting.One of my regular customers always makes such lovely backings, it makes my job all the more fun, and the recipient who gets to snuggle under the quilt!
