What materials did you use? Canning Day cotton fabric & white background

What are you most proud of? I really wanted to try a pieced back and although I chose the simplest way to do it, I'm glad I didn't take the easy way out and just use a 'regular' backing. This was my first pantograph quilting quilt which I quilted on my home frame.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even though it may seem easier to 'wing it' with the backing, I found it beneficial to follow Elizabeth's instructions, make a plan using graph paper and work out the actual dimensions of the back & piecing needed.

Oh I REALLY like it! I guess I too am going to have to give it a try. (I just am SO excited to get my quilt top to the 'sandwiching' stage - that I don't want to 'take the time' to piece a backing too :-) :-) - One thing that I think I (emphasias I) would do is add a 'border' to the top and bottom of the strip, as you did on the front, so they would 'match' - Just a thought. Again - GREAT work!

I really like this. It's a great little surprise on the back and really compliments the quilt!
