Creative Quilt Backs »
Type of item: Functional
Canning Day cotton fabric & white background
What was your inspiration?
Elizabeth & my quilt front. I simply added a strip of the disappearing 9-patch blocks to the back of the quilt using (in an approximate way!) Elizabeth's math. I love how it turned out!
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.
