Craftsy 2012 BOM Quilt Back

Project Description

What was your inspiration? When I added some borders on the front of the quilt I didn't think about how much backing I had. I ended up about 20" short. So I thought about the keyboard border I'd added to the front and had plenty of fabric left to play with. I really didn't want the back to like like I ran out of fabric so did the keyboard borders on the inside rather than the edges. It worked great I think.

Q&A with wintermagic

Granbren asked:
Very pretty quilt. I'm doing this quilt also but am doing a quilt as you go technique. I just stared it this month and am learning to quilt on my home machine so I'll take my time. Yours inspires me. Thank you for sharing.

Very nice How are you going to quilt it.
wintermagic answered:
I took the Free Motion Quilting a Sampler class. Just finished all the blocks and will start on the borders today. :)
Sanuye_Zonta asked:
LOVE the design as well as the backing! I will be doing a king-sized quilt for a friend's son and his wife and will be learning the 3-layer 'row by row' QUILT AS YOU GO technique since I do not have a large machine and want to free-motion it. I've done tying and free motion and LOVE the way the free motion keeps the layers so secure. Eventually I want to learn to sew patterns into the quilt as the securing feature of the layers.
wintermagic answered:
Thank you! The next quilt I do will be quilt as you go. I free motioned this one on my little sewing machine and it was really a pain getting to the center. :)
