It was an email from someone asking about my quilts that got me moving on making the backing for my quilt that’s been hanging on my wall longer than any I can remember.
I started the quilt when we began Sheltering-in-place. Now things are beginning to open up again and I’m going to finish it.
It took me a while to find the fabric that would be right for the back. I wasn’t completely certain of them until I saw the quilt hanging in my studio, ready for tacking. I like the mix of hard lines and florals.
I’ll tack it tomorrow with red yarn, I think.

Gorgeous, front and back.
I love using a variety of fabric for quilt backing, it gives it more personality! That quilt is pretty and bold at the same time! Beautiful work Maria!
Sometimes I have a piece of fabric big enough for the backs Josie, when I don’t have one that’s the right color, I make one.
