The back of it {Quilting}

Wednesday, 17 October 2012

With this colour scheme, this quilt can only be one thing - yes it is the back of the Totally Groovy QAL! I actually made an effort with the backing for once because it is supposed to be a quilt for the baby's cot and people may actually see the back of it. Otherwise I usually use one fabric I like ... less. 



In addition to the fabrics you have seen used for the QAL (ie the cross), I used the Universe in Academy from Parson Gray (I love all that collection) - currently on sale at M is for Make (just saying). 



So this weekend, we are attacking the quilting bit - yes you know that bit I keep putting back to a later date. It is time to stop procrastinating and actually doing it and finishing this one off!

  8. That's really funny, because I typically do the same thing with the backs of my quilts as well. Have fun quilting it! I'm excited to see it all finished.
