Darlene posted about backs for quilts and asked for other blogger input about what they do for backs. This is a quilt of mine using leftover blocks and not having enough of any one of the fabrics I used in the top I pieced a "leftovers" back. This would have to fall into the WASTE NOT category as I did pay good money for these fabrics. Cindy left me a comment saying "I don't keep scraps - I keep "left over fabric" - because I always find a way to use any piece of fabric." It made perfectly good sense to me!
My little quilts are now quilted, bound (is that right?) washed and dried for a good crinkle and now hanging in my kitchen area. The pattern designer wanted me to toss out the scrap from the top quilt. Well, those were perfectly good LEFTOVERS and I was able to make the 2nd quilt by just adding the additional blue fabric.
I've spent this morning baking for tonight's guild event. We are having Karen McTavish lecture and trunk show! Longarm quilter's are well aware of McTavishing....and perhaps you've seen the quilter with the tattoo!
