I am working on a quilt for my BFF. She lives in Austin and since I moved to Houston I actually live close enough to visit her. Her Birthday is the 7th of July and I am driving up to spend a few days and celebrate with her! I am so excited it has been too long since we got to spend time together. We are going to have a wonderful time doing girly things…SPA DAY with massages, manicures, pedicures, and facials.
Here is a preview of what I am working on. I am making 1 for her and 1 for me (just alike)…
I purchased a sheet in the color of the dark taupe (it was as close as I could find without spending $50 backing the thing). I also decided to go that way because I am making 2. Hubby would have a heart attack if I asked for $100 to back the quilts al lat once :)
I think I am going to go to the LQS to and get the binding. I was thinking one of the reds…What do you think?
I had a very difficult time laying this quilt out. it took me about 4 hours arranging and rearranging. Finally I got to this point which I found somewhat pleasing.
QUESTION: Tell me what you use to back your quilts.
