How to Build a Better Back

I like to piece the backs of my quilts.I dig around in my pile of 'back' fabrics to find something that kinda matches, usually about the same value. A group of pieces that might be large enough.
I usually choose fabrics that I bought in my past and am no longer interested in putting on the fronts of quilts .(I'll use the two on the left last, they don't seam to go with the rest.)

It is easier for me to build the back, on the wall, right over the front. No small backs for me.

Oops, the bottom piece would look better if it was turned over.

All I need to do is sew the pieces together and I'm ready to baste and quilt it!
