About the back. I generally by half yards pieces of fabric. Hardly ever a piece big enough for a back. I'd rather have fun six times buying smaller pieces than only once getting that one fabric for the back.
I like the look and because I press all seams open to reduce any possible bulk, my backs lay nice and flat. Now on to the quilting.
|I find that it works best to build a back on the wall. I hang the quilt up, and proceed to pin the largest pieces up.
|Filling in as necessary from my scrap boxes (note the 6" squares and 2 1/2" strip).
