Raise your hand if you hate basting a quilt? ✋🏼✋🏼✋🏼✋🏼✋🏼
The work of basting is hard enough, but getting the backing pieced and measured properly can be a pain too. My favorite thing to use is wide quilt backing fabric made just for this purpose…… soooooo much simpler! But here lies a problem….UGLY BACKING!
Now I’m not saying all quilt backing is ugly… obviously, but most that I come across are pretty old school.
Vines, flowers…vines, flowers and blobs….
(no offense meant to the vine, flower and blob lovers)
If your like me then you’re kinda tired of that and looking for something new, funky, fresh…SASSY!
So I set out on a search…
I went a little crazy on my shopping spree after my last basting/backing attempt… and I want to share with my quilty friends in case you are looking for something similar.
Here is some up close pics of goodies I found at Fabric.com.
