I needed backing for two quilts. Isn't this just going to be perfect? It matches the material Daddio and I used to make the Dresdens way back when. How lucky that Connecting Threads brought it back for another 30's collection just when I need it.
I found this faux batik on ebay for the rings quilt. I didn't want to pay for real batik for a backing. It's pricey.
Here is the quilt kit that was on sale that jumped in my cart AND the backing for it. I used my head this time and bought the recommended backing at the same time as the kit. I usually wait to see if I am going to make the quilt first but this time I AM so I went ahead and got it.
I really miss having a quilt to piece and this is the perfect thing to get me through spring and summer, right? The only thing wrong with this whole deal is that I FORGOT TO ORDER THE BATTING for all the tops I bought the backing for. Now I am waiting for an order of batting so I can get those two tops on the Juki. It's always something.
