I didn't plan on getting fancy with the sashing to my snowflake quilt top but I did. I didn't have enough of any one piece of material to do the job so I ended up following the pattern. It was like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. I proceeded with caution and measured out one cut at a time to avoid any drama.
There was some drama with all those little cornerstones but it all worked out. I couldn't be happier. I love it.
This is what I had left in the box of leftover blue material I was using and none of it would work for a backing so I spent an afternoon looking at pages of blue material that I hope will work. Why I can't ever remember to buy enough yardage for the backing while the collection is still in production I will never know. This is an all too familiar dilemma that I always seem to be getting myself into.
The quilt top is beautiful and what a good excuse to go online shopping for just the right piece of fabric for the backing.ReplyDelete
Oh, that turned out so pretty. I know it was a lot of work, but those cornerstones really make a difference. I hope you found some good backing fabric.ReplyDelete
Love that quilt - so pretty!!ReplyDelete
You could make a pieced backing with what you have. It can be big patches and a random pattern. I’ve done it many times.ReplyDelete

I never think of the backing at the beginning either! The quilt top turned out beautifully-intricate and amazing!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful quilt! Hope you find the perfect backing although I kind of like the blue polka-dot piece.ReplyDelete
Wow! that turned out great! Maybe you like to see how the top looks before you pick the backing! It will be fabulous!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a lovely use of pattern, color and print! I think you're smart to search for backing fabric - that really is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Check on Etsy for the fabric line. I did that recently and found yardage from an old fabric line. It’s worth a try.ReplyDelete
Nothing but admiration here Deb. I can't sew at all. BE nice to you!!!ReplyDelete
