I'm finally up to date on piecing my quilt top backings, all eleven of them!!
Yes Eleven. I have no idea how I got so far behind, but that's never going to happen again.
If I have my backing fabric when I finish a top, I'll usually piece the back then, I need to do a better job of thinking about the backing as I'm piecing my top, get it ordered and get it done. Several of you mentioned 108" wide backings. The last time I used wide backing fabric I didn't like the feel of the fabric, but that was ages ago, maybe they've improved, I"ll give it another go.
While piecing all those backs I was thinking about my Village project. I've decided to use scraps to build my Village.
I studied the pattern and have placed a post-it note with the cutting requirements on my cutting table. When I'm working on a project I'll try to cut a few pieces as I go, and maybe piece a few houses too.
Here's my start!
Now that I don't have those backings hanging over my head I'm ready to start a new project, guilt free!
