In an effort to get some of my quilt tops quilted, I pieced backs for all of them. For all but one, I also have the binding cut.
Yay for me!
In and effort to use up as many scraps as possible, the scraps from two of these quilts will become matching pillows.
All of the backings are pieced using fabric from my scrap pile or stash. I really want to get rid of some of the fabric I’ve had for a while and haven’t used yet. Backings are the perfect way to do that.
This back, which is horribly ugly in my eyes, is for my wonky cross top. I love the Habitat print, but I’m not a fan of the rest. However, they needed to be used and this is a good place to do it.
This is the binding for this quilt. Again, I really like the Habitat line, but it’s been hard to find a place to use it. But it does make a perfect binding for a scrappy quilt.
This is for my Prince Charming herringbone quilt. The green is a shot cotton and the top fabric is also going to be the binding.
This is from Kumari Garden by Dena for Free Spirit. I’ve had this print forever and I kind of wanted to use it for a garment, but it just worked perfectly with the colors of that quilt.
This is the backing for Andrew’s neon shoo-fly quilt. I tried to use up as much of the leftover neon fabric as possible. The gross yellow used to be neon before I washed it. Yes, I’m still upset about that episode. Not only is it no longer neon, but it’s crappy fabric. I’m glad I’m getting rid of it on the back because I was honestly ready to throw it in the trash.
I don’t have binding for this quilt. I think I want to order some more green quilter’s linen that I used on the back of the neon pillows.
Besides the neon dots and the yucky yellow, I used some Denyse Schmidt that I bought in the remnants bin at Joann’s and then some Joel Dewberry? that I had left over.
For this quilt, I had enough left of the gray for both a backing and binding.
This backing is for a quilt you haven’t seen yet. It’s for the KCMQG Mirror Ball Dots challenge. I had plenty of the blue Kona left so I used that up. The yellow and white are leftover Mirror Ball Dots. I also have binding for this out of the Sunshine Mirror Ball Dots.
Whew! Just thinking about quilting all of those kind of overwhelms me. After I finish The Local Quilt and my churn dash quilt, I will be solely focused on quilting…no more piecing.
