Last year, there was a fun series of blog posts about quilt backs by Kate at Swing Bike Quilt. Many of my quilting friends have posted wonderful photos of their quilt backs. Since I was late to the game, I missed out posting about quilt backs, although I did take the opportunity to link a few of my photos to the group pool.
But it did get me thinking about the why of my quilt backs, which have run the gambit from simple to complex and nearly everything in between. I try to be purposeful when piecing the backs; trying to use more of what I have without adding to my already healthy (that's a pseudonym for obscene) fabric stash all the while desperately trying to keep the overflowing scraps in ONE drawer in my tiny sewing room. I hope to make a real dent in what I have on hand. Perhaps I'll be the ONLY person to notice, but I'm already feeling good about it.
