25.9 A little more progress on the back of this quiltJune 9, 2012
Here’s a progression of the BACK of my exothermic wonders quilt. Done in picture form (mainly)
It started with ‘these blocks’ I made at the retreat in feb.
And then I made some of ‘these blocks’. (A consideration for the alternate blocks I had made last winter).
And I put them together in the center.
And then I found some more pieces and cut them up for some first borders.
And then put away for a while. Got back out, made several more borders without pictures. Mainly out of pieces from this quilt top.
Above pieced borders were done but not attached until tuesday (of this week) morning.
Now I am out of the black fabric used in this quilt, so anything beyond has to be from the overbuying fabric for the top of this quilt.
One more set of borders (already cut a while ago), but not quite the right size for the back of the quilt yet.
At this point this would be a nice top in itself, but I am shy of being 4 inches larger on each side for the top of my exothermic quilt. So I’ll add more borders still. I want these last borders to be larger and less pieced in case anything gets chopped off it’s just the borders that don’t have any personality.
And here’s a picture of the top that this quilt backing goes with.
Excited to be using pieces of my stash to get this thing made.
And no I don’t believe that all quilt backs HAVE to match the quilt tops, but THIS ONE does.
