So I realized this morning as I was adding the leaders to this new quilt to go on the long arm that all of my little "marathon quilting" quilts are ones that I can't show yet. Boo on that. So I can't show you the top, but I can show you the back :) I know, not much, what ya gonna do :)
And I have a question for you, Pieced Backs . . . What do you think about them???
I tend to do a pieced back if I have large leftover pieces or if I just didn't get a large chunk for backing. I will admit, they are not my favorite thing to piece, I am always so anxious to finish the quilt once the top is done and I don't like having to slow down again for a back. I also never really "measure" when it comes to a pieced back, I just lay out pieces and start sewing them together, which always seems to end up with one side of the top being just an inch to short. Hence that added 4" strip on the left :) But with all that said, I sure love the way a pieced back looks when it is all done. They are just so fun and add one more element to the quilt ;)
And now that the back is all done it it time to load it onto the long arm. I was trying to come up with some design ideas, I think I am going to go custom on this one rather than all over and am playing with combining these three designs. What do ya think?? Do they play nice together??
I best get going, I have some laundry and dishes to do before I can start quilting and it is Wacky Wednesday, so I don't anticipate getting far but hopefully I can get a start ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
