Pieced Backing

As I never really plan my quilts, it's seldom that I have enough fabric in my stash for the backing. 
Usually I order a matching fabric. For my Liberty Four Patch top I had found in my stash an old floral fabric from Lucien, but so disappointed that it was only one yard. As I thought it was perfectly matching, I decided to use it and to complete with leftover squares from the top and to add a piece of lilac fabric. I must say that I enjoyed doing this for the first time. I am very pleased with the result and happy for the saving money on another fabric order! 

My lilac starts flowering and my quilting mood is lilac tone!

  3. Tu as raison ! Il n'y a rien de plus joli qu'un tissu de dos formé de plusieurs autres tissus !! Et là, grâce à tes choix, nous sommes en plein Printemps !!
    Bravo Christine !!
    Bonne fin d'après-midi et grosses bises

  12. J'aime faire des quilts recto-verso et j'aime beaucoup ta composition. Tu vas y prendre goût! Il me reste aussi quelques morceaux du tissu avec les fraises. Il a plus de vingt ans! La neige il y a deux semaines et maintenant le lilas, c'est extraordinaire. Tu m'envoies un peu de parfum des lilas, s'il te plaît :-) Belle journée

  19. I love pieced backings--and since many quilts need them anyway due to size, you might as well make it fun. Yours is lovely!
