This one’s going to be a beast! Here are blocks 30 of 36 on my design wall….it’s not tall enough for all 6 rows. This is a ‘Quilt in a Day’ quilt, and it can probably be done, but this one is the ‘Square Queen’ size and will finish at about 88×88 once I add the border and it took me longer than one day! I’m going with a solid black border to pull it all together.
Edited….I looked and looked at the first layout and I liked it, but I don’t think it was what I was really going for. So the kids & I switched it up a bit and added the final row on the floor for the ‘full’ effect. What do you think? I didn’t set up the studio lights so it’s not fantastic, but you see where I’m going with this….
I hate to say this, but I’m second-guessing my choice of backing fabric. Right now I have this 108″ backing:
I’m doubting it for a couple of reasons….one is that a fellow blogger commented about how much it bled when she washed it. Her comment made me think about pre-washing – something I don’t do with quilting fabric. I don’t want to have a pre-washed back and not pre-washed top….I’m kinda stuck.
I also can’t decide if the circles is too busy for a back for this top. There’s a lot going on with the top fabrics and I just don’t know if I should add more craziness to be back.
Fellow blogging peeps, I need help……what do I do about the back?
