I LOVE a Pieced Back!

Here's a back I finished this morning... it's off to the quilter this afternoon.  As this is the 4th of 5 quilts I am finishing up for a friend, I used some extra blocks and fabric that were stuffed into this bag of semi-finished quilt tops. 

I love the old red gingham with the little flowers.  I have to admit it was out of necessity that I went with the pieced back, not quite enough of this little white flower fabric for an entire back.   One of the things I love about quilting it that you can always improvise!

This will be the back for the 2nd scrappy Sailboat Quilt shown here on my ironing board.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Yeah for pieced backs and using what we already have in our stash!

  2. Great! I'm with you I like pieced backs too.
