I joined Jenny Haynes again for a Finish that Quilt workshop at VH last Friday and had a lovely evening of chatter and some good progress on my quilt. To make things more interesting I decided to create an improvised quilt backing using all the left-over sections of fabric to save having to buy more new fabric. I think it has made a really interesting quilt backing and I am looking forward to seeing how it is going to look when I eventually get around to quilting the whole thing.

Lastly, lay the quilt top over the whole thing making sure it is lined up with the quilt backing. Ideally, the quilt backing should be an inch larger all the way around the quilt as well as the quilting wadding. You can see the white wadding sticking out all around my quilt-top.
|Keep on pinning!|
