Need backings!!


How many quilt tops do you have finished and ready for quilting?  Do you stash backings and battings?

After time spent quilting gift quilts (here’s a pic of the finished baby quilt before I gave it to the Mom), I really want to quilt that will be one that I can just relax and try to have fun with!








I have about a dozen tops to quilt, and three queen size battings set aside.  But my stash of  backings is in a sorry state.   I have a four yard piece of blue pin dot which I thought would be the backing for my nephews quilt, but it didn’t seem right so I bought something else.  Yesterday, I laid out a quilt done years ago that would be fun to finally quilt but the blue on this pin dot is so bright, like a blueberry, that it just clashed too badly with the front.

I don’t need my backings to match, but they should coordinate!  I have a peach piece of fabric which is perfect for the Just Takes 2 schoolhouse, but I’m not ready to quilt that yet…I’m itching to get at the Just Takes 2 red and white and I would like to that one first (not just because it was the first Just Takes 2 project).  I also have a piece of fabric already sewn together for a backing for the Antique Sampler quilt, and I ended up setting that up for basting, but I’m still not sure that’s the one I want to do right now.

So, I need backings for All Roads Lead to the Sea, which is a priority (a quilt for my husband) and a backing for Just Takes 2 Red & White.  And a few more!
