I have another question for you...
What do you use for the back of your quilts?
(there should be a space in here, so I'm making one with words...this is how I'm beating blogger!! All the other spaces have the word "SPACE" in them, but I changed the color to white, so you can't see it and it works...yayy spaces between paragraphs)
When I first started quilting years ago, I used fabric that was in one of the blocks of the quilt for the back. I thought it should match. I also used a flannel top sheet for a throw quilt that I made for our family room. That seems to be the family favorite, because of the softness of the flannel (in my head I think they fight over it because of the wonderful design on the front of the quilt and the fabulous quilting, but as I said, that's only in my head.)
The past few years I have changed my thinking on the backing...I buy 100% cotton in white or muslin for the backing now. I feel that if I have to pay $8.00 - $9.00 a yard for fabric, it's going to be on the front!! Maybe because lately I have been making wall hangings, table runners and baby quilts and the backs don't seem that important...especially baby quilts where they are mostly on the floor for the baby to play on.
Just wondering what everyone else thinks about it. I'll be "BACK" to check your answers, because everyone always comes through for me on things like this. You are all the greatest!!
(space...hey it works)
There are no pictures of the backs of my quilts, because that would be extremely boring to look at a piece of plain fabric. So I thought I would show you where my husband (I need to find a catchy name for him like everyone else) and I go for a walk in the spring through the fall. It is off the coast of southern New England. Just beautiful, isn't it?? Click on picture to enlarge.
Hope you all have a great week ahead,
