Backings and Quilt Tops
I haven't done much sewing or quilting lately so I decided some retail therapy would be helpful. I bought this backing last week at my local quilt shop. It's from the Little House on the Prairie fabric line. I think it's just perfect for my Patchwork Swoon quilt.
This is the Patchwork Swoon quilt. I like that the backing is a soft blue with little flowers running through it. I think just about any fabric would have worked but this fabric seemed the best choice to me.
I bought this beautiful Kaffe Fassett backing for my Kaffe Mystery Quilt. This backing is so pretty! I couldn't pass it by!
This the mystery quilt that my guild sponsored this past year. It's made up of all Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
