Huge Backing for Log Cabin

Image may contain: indoor

I have the backing right side up with the quilt top sitting on top of it. Even though I checked my calculations many times, I wanted to make sure the backing was large enough to accommodate the quilt top. I have some nice extra fabric all around the top. Just how I like it!

No automatic alt text available.

My neighbor has yards and yards of this green fabric which she wanted for the backing. I started by cutting one piece approximately 102 inches long. She had a 4 yard cut which made it easy to get this length with no seams.

However, all her other pieces were closer to 2 yards. I decided to add to those 2 yard pieces. I kept the large piece in the middle. I sewed the pieced 102 inch pieces to the top and bottom of the piece in the first picture. It's hard to see. This backing is so large that I have no place in my house to lay it out nicely. Hope I can get it on the longarm okay. I have some batting all ready to go. I usually pop it in the dryer to get rid of some of the creases. I'll be loading it on the longarm tomorrow.

Molly seems to agree with my choices so far. She found a nice place for herself! Cats always find a comfy little corner! Have a wonderful weekend!
