Wops! Thank goodness for alert readers!

So after the last post, some of you immediately mentioned I've been neglecting the backing fabrics of my quilts. And this fabric is very special, it's the first time I've used it, it's new Ikea and for me, it's the definition of summer-y days! We have lady bugs, strawberries, carrots and all sorts of great fresh items!

However, since the fabric wasn't wide enough, I added another Ikea fabric for the borders, and I think it worked great! I love those little banners.

  1. I love backing fabric that's made up of more than one fabric! I've got a few I'm working on right now that have that - one's stripes of different fleeces, and the other will be a pattern of large squares of different fabrics. I buy a lot of end-of-bolt pieces, and it forces me to be creative to come up with solutions for the backs sometimes! :)

  2. Plus it makes it much more unique! :D
