Next in line to be quilted is my Scrappy Baskets quilt. Yesterday I added an 8 inch border bringing it to a total of 108.50 inches.
Today I cut it down to a 5" border because the quilt was too big for my frame! Yep I'm a whiz at math!
The backing will be my "I can't cut it fabric". I've been holding onto about 12 yds of uncut pretty floral for quite awhile. As much as I hate to, it's just gotta be done.
This was one of those items from the estate sale. I think the old lady had the same issue as me, just couldn't cut into it! Now in a perfect world I'd run out and buy and extra wide plain white backing, but... use what you have and get rid of the stash is the plan.
So pretty....I guess once it's quilted I could just turn it backing side up so I can look at it all the time!
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"
