Back nearly done

This is the pieced backing for my quilt (here)

(DH isn't very good at holding up quilts.  He gets arm ache!)

There was a lot of huffing and puffing about the layout and what colour to use as the background, but DH had a rummage through the solids bin and came up with this.  He then swapped strings and stripes round (yes Tonya - he did!) et voila!




It needs to be about 4/5 inches bigger all the way round and then I'm ready to baste and hand quilt - woo hoo!

He's so pleased that he finally hit the mark, he is now looking at the rest with what he calls 'a quilter's eye' (shudder).

Looks good, Clare! I love your letters, and they're HUGE! (That makes the back go together faster, right? hee hee!)

I think this is what I will do with my unused letters- just need to figure out what I want on the back.
