Quilt, part 2
Fabric shopping is addictive. Did I buy more than I was shopping for? You just know I did.
Since the quilt top I pieced was sewn using old scraps from other projects, there was no way to find anything to use for a backing that would match perfectly. If I'd planned this quilt from the beginning, I'd have selected one of the pieces of the top to use for the backing.
I did find this adorable flannel with little Olivia prancing about, and since the top has some black and white pieces scattered throughout, I thought it might work well. The green fabric above will be used for the binding. This Olivia flannel is very black....the lighting was very bright.
One thing is clear; even though my husband has seen me make many quilts over the years, he has no knowledge about the differences between the terms, backing, binding, border, or basting.....imagine that!
