Backing It Up

Jane was on a roll over the weekend, moving lots of projects along to the next step in their process. One that I just had to share with you is the backing for her Fruit Salad.

She has had a strip of oversized triangles about 6" wide that echo the triangles in the quilt top ready to go, she just needed to cut her coordinating fabrics and put the backing together, and that's what she did. The top is all hand stitched, as is the triangle strip, but she decided to speed things along a little bit when attaching the two larger pieces and used the machine.

This quilt is so stunning and that strip of triangles is just the icing on the cake. The two pieces of fabric for the backing are very similar in colour, with the dots being a little more teal and the paisley a little greener.

Here's a reminder of some of the yummy fabrics that she worked into it.

She's toying with quilting it using Perle cotton and big stitches, which I think could be lots of fun. Stay tuned....M

Beautiful! I love the fabrics. The pieced back is the perfect detail to pull it all together.

Love it, love it! Hope to have my fruit salad off the frames in a week or so. Will have to photograph these twin quilts together.
