Binding the Pups
Ok...now this might be a bit much eh? It's because my day to share isn't until October 6 so I can't show my progress.
Really, though...this is a good shot of the back, the fabric I chose to back my quilt with really hides the white Aurifil quilting...the texture is there though. I keep petting it as I bind!! :)
A little more info on the backing...it is a *gasp* sheet from Target. I saw a post from Amanda that prodded me to give it a try and so far, I like it. It quilted up beautifully and is incredibly soft.
I will admit to being a long tailed cat in a room of rocking chairs nervous about washing (it's a 60/40 blend) it but I will report back once that is done. I have heard lots of pros and cons on using sheets for backs but have never personally tried it. Can't beat the price, it was on sale and if I use both the fitted and flat sheet, that's 11 dollars a back. Had to squeeze this one to make it fit though as the quilt is 88" x 66" and it is a flat twin sheet.
Am I crazy...or am I about to finish some of the many tops to donate that I have hanging around because I couldn't afford backing fabric?? Or both...
