Back Quilting

The Wonky Nines needed backing.  As you know I am not a "solid back" kind of guy.  So I did some back piecing yesterday.  I use some of my orphan blocks and test blocks this way.
Now, to  layer that third of the quilt and get it quilted - that is what I need to do. (well, maybe iron this first ha ha.)  Then there are two more sections. I could be at this for a while!

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.

That is a lot of piecing for the back. You almost had a whole separate quilt.

I love piecing on the back of a quilt and it is a great way to use up some of the stash!

I don't typically focus on backings unless it is an important gift. Otherwise, orphan blocks and any fabric at all is a great choice in my book. I do stop myself if the back is actually too ugly in my book...but that's not usual...LOL

I like to call it "Back Art". :)

I have a fall quilt that has a back that is, to me, as good as the front, so it doesn't matter which side is showing! I only like plain backs if I am having some spectacular, custom, long-arm quilting done and want that to be showcased nicely on the back.
