Now …. keep in mind that I had a limited amount of fabric with which I could put together a backing.
Too bad I didn't keep that in mind!!!
UH OH!! Maybe I had better start measuring.
I measured and remeasured and called my gals to find out exactly how many inches they needed all around the quilt. And then I remeasured again and kept in mind that if I needed to I could always add an extender strip just to give them the extra inches they need (she suggested this for me. Told me not to worry) So I didn't and just kept merrily cutting and sewing away.
This is the backing all sewn and ready to take back to the girls. Looks plenty big enough wouldn't you say. Would you like to know how much fabric I had left?
2 x 7 inches of dark blue & 2 x 10 inches of light blue!
Off to the quilters.....
