Now that the Framed Block quilt is off the frame I can get my split nine patch quilt ready to load. In order to do that I needed to make my backing.
After all of the drama I had decided to go with the fabric in the upper photo but I still needed to prepare it by sewing the lengths together to get the correct size. While I was preparing to measure the required lengths I laid it down on top of the quilt top to see how I liked it together. The quilt top emphatically said 'no way' and I agree! Turns out that the blue gray in the backing just isn't working for me.
