This is my first quilt, so please gently ignore any crooked seams or things you would have done differently. This was the brightest room in the house today, so would you please also excuse the presentation on the doors of my fabric stash cabinet!?!? I couldn't bear to put it on the floor just yet for a full photo shoot. How silly is that? Here's the front:
And the back:Robert Kaufman blog. She shared some wonderful photos of her quilt backs and opened the discussion to ask how people like to prepare their backs. Since this is a lap quilt which will live on my couch and get lots of use, I didn't want the back to be scrappy or seem unplanned. The math was easy to figure out with one large leftover bit and a frame of white. The wide binding was a way to fix an error that happened during quilting. Ooops - the cat is out of the bag now!
Not bad for a first try! I'd like to do a coordinating pillow cover for a throw pillow, and then my next project is a narrow quilt to fit on the backseat of my car for Katie's travels. Let's be honest, its to protect the backseat upholstery from muddy, leafy, dirty, detritis-filled paws!
