One thing I love about making my own quilts is that I can put just as much character into the back as the front. Now, that’s not to say that I do it on every quilt, but I felt like the Communique Quilt deserved a fun backing. After all, with all the detail on the front, the back would be pretty boring without some piecing.
For the backing I used left over fabric that I had pulled for the quilt.
Yes, apparently I have WAY too much fabric, since I had enough to make this king-size top, the pieced back and still have left overs from this color palette.
I’d tell you that I need an intervention, but I like my fabrics too much. Plus, I did get quite a few of the fabrics donated to me by friends and family. They know how much I like my scraps. What about you? Do you use scraps to quilt?
