Backing Prepping

I didn't have a lot of energy or brain power to do much sewing but I had to do SOMETHING! So, I made backings this weekend. 
I don't have many large fabric  pieces and if you've seen many of my quilts you'll know most of my backs are pieced with a variety of fabric. 

I'm planning on Baptist fans for this quilt. 
 Backing for 9 patch/ snowball
Fan quilting on this one too.

Not too exciting for a Monday post and for some reason I couldn't get the photos to load the proper direction.

Have a wonderful Monday!

  3. I like pieced backings on a quilt. Fun to include some pieced blocks in them too but seems like it takes more fabric to work around the pieced blocks.

  5. You've been busy so I hope that means you're feeling better! I hope one of these days to make a snowball quilt. Baptist fans are one of my favorite quilting designs.

  6. Are you feeling better? I hope so!
    Love the pieced backings. Seems appropriate to me--it makes sense for "humble quilts" to have "make do" backings!

  10. I love pieced backings and I think it's fun to see yours! I find that if I rotate my photos and rotate them back to the direction they are supposed to be before I load them to blogger, that it keeps them upright. Maybe try that and see if it helps. It's an extra step but it's the best I've got. :)

  11. I also love pieced backs, but I don't make them all that often. You've inspired me to do more!

  13. I recognize quite a few of those pieces you've sewn into backings. It feels good to move a few pieces out of the piles.

  14. Lori, I hope you're feeling better! Getting backings done for large quilts is no small feat!!
    I'll be up in Sunriver next Tuesday so hopefully we can get together during the 2 weeks I"ll be there!

  15. I much prefer a pieced back even if it's very simple! Your fabric selection is perfect. I usually end up with some crazy pieces.:)

  16. Wow Lori, you've been so busy! I love pieced backs too, but I hand quilt so I have to think about how many needles I'm going to break if I have too many bulky seams! Some wonderful tops there, but I especially like 'jewel box' and the backing fabrics you've chosen suit it perfectly :)
