Long ago I told you that I'm a simple process person - I truly enjoy just sewing and usually don't care one or the other whether or not a flimsy ever becomes a real quilt. I have piles and piles of completed quilts and probably twice as many quilt tops and I've found that the quilt tops are easier to store. LOL I know, I know some of you are shocked but it is what it is and I make no apologies. :-)
Anyway, I've been thinking about the more recent flimsies and think I'd like to get them ALL to the real quilt stage. LOL
I am now met with a challenge - the backings. Sigh! I usually try to purchase backing that is from the same line of fabric, making sure it's all matchy-matchy but the expense makes me cringe. Another Sigh!
I have a question for you.
Do you get all matchy-matchy with your backings; making sure you're using something from the same line of fabric or do you just simply use something that will look nice?
I have been known to use something that provides an element of surprise - i.e. I used some whimsical cowboys on the back of a quilt made with Civil War type fabric and everyone that looked at the back always smiled. LOL
So, tell me, what do you do?
Enjoy a pieceful day.
