I finished the sashing this evening and have decided to leave that narrow black border — just enough to bind and call this a top. Now to cut the binding and see what I have that will make a good backing.


4-Patch Stripy Quilt Top is Done April 6, 2010

Last night I finished the borders on the quilt top. I even rummaged through my boxes of yardage to find a backing. This is what I came up with:

Not necessarily my first choice, but it will be fine and the price is right — out of my stash! This is a 1997 Daisy Kingdom print called “Scottie Plaid”. Several years ago this piece moved from my Mom’s stash into mine. I suspect I was supposed to make a dress for my niece. At nearly 13, I don’t think she’ll mind that she’s not getting a pink, black, green and gray plaid dress.

Tonight I’ll work on piecing the backing and sandwiching the quilt. I think I want to quilt it using pink thread, so I’ll need to get it as well as the pink Fairy Frost I want to use for the binding.
