I made a huge amount of progress last night and finished two backs for two of my quilts. Do you every think your backs could be quilts on their own and its sad that folks don’t get to see them as much.
I feel that way about both of these finishes. First up, the back of the “Neighbourhood” quilt is complete. It was made with the Oakshott cottons scraps from the front and Dottie, Cotton and Steel. Each of the blocks in the middle are 5″x 7″, so they are small.
I think it complements the front well.
The second back, is for Bjorn the Bear. It uses another of Juliet’s (from Tartankiwi) patterns, an Angled Bear Paw Print. I loved the Feather River Bear print and so totally want to use it on the back, and thought it would look great with the bear print in an off white and rust colored solids.
I love it!! Here’s a reminder of the front. The pattern for this 30×30″ bear is now in Juliet’s Craftsy store.
Both of these are on my must finish list this month, but again I will elect the Neighbourhood quilt as my A Lovely Year of Finishes for this month.
Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Friday, and linking up for ALOYF (see button on the right).
