Well thanks to a bit of Kona White from my friend C, this quilt top is finished. My original plan was to back it with minky. I love how it feels and I have seen it used on quilts on blogs I follow but I knew this would be a stretch for my skills(pardon the pun).
I bought some pink minky on sale and once I finished this top (or was almost finished) I started sweating. What if I messed it up? What about batting? What if my quilting goes all wonky?
And then I talked to some fellow quilters who cautioned me that minky is stretchy and a big pain in the butt to quilt. So I admit it. I chickened out.
Instead I pieced a back that looks like this:
|I notice the colours- the red in particular- look off in this picture. Natural light is so much better than 11:00 at night in the hall.|
I'm glad I chickened out!
