Choosing the Fabric Back of My Quilt

This is the backing for MY Quilt. It's been a very long process, but the backing is off to the washer and I'm off to find all the pieces to my quilt stand ? I went to the quilt shop planning on purchasing white for the back, but I love paisley and then pink too... Need say no more.

Quilt Wall - Red, White and Blue Little Quilt

Pin It

Red, White and Blue Little Quilt
Long ago, (so long ago), I did this quilt. When my father was very sick and after he lost his battle, this is the quilt that I worked on. I quilted and quilted it. I filled so many hours. I remember having so much to do and not being able to do anything but sit and quilt on this little wall quilt.Red, White and Blue Little Quilt
It was some months later and I put it in an area quilt show and over heard someone said, "You'd have to be nuts to quilt like that." You know I was, but in it's way this quilt brought me back.
Red, White and Blue Little Quilt

Stitches and more hand stitches.
Red, White and Blue Little Quilt
Years ago, (12 years) this magazine was very popular, and this little quilt of mine was on the cover, a very large honor, for me and dad's quilt. Both hang very proudly in my sewing room, this little quilt of mine.
