    backing fabric

    What fabric was used as backing? Do you have any recommendations as to light vs. dark? thanks!

    Here is my back. A gray wide goods back, tiny geometric print. It hides quilting problems but allows the overall quilting texture to show. I wouldn’t recommend a light solid unless your quilting is excellent—mine is not. I don’t remember what fabric is used on the back of Wendy’s.

        The quilt is about 70” square, depending on how wide you cut the final borders.

          I recently found a green all over design wide fabric for my backing... it sort of ties into the trees'; BUT... it really adds to ALL my doors on the houses....because... all my doors are GREEN DOORS.... [in case you are old enough to recall that cool tune by Jim Lowe that was popular back in the late '50's !]- Somehow I recalled the tune when I began this BOM and it has stuck!! Loving this "challenge".. I need to get to my corners... no doors!!
