After searching dozens on online stores and finding nothing or "Sold Out" on the wide backings that appealed to me for my yellow scrap quilt (previous post) I went to a local fabric discount store and found wide backing, well, 108" for one and 60" for another, and also a piece of batik that I would have used but enough piecing already!
Here are the three. The top one is already on my longarm hence the funny shadow. I had to turn my camera upsidedown and hold it underneath to get the photo. The yellow works with the top and the oranges work with accents in the top. The gal who is getting this wanted "nature" in it, so flowers and butterflies seem a good choice. Yeah!
The second one was too funky to pass
up. It is 108" wide and there was 4 meters left on the bolt so I bought
it all. It will work on several things in my think tank. The background is white, don't know why it looks pink in this photo.
The last one is only normal width. I just love it and wanted to show it to you. I've no
plans, but my yellow and orange yellow stash is still here (the yellow
quilt used scraps only) so it may wind up in another project... cheerful
after a long winter! Please excuse the shadow of my arm
across the middle! Never noticed it until it was uploaded here.
