What lies behind …

Here’s how the back of The Emperor turned out.  It started life as a royal blue background with white hibiscus.

What’s your approach to backing?  I like to have something worth looking at on the back myself.  And as many of my pieces don’t have borders, it’s a great place to show off the big florals and the splashy colourful prints that begged me to take them home, then sat around in the stash for eons.

I saw one recently with veggie prints on the top and donut fabric on the back, thus covering all the food groups!
