How not to Quilt # 2


The moment three-quarters of the way through quilting the improv dragonfly started in Katie Pedersen’s workshop when I realized that the white on white fabric I was “using up” as backing was sandwiched printed side in …


Here you can see how the back of this piece will look (the flipped over triangle at the bottom of the photo).

Well, at least it’s not an alphabet print, so let’s not tell anyone, shall we?

I have extensive stash of white on white, cream on cream, off white on off white prints.  Great for overdyeing either on their own or as part of a finished quilt, as Ana Buzzalino does, not so great when trying to make more modern-looking quilts.  But also good for backing.

Does anyone else have this problem of old-fashi?  What do you do?
