Hate is a strong word so I won't use it. But I really, really, dislike piecing quilt backs. If I want to do piecing I'll make a quilt top. I love quilts that have pieced backs and love the way they look but I'm too impatient to do it for my quilts. When that top is finished I want to load it on the frame and quilt it. Now.
The LQS sells extra wide fabric (108") so that's what I've been using since I discovered that section of the store. But I couldn't find a back that would work for this quilt. The only ones that would work color-wise had flowers all over them. This quilt is for Adam so flowers won't do.
So I had to stop whining and piece a back. Well, I didn't really stop whining, but I did do the piecing. It was nice to use up the scraps and the oops pieces. I had set them aside thinking they would come in handy for some project some day. And I like the way it turned out.
And here is the top . . .
