Found the Perfect Backing

After umming and ahhing about a backing for I Heart You, I finally found the perfect fit. Cute but not too over-the-top, on sale, and the required 9 yards available.

Sew Stitchy by Aneela Hoey

I probably won't get to make this quilt till later in the year; I still need to quilt my Scrappy Tripalong, and I want to start piecing my Marmalade/Star Blossoms quilt as soon as I can (once I get some market sewing out the way next week). If only there were more hours in the day! At least now that daylight savings is done there's more opportunity to be inside where it's warm.

Nice choice for a backing, Kate! When the quilt is put together, it is probably nice enough to flip over and have the backing face up!
You sound pretty busy with your projects. I just wish I had some time as well as inspiration to get back into the sewing room.

Oh yes, that's a terrific choice for the backing. There's always more to do than there is day to do it but you'll get there. Nice fabrics.
