Finally Made a (Quilt Backing) Decision

Remember this quilt top? It’s not that old, but I have left it sitting all alone in my sewing room for several weeks while I thought about it’s backing. Poor quilt. 🙂

Well, I finally came to a decision. Several weeks ago I got lucky at a thrift store and found several vintage sheets. (I can never find vintage sheets…. and at least I think they’re vintage, if not then they are vintage-ish.) Anyway, I pulled them out the other night and I think this one is going to look perfect with this quilt top.

It’s funny because I really didn’t like it and I almost didn’t buy it, but it was like $1.00, so I went ahead and purchased it. And wouldn’t you know it’s the first one I’ve used? Funny how things work, right? I think it’s absolutely perfect.

Right colors, right pattern, it pulls out the pinks, oranges and the dark and light  blue. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
