Making progress…

…albeit slowly. I pulled out this block quilt that I started ages ago. The top is already complete, so I got to work on the quilt back.

I’m going for a simple back for this one – predominately white, with one strip of the colored blocks down one side. The blocks on the front are 8″ square, so for the back I made similar blocks, but cut them to 4″ square.

I remember now why I put this quilt away without finishing it – it’s big! This is actually the first quilt I started, and without thinking I just jumped right into a queen sized quilt. Once I realized I was being a bit ambitious, I put this one away and started making quilts of a more manageable size. I still really like this one though, and would love to see it on our bed, so I’m going to go for it. Wish me luck!

    WOW! I love your block top! I did a simplified backing for a bed quilt that I made and I love the ability to just flip it over when I want a change. I bet you can’t wait to have it finished.

    Good luck and you can do it!! Quilting one this size definitely takes more rolling and shoving and so on but it can be done! I LOVE the back too…
