Add a Little Color

This panel got tacked onto this quarter's WIP list because I needed a boy baby quilt fast. Then I learned my new nephew is actually going to be a niece, and she's due NEXT month instead of last month. I've put together a different quilt for that little bundle of joy now, but I've still been itching to get stitching on this colorless masterpiece.

Why not add a little color to the back??? Or a lot of color...

The new quilt back is entirely from stash. You probably can't tell from the photos, but the sashing is Moda Grunge. I thought that might be more fun than plain black.

After I got done piecing the 10-inch blocks with their sashing together, the back is just a tiny bit bigger than the back. Which is fine when you aren't in love with the borders. I didn't want to loose a bit of that Grunge!

I measured the back on my longarm, and I could still comfortably quilt this with another three inches or so on each side. So now I'm playing with the quilt top, then I may have to play again with the quilt back. I'm really liking how the project looks so far!

Linking up with Alycia Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


  1. Love, love, LOVE the colorful backing for your colorless quilt!!

  2. Love all the color!!
    and that panel is amazing!!

  3. I don't see which one is the back and which one the front. :-) I love the wild animals! Have a nice Sunday! Regula

  4. That is such a cool panel, and will make a great quilt front and back!
