Backings galore!

Today I made backings. I'm pooped now. :)

Below is the backing for the Star Struck quilt. I'm going to make the binding the same pink/peach color that's in the backing.

That one was rather easy to make and took about half an hour.

The backing for the Heart quilt took much longer! First I had to finish up the label. Then I sewed it to some larger pieces which make up for the upper half of the backing.

When I was cutting 2" strips for the scrappy part of the quilt, I also cut 6" strips for the backing. What you can't see is that the strips go all the way down to the foot of the bed! I guess I have enough. ;)

So tomorrow I'll try to pin the heart quilt. Gotta clean and vacuum the living room. The pick up all my safety pins, cuz I spilled them... again. :P Good thing I always keep them closed! Then pin it between laundry loads and my sister-in-law's bridal shower that the church is hosting. Oops. We don't have a gift for her yet... :D

Loved your backings, that label back there looked time consuming though! Tracey
