So the quilt top of the challenge is done. Now it needs a back!
I had a few star blocks left over from the top so it made sense to set them in the corners of the back.
Just like for the top, I had just enough rose and cranberry fabric to make the back. Here's me and my puppy looking over the layout on half of the top.
After a bunch of cutting and seaming, I was pleased to have this for the back. The stars are set near to where the quilt edges will sit.
I know it looks huge but it needs to be bigger than the top so it can be loaded on the long arm for quilting. That part is the next step! Stop by again to see that get done!
