I've hit a small snag. That quilt backing I was making in my previous post? I think it wants to be a quilt top.
This is actually a little bit funny, because by Friday evening I hated what I had so far and I wasn't convinced I should keep going, even if I hid it on the back of the quilt. It was just too busy for me. If I didn't even like it as a back, I certainly wasn't considering it as a top!
I think I started coming around when I discovered I had enough scraps of that blue swirly fabric to go around the jumbled center. I think that visually calmed the center. Finding enough darker scraps to piece into a border to frame everything pulled it all together. I really like it!
Now, I need to make a decision. Do I abandon my challenge to not buy anything to make the original quilt, or do I head to the quilt shop and buy backing for not one, but two quilts?
What would you do?
