Christine at Backside Fabrics recently provided wide quilt backings for a couple of secret sewing projects for Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs and me.
I love that you can shop the wide backs by color, size, manufacturer, and collections such as Widescreen by Carolyn Friedlander, Peppered Cottons, Grunge by Basic Gray, Kaffe Fassetts's Circles and Carpet.
And don't forget the value section. This gray and white Sun Burst is sleeper on the screen but beautiful in person.
Have doubts about how the fabric will look and feel before purchasing? Christine offers FREE sample swatches (10 per month to US costumers and a nominal charge to ship internationally). She sticks a label to the backside of each swatch so each is identified.
Clockwise are the following wide quilt backs:
- Carpet by Kaffe Fassett in Green
- Grunge by Basic Grey in Ash
- Peppered Cotton by Pepper Cory in Peacock
- Widescreen by Carolyn Friedlander in Grey
Robert Kaufman Kona White for a project I have in mind with a lot of negative space so piecing the background for the quilt top width will not be required either. And, it feels just like the regular Kona except it's 108 inches wide!
Remember...1 Yard of Wide Backing = 2.5 Yards of 42" Wide Fabric
