Almost done with the back -

I actually found some time to SEW today!! - YAY me!! - ;))

I'm trying something different this time - we'll see if it works - ;))

I cut the batting roughly the size of the baby quilt - with a little extra on each side - then I worked up the backing in two columns with several sections in each -

Below is a photo of the two sections on the bottom right side -
the raspberry/purple/pink (depending on the lighting - LOL) is the top layer - shown on the right -
both layers are pinned right sides together - as usual

Stitched it down with my walking foot - just the backing to the batting at this point -

Flipped it open - pressed it all out nice and neat (gotta love that fusible batting) -

And it came out pretty straight considering I had no idea where the plaid lines were because they were UNDER the raspberry/purple/pink fabric as I was sewing -

Layered and pinned the next section - basically working from the bottom to the top on the right side of the backing - left to right in the photo -

Stitched that down -

Flipped it open - and pressed it again - smoothing it all out -

Pinned the next section on -

Stitched - flipped - pressed it open -

When I had the right side stitched down - I took the left side (all the sections had been sewn together so it was one loooong piece) - pinned that down - right sides together - as usual -

Stitched - flipped - pressed it open -

And it doesn't look too bad - but it looks really light and pink in this photo -

The colors are more "true" in this one -

And in this one -

So - next up - is to baste all around the outside edge - to keep the edges tacked down so they don't accidentally get caught up or folded somehow -


I'll start playing with the front -

And I'm on to Plan C -

So I'll show you later -

See what you think - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Working on it -

But I'm not quite there yet -

Lots of stuff going on around here -

I thought I would get some quilting done over the weekend - but it's Wednesday already - and I don't have much more to show you than I had on Friday -

Maybe tomorrow -

I hope - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
