Furrows and 4-Patch - DONE
I've finished this after the photo was taken -- had to purchase more quilting thread for the final border. I ended up NOT quilting the ribbon at all and like how it appears to be laying on the surface of the quilt.
And this is my pieced backing, having promised myself to use what I have, rather than buying NEW.
I may try cutting my backings at 10 1/2 inch or 12 1/2 inch squares from left over fabrics, and see if that type backing might be more attractive. But let's face it - ONE or two large NEW pieces are MUCH less work than piecing 48-64 squares for a backing ... (Elaine, be strong and stick with that plan!).
