Basket Weave, simple backing

This strip of 4 patches fell off the back of the studio door and "accidentally" became the perfect addition to a Basket Weave backing that was just a teensy bit too short.  I was careful to sew it off  center, just for fun.  Nope, it doesn't match, doesn't have same colors, just seemed to be a nice contrast to all the circular motifs in the blue/white fabric.  



This tree was my Birthday Tree, 10 years ago, and barefly fits the camera lens.  No, it's not my birthday, just wanted to get the quilt backing in the photo.  This is a small leaf Linden - it now provides shade for the house and maintains this pretty shape.

Insert strips add visual interest -- and save you from the frustration of trying to get the backing fabric to line up perfectly. (Because if it doesn't, it really shows.) Your tree is doing well!

I think that strip of 4-patches on the back is like a little hidden bonus for the quilt recipient. :)
Pretty tree.
