Sew & Tell

This week I finished up the Christmas log cabins quilt top. This was made from the blocks that I received through the Scrappy Christmas Block Swap, plus several that I made from my own stash.

I'm having a bit of a dilemma with the back though. Yesterday I thought I wanted to back it with the same Kona snow I used for the sashing. I had some scraps left over from the top, so I made some stacked coin type strips to add into the back as well.

But then I spotted this gorgeous green Kona - and I have just enough for the back. Now I can't decide. White..... or green???

  1. yikes, I can't help you decide on what to do for the back! sorry! I am not good at choosing.
    But I do love your idea of the peiced backing, love that look!

  2. Oohh...I'm all for a pieced back. Look through "Fresh Modern Quilts" on flickr and there are tons of ideas! Good luck. Blessings, Dee
