It has been a while since I prepped all the fabric for the very special Synesthetic Alphabet quilt I am making. The pre-cut kit was fantastic; in about a day I was able to complete the top and mostly complete the backing.
I am taking a quick pause in making progress on this quilt to ask for some help.
I plan to try to enter this quilt into a quilt show or two. Being a modern quilt, the backing has some interesting piecing and is potentially a part of the conversation that the quilt offers. I realize that at quilt shows, quilt backs are not typically very easy to see (unless it is Elizabeth Hartman‘s Touch This Quilt quilt). 🙂 However, as I am thinking of entering modern quilt shows… I was thinking that it might be wise to think a bit about the orientation of the backing of the quilt.
So my question is: given that this quilt is an unusual orientation, would it make more sense to reverse the right sides up for the quilt top and back, or should they both be in the same direction? I was leaning toward reversing, so that if the lower right corner of the quilt is lifted you would see the upper left corner of the back. Or is it of no consequence because no one is going to really see the back anyway?
I hope my question makes sense. Like I said, it might not even be worth thinking about, but it just struck me as I was piecing the backing and I was curious what input I could get.
