For years, my oldest niece said her favorite color was black (because black is “all the colors”). Just before I went back to visit in April, I heard her say that Pink and Purple are her favorite colors, something that she maintained during our visit (“…but I still like black, too!”). I know that my nieces have lots of quilts already, but I couldn’t help but think of my Magnolia Mystery quilt top that is waiting to be finished.
Now that I can clearly see gifting this quilt to my niece, it was time to figure out the backing for the quilt! I turned to my favorite source for wide quilt backings, BackSide Fabrics. I love that Christine groups her fabrics in different ways. I looked at the pink and purple fabrics, and I quickly selected Grape Ombre Scroll.
I received the fabric late on Saturday night, and I think it will even make the perfect binding for the quilt. Now I just need to finish a few projects so I can get this quilted, finished, and gifted!
Inserted in my order was this notice about a big sale that will be happening at BackSide Fabrics in just over a week, and I thought I’d share in case you have been on the lookout for a perfect backing for a project or two, as well!
