Scala - Pieced Backing

Scala {Pieced Backing}

It’s been a week of healing and recovery here, and thankfully both my husband and I are fever free and starting to both feel better and have more energy. I always say the last person to get sick in a household takes longer to recover, and that proved true for my husband.

Remember the Bonus HSTs I had remaining after piecing the Scala quilt top?

I was able to use them to create a fun pieced backing this week.

I plan to use a green thread to quilt a meandering leaf free motion quilting motif. I practiced that motif on my Bird on a Nest placemat. Time to baste the quilt so I can get started!

    The back is going to be as cool as the front of this quilt. A good quilt to grow with.

    Ohhh! I love the back!

    Beautiful backing! It looks like this will be one that can be used either way…

    A very cool backing. Glad you are both fever free and recovering. The flu is really no fun at all.

    Love the back as much as I love the front. Glad you are well now.

    Yay for a two-sided quilt. The green thread will be so pretty on the black, and easy on your eyes to quilt. I’m glad you are both feeling better.

    Reversible! Will this be two patterns for the price of one? Asking for a friend…
    On another note , thanks for telling us about the thirty day yoga challenge you joined. I joined also, and it has helped me get back into a more regular yoga practice, which hadn’t been the same since Covid disruptions.

    Love this quilt – front and back!
    Also you are a treasure through the sharing of your processes and your use of left over fabric.
    An inspiration as always.

    First, I am glad you are both feeling much better. Second, WOW! Love the fun back you created for this quilt. The quilting will be fun to see too and sounds perfect.

    Happy you are feeling better (both) and happy to see this fun backing for your Scala quilt. So clever to give those HSTs freedom to roam. Happy quilting!

  11. Both front and the back of this quilt are very striking and have such a nice modern vibe.

  12. Is it a fish or a plane? No, it is a quilt block. Such a fun backing. May you continue to heal and hope you feel good as new soon.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
