I used scraps from all the color blocks on the front to create one large, fabulous block. I hardly have any (more) scraps from this project! Plus, the quilting showed up SO great on the back. To continue the story from the first post, the back is a celebration of color and togetherness. Like all the people supporting me along my journey.
Then, to blend with the light gray background, I created a smaller, ghost-like gray improv block to float below the large one. It contains the ONLY straight diagonal cut in the whole quilt (the front is all curves). I love that this block exists. It makes me believe that there's always something lurking helpfully behind the scenes that I don't know about.
One more look. I'm still taken with the butterflies.
I'm working on a longer blog post about pieced backings. If you'd like to be considered for publication on the blog, email me with a picture and let me know what you love about your backing. Thank you!
