City View Quilt Back

For the back of this quilt, I divided the 12 fabrics that were used in the City View quilt top into two groups, those that were "more" yellow, and those that were "more" orange.  I made four HSTs of each fabric and joined them into two zig zag rows, for the focus of the quilt back.

The over all size of the quilt top is 52" x 68", a bit larger than the 48" x 60" size ordered.  It's larger because of the design; my choice was larger or smaller, so I went with larger.  Some of that will shrink up during the long-arm quilting, and still more when my customers wash it.

Now, we just have to wait for the long-arm quilter to work her magic, so I can get the binding on this beauty and get it in the mail.
May your bobbins always be full,


  1. This is lovely - beautiful colours and the back is perfect :)

  2. Another quilt back that could easily be a quilt by itself, it's beautiful and perfect for that quilt. Great work!

  3. I like the quilt back. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!
