back for Reunion @ midnight

wip . . . backing for Reunion @ Midnight.

I get so much satisfaction when I can take the scraps from the top of a quilt, and use them on the back.









I had some nice shaped scraps from the Reunion @ Midnight top.  Easy to randomly put together.




 Backs are fun to come up with.  You can basically do just about anything . . . no pattern is right or wrong.

Piecing can sometimes be a bit of a challenge especially when there aren't any instructions.









READY TO QUILT !!!

  8. Oh, that reminds me of MY unfinished Reunion Quilt Top. Duh.
    But your backing looks truely great. I love using leftovers from the top for the backing as well. Thanks for sharing your process of making the backing, I often stick to easy backings (to avoid the maths...) :o)
    Great job!
