Previously, I showed a gray and orange batik squares quilt that I repurposed from a quilt kit because the original fabrics did not play well together. I had trouble getting border I liked or the fabric I did want. I retried another six or so fabrics to no avail. I hauled out the whole gray pile of batiks (thanks, Julie), and found buried a hand dye that had the bluish tinge I wanted. I added the border. Done.
I have promised myself that right after making a top, I am going to make the backing. This should help me get more quilts on the longarm. I pulled out a large piece of gray I got from Connecting Threads on clearance once (I used a lot of it in another back). I also found some orange left from a big piece orange Gwen had given me a while back. The two together I think make a good back. The quilt is about 57 x 70. A good comfort quilt size.
