I haven’t forgotten this quilt. In fact, after the four log cabin blocks, I decided I would not allow myself to cut any more until this top was pieced.
This is the backing fabric.
Now I need to figure out how to piece this backing. I know I am supposed to load this so that the “stretch” of the fabric is parallel to the bars. But since I have to piece the backing, doing it this way will mean a seam allowance will be perpendicular to the rollers. Not a good idea as it will create a large ridge on the backing roller and uneven tension across the back of the quilt.
Anyone have any great ideas on how to deal with this?
