DWM ~ Backings and Tops

This weekend I finally started feeling good enough to do a little mucking about in the sewing room. I got one Quilt of Valor quilted and bound. I will share that on Friday. Yesterday, I was looking at tops I made in AZ and started pulling backings for them. I think this QOV/backing combination will be the next on the frame.


I’m considering this print for the back of the grad quilt:


Here’s another combination:


Scrappy Nce Rail will get a soft solid backing.


It sure what is what in this grouping:

The reality that is currently setting in, is just how many bindings I have ahead of me! Yikes!

  1. So many happy fabrics! Love that ticket print. I just bought new needles for binding – the quilt shop owner told me longer needles are less stressful on the fingers. I’m gonna give them a try. Have fun quilting all those fabulous tops!

    I’m right there with you, tops made, need back and binding put together to quilt. I have 3 now ready to bind but my pile to quilt first is growing.

  3. They all look like perfect choices to me!

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better. Lovely choices for all the backings. I like the yellow colorful “morse code” for the last one. I’d love to help you bind them, if they remain unbound until I get there. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Bindings are good..that means FINISHES!!!

  7. Nice fabric combinations! Bindings…one of my least favorite things to do!

    You’ve got some fun backings selected. Bindings are one of my favorite parts of finishing a quilt, but you’ll have a lot to finish if you get these all quilted.
