I’m in the market for a new leader/ender project. I picked up this gorgeous piece of fabric a while back and thought it might be the perfect constant for another scrappy quilt.
Remember this full bin of 2 1/2 inch squares? That last little project didn’t put a dent in it.
I grabbed this die to cut up some of the blue.
Here is my test block. I quite like this.
I’m in a bit of a quandary though. I realized when I cut these squares that this background fabric is 60 inches wide. I have over two yards of it. It would make a perfect quilt back, so maybe I should save it for that.
What would you do?
Have a great day!

I’m all about the immediate gratification – other quilt backing options will appear, but this is perfect for the little squares – go for it!
i agree with everyone else. use it for these blocks. it’s perfect. you might even have enough left for binding. good luck. patti in florida
Use it for the blocks! It’s so pretty combined with those prints.
I’d be tempted to keep going, because that is a REALLY gorgeous constant. Backs are less important, and another one will come along. The block is sooooo pretty!!!
I agree,with marilyn: use it for the frontside.
By the way Katy ,thanks for the beautiful foto’s and the texts !
Hmm, my humble thoughts are, use it for the front. I only look at the backs of quilts to see the quilting..it looks calming in-between your other squares.
