There's two things to tell you about today!
First, I have a new quilting roundup over at Sew, Mama, Sew ~ 8 Modern Quilt Backs. Not only are there several tutorials, but oodles of inspiration if you follow the links to the free class, flickr group, and Pinterest boards at the end of the post.
I usually find both planning and stitching those larger quilt backs a challenge. I try to keep some larger "quilt back worthy" prints in my stash, so at least I have more options. But I do really like a multi-pieced back too, so there's always a quandary. Anyway, let me know what you think. And if you have a go-to method or especially love a new technique you see, I'd love to hear about it!
Also, here's a link to last month's Twelve Fundamental Quilting Skills if you missed that.
The other thing I want to mention is that Rachael/imagine gnats just announced the kick-off of Selfish Sewing Week!Brookfield Bag by Sew Sweetness. It's a free pattern on Sew, Mama, Sew, and I thought it would be perfect for every-day. So far I have all my pieces cut and prepped!
