Ready to Quilt


Here is the 16 patch with 4 inch black borders (sorry they don't show up much on the bed) all ready for backing and quilting. I have to go shopping for backing because I don't have anything that big on hand and don't feel like piecing the backing. I also have to get batting. It is big enough for a queen sized bed.

Adding black was a great idea. The colors are so brilliant against the black. Love it!

Wonderful quilt Joyce- I love how the black sets off the other blocks.
You will find the right backing when you least expect it.
Warmest regards,

Oh the quilt is great - the bright colors with a black set looks perfect together. I've been getting in the habit of buying batting when its cheapie on sale - along with backing. What way when I finally finish a quilt, its there.
