I had thought I was ready to start quilting on my "Mulberry Bush" quilt. (If you go down the page you can see it completed before quilting.) However, the fabric I originally bought for the backing
is too small. When I added the borders it made this quilt larger than 45" fabric will cover.
So now I need to go out and find a suitable backing fabric since what I have large enough in my stash is not working on this piece.
Since I am going to the International Quilt Festival in Chicago next week with my sister, I think I will just wait to get something perfectly suited for this quilt when I am there. Or perhaps I should think of piecing the back with several fabrics?
So in the meantime, I may be forced to start a smaller piece. We will see.
