My third QOV top is finally pieced, pressed, and ready to be quilted.
The only thing I have left to do is piece the backing together so that I can request a longarmer and ship it off.
I chose to use Moda's American Primer "Hair Ribbons" fabric for the backing. I got four yards of it at the Houston quilt festival especially for a QOV. I think that I'll just do a solid red for the quilt binding to keep it simple.
Piecing backings is my least favorite quilt task. I find it difficult to get a really straight edge over a long length of fabric. I'm also hoping that I have enough yardage to match-up the pattern on the back. If anyone out there has some tips or tricks they use to really square up their backings, I'd be glad to know them.
