Wacky Back

I had a few extra kites when I finished the front of the quilt.  I wasn't sure I wanted to make another quilt with the extra pieces, so I stitched them together for the backing.  Certainly a lot more complicated than a single piece of fabric.  It's a pretty odd composition, but it's backing!  Who cares.

Usually I stitch labels on after I'm done with the quilt, but I thought this would be fun to piece in.  Dated it before it's complete - now I have to have it done by the end of the month.  A week and a half would normally be plenty of time.  But I've been slowed down with fever and fatigue as well as some issues with the quilting.  It's progressing - I have a good chunk of time next weekend.  I should be able to wrap it up by then.


  1. Love the stained glass effect of the four kites together! A unique backing for a unique quilt!

  2. Fever and fatigue sounds like a good reason to take a break...hope you feel better soon!
