The backing is really my favorite part of the quilt. I was actually able to align the pieced vertical row with the center strip from the front of the quilt. It looks amazing! I put a mod log cabin around the label. I can't believe it turned out so pretty. This is the second pieced back I've done. It is incredible how much my skills have improved since I started quilting about two years ago.
It's quilted with light gray thread. I always have problems when I use different top and bobbin colors, so I went with gray on both sides. I did stippling and, although not perfect, it looks acceptable, and made with love.
Today was my oldest daughter's first day of kindergarten. She enjoyed it immensely, but I feel like I've been run over by a truck--emotionally and physically--and maybe am coming down with something. Kind of like back in college when I crammed for exams, then came home for break and spent the first couple days on the sofa recovering. Good thing a hurricane is one its way. Now I have an excuse to just lay around and not do anything:)
