I had taken it with me to Mom's ,we both agreed that it really should be 2 quilts ( back was same fabric as front with one strip of black braids in the middle. I forgot to mention the pattern is a braid pattern.Anyway we did find where it needed to be corrected on a couple of corners and we said we could use the backing but that it would be smaller than it should be.
Well when I went to lay it out I found out the backing was and inch too small all around , I was going to make the top part smaller by taking up the seams but I would have had to rip out the top and bottom boarder, Donna would not hear of it , she did not want me to go through all that, so she went to her quilt shop to get more fabric for the back and I should say she brought enough for 3 quilts .
The black above is the backing.Noticed that I did hearts and swirls on the boarder part .I strippled the gold.
She got the quilt today and is very happy with what I fixed for her that she could not do.
next week I will quilt the other one that was suppose to be the backing.
On that one I will do the straight line quilting to look like criss cross work and then she asked me to do more hearts and swirls.
