We’ve gotten lots of feedback about backing your quilts over the years! We’ve heard everything from using bed sheets to scrap-busting to fleece to another quilt “top” as a solution. We’re all about creativity and certainly understand we “do what we gotta do”… But, as we all know, big quilts need lots of fabric for the backing!
One of the things you may not realize is 108″ wide quilting cotton is a big time saver and it saves you money! You want the same high quality fabric for your backing, you’ve invested all the time and love into making your quilt top, why skimp on the backing?
Of course, your favorite friendly quilt shop can help you make the best selection for your quilt project size! The best part of our quilting community is how generous our shop friends are with their experience!
Mike, our Sewing Salesman, has a tip from one of his shops Wandering Stitches. Check out this quick video to learn the value added to wide goods.
