Love this backing. To me, it is 'stand-alone' beautiful. Would be perfect with this side up on a bed...

How to prepare your quilt backing for machine quilting

Half Square Triangles Tutorial 3 ways

frantastic says, "I know this must look a little strange, but this is one of my favorite ways to piece a back. It is called a zipper back. Vertical or horizontal, it is fun. Pick two fabrics and make enough squares to alternate in a row top to bottom or side to side. Then sew each fabric to either side of the squares. I think these squares are 6 inches. Any size works. Try it!!"

How to make backing fabric to fit your quilt, when it doesn't. John Flyn's method with diagrams. ***I frequently do this! It is GREAT on busy backs! Sometimes I don't have quite enough fabric for the back, or I want to save a few $$$ on backing. My guild even asked me to teach class on it! ****RobbieP says - DO use a .5" seam, make sure to take the selvages off, and press the seam open. I long arm quilt and love it because the seam isn't in the same place as I roll!
