Chintzd Up Haze Kilim Backing

Thought I'd drop in quickly and show you the backing I've just finished for my Chintzd Up Haze Kilim quilt.
I put the photo's into the clever mosaic maker to be able to show the front and back side by side!
                                                       Front                                                Back     

I wanted to keep the theme of dots and florals from the front of the quilt so did a patched backing with some of the leftover fabrics.     
 Talking about using leftover fabrics, I was invited by the gorgeous Rae Ann of Cutie Pinwheel fame to contribute on her Stash Manicure blog. This is a blog where you can find many wonderful ways to use up some of the fabrics in our stash. I am thrilled to be a part of it, check my post here if you want to see! Hope your Sunday is a wonderful one. xo

Really beautiful, Cathy! It goes well with the front and showcases some beautiful fabrics! Your quilt just gets better and better!

Beautiful back Cathy - this is going to be a stunning quilt front and back!
PS I use those clip on skirt/trouser coathangers to hang quilts on my fence - I find it easier than using pegs.

It just looks glorious Cathy. I love having dramatic backs too and often use those big prints that are too gorgeous to cur for the backing. Well done on the invite to the stash manicure site and also being given the nod by Kaffe and Co.

FABULOUS front AND back!!! I love to piece my quilt backs. : ) It makes them interesting too and is a surprise when the quilt is turned over.

This is beautiful, Cathy, and I particularly enjoyed your post over at Stash Manicure. I have a landscape fabric for my son's first "manly" quilt that is not enough for the entire quilt, and I've been playing with ideas on how to piece it into a backing. Lots of food for thought here and at your Stash Manicure post. Thanks for sharing!
