I hope your Modern Welcome BOM quilt top is nearing completion.
Many quilts have a whole piece of fabric for the backs of their quilts. Our Modern Welcome quilt has a pieced back.
If you remember at the start of our BOM, the entire project only needed 1/2 metre of background fabric and a charm pack of 5″ blocks.
Gather any charm squares and pieces set aside from the construction of your pieced blocks.
This month you will be constructing the backing for your quilt.
Using your quilt top’s measurements as your guide,
sew pieces together into a rectangular shape at least 2 1/2″ larger than the quilt top on each side.
I use Aurifil Cotton Mako 40wt thread for my machine piecing.
Create an arrangement that pleases you.
Next month….the quilting begins.
