    Very cool! I really like the back too!

        That is so neat. I guess I'm going to have to try a JRR along the way

            Love both sides! I'm so intimidated at piecing my backs.

              Me too! This back was easy. I applied a design for a 9" quilt block to fat quarters and 'almost' fat quarters. With the 'almosts', I added some bits and pieces to make the blocks large enough. What was important was to get both the back and the top centered. I baste on a table, and I have a basting pin taped to the exact center of the table, so I know where to place the centers.

              Now - I did a quilt last year where the backing wasn't large enough, and I decided to add a border to make it the right size. That was a failure, as the border ended up very crooked. I won't try that again! At least not for a long time!

                Thanks so much for the reply. I had a quilt and the backing material was too small and wanted to piece it but just couldn't get up the courage. I think I may try piecing a back on something smaller.

                  Here is another pieced back. The trick here is that the inserted piece is not centered. I joined blocks that were left over from the quilt top.
