I have pieced a backing for the Carnaby Street #scrappytriplong quilt. By pieced I mean a single seam along the length. That's hardly piecing, is it?
I used a small floral from Hope Chest by Josephine Kimberling that I got on sale from Pink Castle Fabrics, it sort of doesn't go, which I like. All the elements of it match - the colours and the pattern, but I think probably because the solids in the top and the geometric prints are so loud compared to the florals you are drawn to those and don't realise there are a lot of delicate colours and prints in Carnaby Street.
One of these Henry Glass 108" solids would have been perfect, but I didn't have any and I was too impatient to wait, and (like I said before) I like how it sort of doesn't quite match, it adds to the scrappy look.
Off you go to Chris and her long arms, little quilt, have fun and see you soon.
