Just a WEE bit more Fabric Obsession Chatter....
I have a pretty big box of fabric marked 'backings'. I went through my fabric recently and pulled out the great big pieces that I ....
- Still liked... or rather LOVED
- Was more than 1 yd
- had been hoarding for awhile but not hoarding so long that the fabric was stiff (you know those ones.. the ones from the 80s and earlier.... stiff fabric!)
This fabric all went into the BACKING box to be oohed and ahhed over each time I needed to back a quilt.
But here lies the problem... I pull this one out..
- it's blue.. the front of the quilt is blue..
- It has flowers... the front of the quilt has redwork flowers (well .. BLUEwork flowers)
- it's big enough
But the problem is... I think this might be TOO NICE for backing!!!
For backings I'm usually a 'use it up' gal. Why waste GOOD STUFF for backing on a wall quilt or a table runner or such? I usually back quilts with the stuff I wondered why I bought it.. stuff I'd used too much and was tired of or stuff that I'd outgrown.
But this fabric I still like a BIT MORE than that... I auditioned it on a chair.. I've laid it out on the ironing board.. I took it's photo.. and now I'm sharing my dilemma with you... The question i s
"Do I need to hoard this piece JUST AWHILE LONGER until I really feel it's backing material.... or should I just USE IT?"
