ahh... I DO like the mermaids..they represent all the pretty girls of Happiness Key! I do look at the back..can't help myself. stripe binding is perfect

Lee Ann (RedHen)

Love the Mermaids. I am putting my HK in a quilt show in May...will let you know how I do on the judges comments.

Dee M

Good decision making and choice! The stripe will be perfect for the binding, too.

Marie A

Perfect! I agree that a fabric you are not in love with is good for the back...if it at least makes sense with the front and this totally does. Love the stripe binding. I didn't vote but Its perfect with both sides.

Barbie K

You never know how important the backing can be... I entered a quilt in an art show, a juried art show at Austin Peay State University. It was accepted, for the back side, not the front!

Betsy Albertson

Love your choices, the mermaids actually look very happy they got chosen, lol! Hmmmm, I usually don't look at the back of quilts, maybe I need to start!

Lynn Provencher

Yes...after reading your explanation...I will agree...BRILLIANT...but shhh, don't tell, I ALWAYS flip the quilt to see what's on the backside - I'm nosey that way :)

Shirley in Canada

Brilliant!!! And I found my HK ... with two words not yet embroidered :(

Beth Friend

Great choices.


I used Elvis fabric on back of Noah's ark wallhanging that I just gave my husband who is a chuldren's pastor. He loves Elvis. The wallhanging is in his office at church and the backing is our little joke!


Mermaids are perfect for this!


I'll flip a wall quilt over, as long as nobody is looking! Don't tell!!!! One of these days, the quilt will fall off the wall as I'm peeking and I'll have some explaining to do! I tend to be nosy, more for seeing how someone did something to better my knowledge! (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). I think the mermaids are cute for the back. I like a print on the back instead of a solid whenever possible.

Karen Lieberman

LOVE the mermaids!! And I can't even remember what I used on the backs of quilts that are hanging. LOL
