This step in finishing my "Go Crazy" quilt took a wee bit longer than I thought it would!
First I had to source the backing fabric, which I found at the Pendelton outlet store in my home town of Washougal, WA., a beautiful orangey-red melton wool for $5.95/yard.
Then I had to find some buttons for the back. I planned on sewing my yellow pearl buttons on the front, while securing them to the back of the quilt with a mix of multi-colored 2 hole buttons. I found those in an antique store in my nearby town of Camas, WA called A Twist on Time.
I love my Pendleton store.
So then I got to work....
I am very tickled by how the back turned out, I must admit.
The final question of course is how to handle the binding. I've thought of lots of ideas, and will settle on one so that I can have this finished by New Year's...I hope!
