Quilt Back Story

This post is all about the back of a quilt. You'll have to wait till I post Instagram photos of my booth at Quilt Market to see the front of this one or wait till it is published in Quilt Now magazine because the pattern has already been promised for that publication. 

The back story for my Honeycomb quilt begins with some vintage striped fabric that my Mom has had since I was little. I love this fabric and love the funky color combination of the greenish-gold paired with pink and orange. My Sketchbook collection with Art Gallery Fabrics has some of these same colors in the collection. I wanted to design a real statement quilt for my booth and my inspiration for the quilt came from this striped fabric. 

Necessity, more often than not, creates a much more interesting end result. I didn't have enough of any one fabric to make the backing for this quilt and knew I wanted to incorporate a piece of the inspiration stripe in the back so why not make the back as pretty as the front?!?

You may have noticed the neat quilt labels I have sewn into binding on the back of my quilt. I had them made by the Custom Couture Label Company and just love them!

Quilt Market is next week so be sure to follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see everything I have made with my new fabric collection!
