Another pretty pieced quilt back

love this quilt back (and fabric!) I love the little legs behind the quilt, thinking she has really long arms or mom just wanted her in the pic.

I love pieced quilt backs! Also the ones with big fabric blocks pieced together (rather than a border as on this one).

I've never done a pieced backing. I have 1 & 2 yd cuts of several fabrics that match the quilt top. The top is a Turning Twenty.

examples of ways to quilt back with different fabrics. This would also be an easy way to make a modern quilt, if each backing idea was a separate block and then mix em up.

John Flynn has a technique called a diagonal quilt back , he has instructions on his web site.hope that helps.
