De-threaded, pressed, and ready for the quilter.

There were about a bazillion threads to pick off the back of those checkerboards.
I mostly concentrated on getting the dark ones that might show through the light fabrics. 

I absolutely love the backing fabric. The perfect colors, the perfect era and mood. 

I'm meeting with the quilter tomorrow. 
I'm giving her wool batting, light weight but lovely drape and texture. 
I can't wait for her to perform her magic on this top!


  1. Wow, you worked fast on the clean up. I tend to put that part off for longer than I should.

  2. Great choice for backing for sure!

  3. That's a great backing! And wool batting will be wonderful for this quilt :)
