Dutch quilt - backing
I'm working on the backing for the Dutch quilt. It is a fun process even if it involves the use of math. I'm starting with a panel which was given to me in Amsterdam by the very nice owner of the quilt store. I think it was her way of showing she understood just how much we were spending and to show her appreciation for the crazy spending. (Jill, if you are reading this, I so wish you had come with us that day. I think you would have thoroughly enjoyed it!) Seriously, I'd go back to Amsterdam just for this store.
I put a narrow border around the panel and will be adding color blocks to the left and the right. The rest of the back will be black. I think it will look great, and I have to get this done relatively soon because I reserved time on the long-arm for October 8. I'm scheduled for all day and I plan to take my time and go slow.
