Pieced Backs

Pieced Backs are so much fun. Sometimes I think I like them better than the front - perhaps the fact that it's the back makes me feel more free to just do whatever. And going with the flow can be when cool, creative stuff happens.

Rebecca at Chasing Cottons is having a quilt back link party and it motivated me to gather a bunch of my backs in one place!

I used up a bunch of ends from the front for a simple strip of color

honu back
I wanted to feature the charm squares and I loved the result!

My first try at applique circles - fun to do new stuff on the back!

they are all so beautiful! I rarely take the time to piece a backing, I'm normally too excited at that point to take the time. I wish I did it more!

Love your quilt backs... backs are a great way to experiment and try new things. I love something unexpected on the back...

That Harry Potter block is phenomenal! I love the look of the circles too. I'll have to give that a try.
