Needed to piece fabrics for the back, as I was determined to make every part of this from my stash.
So, in typical me fashion, I studied up on quilt backs...
My second-ever Craftsy class, taught by the wonderful Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!
|A well-thought-out back|
Pretty good result, I believe. I employed work-arounds in using the large-scale floral fabric, as it was mostly pre-cut pieces from a 1990's romper pattern. I had lots of appropriately-colored batik fabric (the on-point squares from the quilt front), but I didn't particularly want to use it; I can still be stingy when dipping into my stash, don't you know.

Blue baby quilt. Another project where I was determined to use up all of a long-stashed fabric (the teal zebra).
stack-n-whack. It makes a very nice alternative side.
