At last the top of the very hungry caterpillar quilt is all finished and sewn together. It took me 3 goes to get one of the panels on right, and even now it's a bit wonky but no one will notice except me!
Today I had 5 minutes spare so I quickly pieced the back of the quilt. I had previously purchased this blue to go with the rest of the fabrics but it was just a little short for the quilt. I'd saved some of the strips of 'food' fabric to put on the back. The 3 strips were enough to give me the length I needed for the backing.
Then I got all gung ho and pinned them together and started to plan where I was going to join the backing and the top - given that this was 'quilt as you go' so the joins need to be strategic.
And then we had another fail, the second, well third actually for this project. A personal best I think. The backing wound up all wonky as I decided to quilt from the front and had to remove the safety pins a bit prematurely. Oh well, I'm going to have some time on my hands next week so will be wielding the unpicker.
And the 5 metres of binding is all ready to go and everything!
