You've put hours of hard work into the quilt top and it looks gorgeous, but what about the backing fabric. Don't cheapen your quilt by using any old thing from your stash or what was on sale at the fabric store. It's important to use the same quality backing fabric as you did for the top.

Some other quilt backing tips:

  • Cut the backing at least 4" wider than the top on all sides
  • When seaming your backing fabric, use vertical or horizontal seams, whichever requires less fabric
  • Be sure to press your backing seams open
