It's the backing!

I wasn't happy with these two little tops. I didn't love the way the fabric scraps played together. Probably because I'm nearing the bottom of this particular scrap box and have used these same prints over and over and over again.

I'd gone up to the sewing room to dig out something else. Because I thought I had the backing for these quilts already. And to get to what I wanted (which I never did find) I had to move a pile of yardage from that wonderful Craigs List find earlier this year.

The two yard cuts of bright and cheerful what-was-I-thinking that I had second thoughts about as soon as I got it home? (But only because I decided I should've got some more traditional prints instead)

It makes these two quilts work. And now I really do love them! Not to mention that I'm happy I used up that hunk of fabric.

It's wonderful when the perfect fabric just jumps right out of the stash!! Glad you're now liking these two quilts because they look great to me :)
