Quilt Backings or how would you back this?
How do you decide how to back your quilts? Do you do anything special, designs, left over blocks, different fabric?
I have just finished the top of the Yo-Yo Row quilt seen on the cover of the American Patchwork and Quilting June 2011 issue. and now must back it. I have yet to see a quilt pattern that tells you what to do about the back of the quilt. Usually the directions say "finish quilt by layering quilt top, batting, and backing: baste, quilt as desired" I plan to use the same fabric I used in the rows but that is a lot of one solid color and want to break it up a bit. I thought various size circles of the binding fabric placed randomly on the back would be ok. But with all the great minds in this forum, I wanted your opinions.
What would you do?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Here is a link to the cover, it is the third one down.
