QOTD 9-6 Backings
Seeing Beverly's gorgeous backing made me think of this question.
I started as a hand quilter and my first quilt was a whole cloth quilt. The 'traditon' was a white (or solid color)backing so the quilting would show up. I'm stuck in that old habit, I rarely use prints for backing and I have never made one with blocks on the back.
Now, learning to machine quilt the prints come in handy to hide the mistakes (I'm still not good at FMQing lol).
I know some like Robbi are just starting out so they will probably be more adventurous with the backing.
I'm still favoring white muslin for backings and trying to get out of my comfort zone.
What did you start out with for backings and what do you prefer??
