    Does anyone know where (or IF) you can buy pre-printed quilt BACKS for people learning FMQ? I know they have whole cloth tops pre-printed, but they are MUCH to advanced for me at this stage! I just want to be able to sandwich a smaller quilt (lap/sofa size) and quilt it from the back, following a pre-printed all-over design.

    it says "do not prewash" because the design is printed in a wash out ink. It should have minimum shrinkage.
    It is printed and available from Benartex and comes by the yard. Write me if you can't find it.

    Very interesting. Is there another pattern other than this one?

    So if you were to get this type of backing, you would have to load it on the quilt frame backwards to follow the pattern. Has anyone loaded this on the quilt frame and quilted it that way?

    I have never seen anything like this before!
