    I have made one quilt for Quilts for Kids and now I am working on another one. I just wanted to know what you think that I should use for the backing on the last one. I know that if I ask the people on here that I will get a truthful answer. The second is Orange and Black on the edge. I have a brown flannel that I could use or the fabric on the edge that has feathers, moccasins (sp?) and etc.

    Thanks for your responses. I will use the flannel. I guess I should have asked also, should I use a batting (light) also?

    Yes, I agree with the brown flannel because the front is so exciting! and Yes, a little light batting would be nice too. It would make it just a little warmer.
    Thank you for making the Quilts for Kids! :thumbup:

    I have finished the second quilt and now I need to do some quilting in the middle of the second one. What would you suggest, would it be okay for me to do the same as I did for the first one. I machine embroidered around every other block in the first quilt. Do you think that would look okay? Also, I need to put a label on each of them and I don't have any. What would you suggest? The first picture is of the quilt finished and the second one is a close up.
