    I just finished piecing a quilt top for a friend. Very easy pattern made from a jelly roll. I have left over fabric in 10" squares that I used to make another quilt and it's the same fabric line.

    What do you think about sewing 9 10" blocks together do a D9P and stick that pattern in the middle of the back of the quilt. (Kinda like having 2 quilts in one)

    Here's a pic. of the top.

    I think it sounds pretty cool. I see a lot of pieced backs on here.

    I like pieced backs too but I think if it were me I would prefer a few of the same type of blocks on the back.

    I adore, adore, adore pieced backs!! I was coming up in the quilting world when "back art" was coming into it's own and now almost always do this on my quilts.

    Go for it!!

    That sounds like a good idea too... I'll do a section or 2 of D9P and then add some of the blocks like the front. Not sure I'll have enough fabric but I'll check it out.

    Thanks for all your comments everyone... It has encouraged me to move forward.

    Beautiful quilt and I love your idea. I also like the idea of the pillowcases.

    Yes, yes, yes! I love using my leftovers on the backs! I'm not a scrapper, so it let's me use every last piece and not feel guilty for wasting fabric!
