    This isn't finished yet....just the top, but I was very pleased with how it turned out. The blocks are 10 inches finished. A friend had the Betty Boop fabric and a couple of "marble" fat quarters. I had the other lavender colors (looks kinda blue on the pics) in my stash. One inch red sashing, and 3-1/2 inch black border. Now to find backing. Do I piece together all of my lavender/purple scraps? OR Make a trip to the fabric store for a big piece???? Decisions....decisions!

    Piece the backing. Why buy more when you already have it ?
    I love the pieced backs.

    Love Betty Boop Quilt Top. No sure about the back, I guess whatever choice you decide will be ok. Me as a beginner I use one big piece.
