    Looks great! I've done that before. The only word of caution is to be sure to baste down your edges since the front will be smaller than the back. It's easy to catch the edge otherwise.

    I have heard of doing this before. I think your quilt is very pretty & your quilting is great. Good job!

    I have some large floral prints for backing too - now I will have the courage to try this. Love the way it looks on the front!

    I bet others have done it before you. AND I am sure others will be doing it now that they saw how pretty yours is coming along.

    Love the quilt especially the colors. There is a book out that tells you to follow the pattern on the back for a design.

    You have a great idea. And the quilt will be reversible which is nice.

    It turned out beautiful! Never would have thought of doing the back instead of the front. What a new way to do things.
