I tend to gravitate towards duvet covers because they have two sides to them so when you cut them apart you have two different pieces of fabric – two quilt backs!
Simply put your piece together two or three pieces of the same fabric to create one large piece of fabric for your quilt back.
So you can choose to divide the backing in two and do one half in one print or color and one in another.
I really like this way of making a quilt back. It’s a fun way to use leftover fabric, fat quarters, and other larger pieces of fabric.
You can do this with leftover blocks from other quilts or workshops, you can use a single stripe of fabric, or you can use a scrappy pieced stripe.
This essentially equates to making a second quilt top specifically for the back using blocks as the method for piecing and arranging your layout.
