I finished up this quilt top tonight, using the Scruffily Pattern from Moda Bake Shop (designed by Rachel at P.S. I Quilt).
It's a really fun and easy pattern. Perfect for a beginner.
The fabric is Simple Abundance, which I love.
So, here's my question: What should I do for the backing? I could easily use yardage from one of my favorite Simple Abundance prints (it would be hard to pick a favorite, but I think I could rise to the challenge). I'd definitely be interested in a less pricey option. I have quite a few squares left over (both the charm squares and some layer cake squares), so I could do something scrappy in combination with a solid. I'm planning on using the leftover jellyroll strips (of which I have lots) for a scrappy binding, but I could be talked out of that if they'd be better used in the backing. Thoughts? Suggestions? I'd love to hear what you think.
P.S. I love the way Liz quilted this. I'm planning on copying this for my version. Her backing is awesome too...
