The top for that back laughed & said, add a muslin border, then the back will be big enough., a photo by aviva_hadas (Amy) on Flickr.
I just purchase 7 yards of muslin, so I can either cut WOF or LOF. Which would you do & why?
If you don't recall, my pieced back needs to be bigger to fit its top & I decided that a muslin "border" would do the job perfectly.
Black on black squares print chosen for the binding & it will probably be quilted using a stipple. For those of you who might want to know.
I right now don't have a preference because I have a use for 6 inch squares & 2.5 x 10.5 strips & 1.5 x 10.5 strips - I can get those units out of the left overs either way the fabric is cut.
Heck, I even have a use for 1.5 inch squares of white!
