Scrapping my back

Having finished making my little cheddar/blue top using orphans blocks, I thought it only fitting that the back be pieced with orphans as well. I love doing that. It takes more time, of course, but I was able to use up scraps of fabrics I wasn't using and blocks which I was happy to put someplace.  It's not sexy but it's useful!!

All our kids are here in Sunriver, along with our darling grandson, Ryan, who is happy in my closet once again! It's not looking very white here, but I'm not unhappy because I can walk on the bikepaths without ice!

Hope everyone is having a great week!


  1. I love the pieced back! It makes the quilt so much more interesting and I love anything scrappy! Enjoy your family and that cute little grandson.

  2. "It's not sexy but it's useful!!" *LOL*

  3. I really enjoythe challenge of working out how to make left-overs into a back. Yours looks great.
    Happy new year

  4. Hey Randy, I love the back as much as the front! happy New Year! cheers, Claire W.

  5. I love the back, Randy. I think pieced backs bring a lot of interest to a quilt. -Sandi in TN where we are having a heat wave.
