Wide Backing giveaway!

blocks, blocks, blocks

Today I am ready to assemble the quilt-as-you-go blocks that are my current work in progress.  After some no-fuss machine sewing, I'll baste the twin-sized quilt top to a large, one-piece backing from Connecting Threads.  (You know... the one I forgot to use last time!)

beginning Blue

I'll be documenting the finishing process today and tomorrow so I can share it as a tutorial for you.  I think that'll be ready to go live tomorrow!  Meanwhile, I wonder if you have a quilt top (or two or three) in need of a backing?  How about an extra-wide backing that requires not a single bit of sewing or cutting?

Yeah, I thought you'd be interested!

I love using "wide backings" for bed quilts especially.  Not only are bed quilts somewhat unwieldy, their backings tend to be unappreciated.  Why go to work piecing a fun backing if it's destined to be hidden on a bed?  After sewing all the many, many blocks needed for a full, twin, queen or king quilt, I'm all about a quicker finish.  So, wide backings it is!

Check out Connecting Threads' large selection of affordable wide yardage here.  Our winner will receive 2.5 yards of her choice in continuous wide yardage!  This prize ships everywhere that Connecting Threads currently ships:  United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.

To enter, add your comment to this post now through noon (eastern time) on Friday, August 26th.  Tell us in your comment which extra-wide fabric you'd choose.  Be sure to include your email so I can contact you if you win!

Good luck!

  129. I could see my sister's surprise quilt (It would be a surprise to her after 5 yrs of losing the fabric I need to complete it...I moved and still can't locate the box.)
    In a trip to visit her, after not seeing her in 28 yrs. I bought a peacock
    Fabric I knew she would love. I planned to make her a wall hanging but when I gave her the choice of that or bed....well she threw me off by saying bed.
    I have redesigned the quilt several times...
    And saying All this....I would love the Elizabeth print in purple-passion.
    Thank you.

  170. I'm so happy that wide backing is becoming more readily available. It just makes sense to use wide backing and it's so much easier. If I won, I'd choose Morning Glory, very pretty. Thanks!

    I love the qayg quilt and I am looking forward to information on this beautiful creation
    I .... have a lot of quilt tops on the dining room table and that is all I care to share about that.
    I love connecting threads. I love their fabric. Very nice quality!
    I like the Dots, the Florettes, the Cobblestone, Cortez, Birdies, Elizabeth and Chic Roses.
    I am looking forward to reading your post tomorrow Missy Busy. I will be at the dentist with mom. She will be brave with me holding her hand and showing her pretty things on my iPad.

  177. Thanks for the giveaway. I love wide backing but can't always justify buying them. They make life easy for sure. Though others are more practical, I LOVE the cherry Folk and Floral. So pretty. Blessings Rachel!

  189. My choice is embroidered dot--I like that is neutral--and it looks great with Rachel's blues. I also like the large red gingham, but I don't have a project it would work with--yet!
