That's Just Fine and Dandy

I didn't have enough fabric for the backing for a large quilt I've had as a WIP since last June so I started making blocks to fill in with the batik backing. I used one of my fav blocks...Dandy...which finishes at 12 inches. Unfortunately I like them too much to use on the back of a quilt so I will probably have to make more Dandy blocks now...enough for a Queen sized quilt.

So, I don't know when I'll ever get this quilt finished. This was the look last June and it has since had a border of prairie points added. 

I think I have enough purple Kona to add a strip to the batik I have to make a backing...hopefully this weekend.

Linking up at Quilting by the River and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story. (Buttons on side bar).

Don't blame you for not wanting to use those great blocks as backing. Love the quilt as well; it gives me a feeling of stained glass.

I have done that in the past, made my backing pretty enough to be a front. Looking forward to see what you come up with for that pretty quilt top!

Beautiful blocks and beautiful quilt, I would definitely make 2 different quilts!
