Top done, rain, and fabric

The top of the anniversary quilt is done. I like the boldness of the piece.

Here is the fabric I think I will use for the backing. My brother bought this in NY on one of his many trips to the big apple. These are 6 yard pieces. Or I could put on a boring white back?

Here is a better picture of the chair and footstool that came home with me.

It was starting to finally cool down a bit so I gathered what I needed to go on my walk last evening. Mother Nature had other ideas. The gray clouds started rolling in

The wind was howling. The thunder and lighting appeared then shortly the rain fell. We needed the rain so I am not complaining, but walking did not happen.

I did get two pieces of fabric in the mail yesterday. I have not been buying much even with all the Memorial Day sales, but I wanted to get a piece of this purple unicorn fabric to make a dress for the same little girl whom I had made the other unicorn dress for at xmas. The other fabric is the Boo Crew in black which I had never seen before and did not know it even existed. I bought 2 yards and it will make a fun binding.

That African fabric will be a fun back for the quilt. You'll have it quilted by Monday, right?

If you are looking for opinions about the backing, you know I have one! LOL. I like the piece on the right with the boldness of the top. NOT plain white....Pa-Leeze!

Are you going to recover the chair or just go with it as is? What a great project. I have some chalk paint I could send you......

I really like this block arrangement - traditional yet totally modern (or is that a dirty word?) As to the backing, I vote for the African fabric on the right in the photo.
