I hate when that happens

I finished those borders at about 11 PM, and was all excited to possibly begin quilting yesterday. I ran some errands, blah, blah, blah, so it was late afternoon by the time I could really think about quilting. I was sure I had something that both coordinated and was big enough in my stash. It’s 4:30 in the afternoon, and I discover that I have the perfect backing in my stash…..but it’s about half a yard short of what I need. Argh! By the time I realize that I don’t have anything else that I really want to use for the back, all of the quilt shops I could possibly get to are either closed or will be by the time I get there. I do have a tan print that would work, but I don’t have coordinating bobbins. Sheesh! The solution? I think I’m going to piece the back using two fabrics: the perfect print and a marbled batik. From top to bottom, there will be a stripe of print, then marble, then print again. Until I change my  mind again……
