I cropped off the extra two inches on the border so you can see it in proportion. The three borders equal the width of one block – 7.5″.

This is the backing. With so much going on the front of the quilt I probably should have chosen a more subdued fabric for the backing. But I thought – what the heck – why not have the back as wild as the front!

Note: I just linked this post up to Nina-Marie’s “Off The Wall Friday’s.”  Most of the links are art quilts but she asked me to post this – so I did. Check out her blog – there are a lot of cool fiber artists that post on Friday’s.

Another note: I am entering this in the Fall 2012 Bloggers Quilt festival at Amy’s Creative Side.
