    I prefer to piece a backing. I used wide backing one time. To iron that huge piece if fabric was so cumbersome. To me it’s much easier to iron the pieces, see it together, then spot iron where needed. I think it’s a personal preference.

    Listened to this episode while crawling around on the floor basting my version of Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice. Thanks for making basting a little more pleasant! I pieced this back and had a great time putting it all together. It was fun and I used up more of my fabrics, but I’m not sure a back is worth that kind of effort. There’s nothing like a wide back for convenience.

    I often pieced my backs before it became fashionable to do it. One reason was that the bit of the quilting process i liked least was the pinning and next to that was the quilting. The wadding is so expensive and no fun (at least the fabric which can be more expensive is fun to put together) So pieced backs meant that you got twice as much bang for your buck. The other reason I usually pieced a back though was that I never had a big enough piece for the backing on hand. So I used to piece the backing to make it big enough. The extra wide backing was never available locally and when I started I wasn’t internet savy. So pieced it was. I have an example of a pieced backing of my latest quilt on my latest blog
