I feel like I am on the home run with this quilt.
During the week Jill and I went to pick out some bed sheeting to use as the quilt back. I thought we'd end up with something fairly neutral, like black or grey, but we both ended up loving this lilac colour. There is just enough purple in the main quilt fabrics to have them pop out a bit and create a totally different feel to the fabrics. I have spent part of my Sunday piecing together the left over strips from the quilt top and I am going to insert it as a horizontal row in the lower portion of the quilt back. If it all goes according to plan this row should cover the foot of the bed and look somewhat like a bed runner.
