I am really good at making things difficult. I decided on a stripe with roses for the backing and of course that means the stripe had to be matched and the repeat naturally didn't match up straight so I had three uneven length of fabric that had to be squared. And it was lots of fabric. I chose a new bolt of 12 yards of fabric and only had a yard and a quarter left. The backing took 10 7/8yd. of fabric so dear hubby helped me carry it around and fold it etc. And even helped me to pin it on, so while the batting is relaxing, hubby and I are relaxing too. Hope your journey was fun today and you are relaxing too.
