Today Caleb made the back of his quilt:
First, using some remaining scraps of various widths, sew a strip of them together that will stretch across the width (shortest length) of the quilt, like a stack of coins. Iron the strip. Next, sew the backing on either side, placing the strip as desired. Caleb placed it unevenly, with more of the blue beneath the coins than above. We used 2 pieces each 60" in length for the blue, sandwiching the coin strip between. Iron again, pressing edges inward and you are ready to put it all together on another day.
