I tried...but

I don't like paper piecing, but I thought I'd give it a try. I have put the wall hanging pieces in a box. Maybe I'll try again some time later. I tried about 4 times to get started, but I had to take it apart 3 times and decided to put it aside.

I have made the back for this quilt. I added borders, and then decided to piece the back using the bits and pieces I had left over from making the top.

This is what it looks like. It took a long time, but I think it will be fun. I'm going to try using spray basting this time to see how it works. I took Small Machine, Bit Quilts, Better Results on Craftsy and that is how the teacher, Ann Petersen, bastes her quilts.

We'll see how it works.

I hate paper piecing - my brain hurts when I try, lol. I love the back you made for this quilt! I only tried spray basting once, I think it really makes a difference on what you use. I didn't like it at all - it didn't hold well for me, and kept shifting.
