Tips for Better Quilt Backings
The fronts of quilts get all the attention, but quilt backings are also an important part of a quilt, and they deserve some love, too! Lindsay shares tips for choosing backing fabric, the best way to piece the backing, and creative ideas to jazz up your quilt back.
Elizabeth chats with Kim Smith Soper from FeelGood Fibers. FeelGood Fibers is a website marketplace to shop and sell secondhand fabrics (such as those from a destash in your sewing room). As part of Kim's larger mission to empower sewists to be intentional about their fabric purchases, Kim's blog Good Vibes is full of inspiring interviews, motivating articles, and tips on how to organize, destash, and make mindful secondhand purchases. Kim also offers decluttering coaching services for those who need extra help getting their sewing rooms under control.
