So we have pieced together our entire quilt front. Now we have to think about the back. Since we have enough squares we are going to do one multi-fabric zig zag on the back.
You will be sewing each of your colored fabric to a 6inch square from your backing fabric (for my quilt this is a grayish IKEA sheet). I am going to cut 12- 6 inch squares from one edge of the fabric.
Just as before, I will be pairing and marking each pair of fabric
Then sewing 1/4 inch from the line on either side.
Cut the squares into triangles.
Iron the triangles open to form new squares.
Then I can start creating my long zig zag.
I then can decide where on the back I want my zig zag. Once I have determined that, I need to cut a straight line dividing the backing fabric to make room for the zig zag.
I then will sew my zig zag to fit in between the line I just cut.
The backing is all done!!!
Take care mucho,
