Bar Graph, Chunky, and Woven

It's time to share another three pieced quilt back designs from my new book, Perfectly Pieced Quilt Backs.  We've covered quilt backs with small scraps, and several quilt backs with medium scraps, and today, I'll show you some designs with large or mixed-size scraps.  

But first, I have one final design to share that uses medium scraps, and that's the Bar Graph quilt back.  This design is great if you have just a few leftover strips.  Since the strips are different lengths in this design, it's okay if you have some that aren't a full selvage-to-selvage length.

Quilt Backs Using Large or Mixed-Size Scraps

The Chunky quilt back kicks off the section of designs that use larger chunks of fabric, or several mixed scrap sizes, and it's one of my favorite designs in the book!

This design is the perfect choice if you have lots of larger chunks of fabric leftover, that aren't a consistent size.  There's no wrong way to put them together, but the book gives sorting and piecing guidelines so it's not overwhelming.

Check out this one-

Here's another example that's a little different.  On this one, I sewed the chunks around a center rectangle to give it more of a large log cabin look-

The final design featured today is the Woven quilt back.  I love this design when I have leftover fat quarter strips.  This one uses all solids, but it would be just as much fun with prints!  Since my scraps were all solids, I chose a subtle rainbow print for the top and bottom of this one, and it adds just enough contrast.  The alternating direction of the strip blocks gives this quilt back plenty of movement.

Okay, y'all.  It's time to share the details on how you can get Perfectly Pieced Quilt Backs for yourself!  You can get a signed copy from my Etsy shop HERE, or by clicking on the book image at the top left sidebar.  

It's also available everywhere you usually buy quilt books- Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Connecting Threads, Missouri Star, and Fat Quarter Shop.  It's being carried by all of the major distributors, so you can also ask your local quilt shop to carry it.

So, head on over and get your copy!  Thanks so much, friends!
