Long and Short, Lava Flow, and Railroad

Hey there, friends!  It's time for me to introduce you to the next three designs in my new book, Perfectly Pieced Quilt Backs.  We're continuing today with quilt back designs that use medium-sized scraps.  

First up is the Long and Short quilt back, and you'll probably recognize this as my cover girl!  This quilt back is a great choice if you have scrap strips from both width-of-fabric yardage and fat quarters.

Another example-

Or this one-

Next up is Lava Flow, and I'm sure you can tell that the color palette was the inspiration for this design.  This layout is a fun way to use up those scrap rectangles!  You can see that they're not all a consistent length or width.  The variation adds lots of interest.

The last feature for today is the Railroad design.  If you have strips of width-of-fabric yardage, the Railroad back is a great way to show them off.  These long strips take center stage, with three different prints used to widen out the quilt back.

This design also looks great if you opt to use just one background fabric, like in this quilt-

Okay, y'all!  We're nine designs down, and not even halfway through!  This really is a comprehensive book, and I hope you'll grab a copy for yourself!  

How can you get Perfectly Pieced Quilt Backs?  Well, if you want a signed copy, you can get it 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.

I truly hope you'll consider adding it to your quilt library.  Thanks so much, friends!
