It is no secret how untalented I am when it comes to math. More often than not I have to re-cut a piece of fabric three or four times before I get all of the measurements right! (Most of the time my head just isn't in the right place!) Today I am piecing a backing due to this lack of math skills...which isn't such a terrible thing! I love pieced backings! It adds a little something extra even if it's not real special:) The most fun I have with pieced backings is when I buy less fabric than I know I need and use the leftovers from making the quilt top to finish! Lots of potential in a quilt backing!!!
For this guy I'm keeping it REALLY simple and just piecing 8.5"x whatever width to add the length I need... (so I don't have anymore measuring to deal with!!!!)
