The backing was found on clearance through Connecting Threads. I have gotten a ton of compliments on the back as it could be a quilt within itself. I feel like it matches well to the front, and compliments it. The red binding is perfect for both sides, and gives the quilt a nice frame.
The pictures my husband took of the quilt are awesome! I love this shot, with just a little bit of the sky peaking through, and it shows off the quilting. The quilting was custom, I love how it turned out. I worked on my feathers and custom quilted each border, which was interesting. I flipped the quilt 90 degrees after quilting all the way down on the long-arm to quilt the borders so they looked cohesive. It turned out in the end, but one border has some puckers in it.
Overall, I am more than happy I got this quilt done, my husband keeps complimenting me on it as he loves having it on our bed. This is a project on my Quarter 2 Finish-A-Long list, as number 38. Two done for the quarter, lots to go!
