At a time when my own backside is in the best shape it has been in almost 23 years, due to running 3x a week my quilting backside on Epic Wings has been laid low by an ego deflating choice of the worst backing ever*.
|There are no words.. really|
Making this situation even sadder is that the front of this quilt is totally Bad-Ass if I do say so myself. I really stretched myself on this one and am really liking it.. thus the sadness of the the tragically ugly backside is even more acute.
If I could slip quietly into the past I would not make the late night choice to use something "from my stash" so I could start that very night.. I would wait and get a solid that would have made the most of the riot of stitches that grace the back of this work. But no, not me... grrrrrr.
So live and learn, while not the most important part of the quilt by a long shot.. your backside does matter.
* As a technical note there is nothing wrong with the fabric, just my choice of it for this quilt. the print does nothing whatsoever even though it actually went very well with the colors and circle motif on the front of the quilt.. just a poor choice based on how I quilted this particular piece - and I should have known better.
