BA4 Spiced Pomegranate Red
From Kim Diehl's collection of Wide Backings. This is 108" wide. The abstract pomegranates are over an 1" in size. The pomegranates are a deep cranberry red color with tan vines and green leaves against a darker neutral background. |
Don't let the price fool you. What is so great about a wide backing is it requires way less yardage for a backing and there's less piecing to do.
For example - a quilt 84" x 94", using your typical 42-44" wide fabric would require 8 1/2 yards (includes some overage for the quilter). But using a 108" wide fabric, you would only need 2 7/8 yds!
And the savings in dollars can be quite substantial since some 42-44" wide fabrics are now close to $12/yard.
