A few days ago I wrote a post about choosing my backing fabric for my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. I wrote that I chose a yellow and green floral print that would go well with my top. I was wrong. I don't know how I got it mixed up but I actually ordered this:
I received it on Friday and it's ready to wash. I do wash my fabrics. I wash yardage and fat quarters. I don't wash pre-cuts like layer cakes or charm squares.
I won't need this backing fabric for a while yet, but it does have a chemical smell on it that I want to try to eliminate.
I love the floral print and it still has the yellow and green in it, so I'm happy.
