Nice finish Nicole and this is really a lovely quilt....congratulations!!


Beautiful quilt Nicole. I have a local quilt shop that has a huge selection of wide back fabric. There web site is if you would like to have a look.

Love your summer memories! The fabrics go together so well. 🥰

Mary B

That turned out absolutely amazingly BEAUTIFUL!

Jan Altomare

Beautiful finish!!! have your tried backsidefabrics dot com. They have a great selection of backings up to 120".

Pam O

Agree BackSideFabrics. Lesser amount at I Need Fabric.


Nicole, that turned out absolutely beautiful! We had a nice fourth. Our daughter brought our granddaughters over and we walked uptown to watch the parade. It's a bit old fashioned with all the local Junior Miss pageant winners, local karate clubs, high school bands, the Shriners, fire trucks, local officials and my favorite, the antique tractors! The girls got lots of candy and there was a woman handing out ice pops so they were very happy.


Lovely quilt Nicole! You will treasure it for years! Your 4th sounds very fun and sparkly! I’m with you on piecing quilt backs. My least favourite job! Do you have to mail your quilts to your long armer? Have a happy week sewing!


I've bought wide back fabric from Fat Quarter Shop, Missouri Star, and eQuilter - all online shops. You can search with terms like "wideback" and "108 inch" and the like.


Beautiful finish! My favorite place to shop in person also has a big online presence

When I do place an online order, I can't believe how fast they ship it out to me.

Your quilt looks wonderful! And thanks to all of you for your backing stores. I'm in the middle of piecing a backing right now and I just hate it- I don't have a good measuring system and so it's a lot of work.


Hancock’s of Paducah has a large selection. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. I came this close to starting this quilt but it is still on my list to make. I was on a bus trip with quilters when the quilt along started and the quilt shop had a huge selection of perfect! Fabrics but hated to haul that many bolts to the cutting table😂


What a gorgeous quilt -- your hard work really paid off! Try Marshall's Dry Goods - huge selection and really great prices

Sue Fullerton

check Keepsake Quilting online for a huge collection of 108" backings.


Your quilt is absolutely beautiful. All those too many to count half-square triangles, but so worth the effort.

Well, it may have been tedious to make, but the results are spectacular. What a beautiful quilt top! Absolutely beautiful!!


Hooray! Big finish…looks wonderful.

Rossville Quilts is have a Fourth of July Sale - a different category each day. Tomorrow the category is Extra Wide Yardage 35% off. That's a pretty good savings. I've not ordered backings from them but I have ordered from them before and they are very reliable.


Your quilt top is beautiful & I can see how flat it came out! Slow & steady won that race, for sure! We had a rainy, chilly 4th but the parades & fireworks went on as planned. Congratulations on the finish!

Linda Kay Smith

Wow - this is a really beautiful quilt. Excellent work, especially considering you got tired of all those little half square triangles! The colors work so nicely together, too.

Susan M.

This is a beautiful quilt, but all those triangles! Have you looked at for wide fabric? They have terrific prices, inexpensive shipping and are great people to work with. They are a brick and mortar store that has gone to online sales only since COVID (le sigh).

Dianne R

Your quilt is beautiful. Quilted Twins has a big selection of 108 inch backing fabric. They’re very reasonably priced.

Lisa Stack

Hancocks of Paducah and have lots of backings

Rebecca Ball this is in Washington. This company has $5 shipping and lots of fabrics. Just at the shops - lots of backings.

Both companies deliver in about a week, Rainbow quicker for me - half a continent away, than MO star - an hour away.

Hope this helps. Your longarmer will love you for using wide backs.
Love your quilt top.

Kathy Czuprynski

A couple of weeks ago I found one of my favorite backings on sale at Missouri Star on sale. It had a spot at checkout for a coupon code so I googled it and got a code for 20-25% off! It bought 12 yards! I like Composition and Zen Chic’s Modern Backgrounds. They go with almost everything.
Your top turned out lovely!!
