The Springwood Show opens tomorrow at 11am, and it was all happening behind the scenes today as the quilts were being hung
I was up a ladder when it occured to me that us hangers not only get to enjoy unfolding the quilts but we also get to see lots of wonderful quilt backs too!! It's like a hidden quilt show where the behinds are as are as wonderful and diverse as the fronts.
How about these Super Stripes that show off the swirly quilting.
Lovely giant lime dots or Teeny tiny puppies
If I was a bird I'd want to be on this wonderful back.
The flowers on this backing looked real!
Of course there lots of quilts are backed with gorgeous reproduction fabrics.
and some use fabrics that are more contemporary.
There's colourful pieced backings
And here's one that looks a bit like a storm brewing.
Simple plain backings show off clever quilting.
Even when they're orange chenille!!
That's just that backs so you can imagine how amazing the fronts are!
As you can understand there's no general handling of the quilts but if you're curious about seeing the backing of any quilt then just ask the friendly White Glove Lady and she'll be able to show you.
I haven't even mentioned all the fun labels!
