Back to the quilt: I got the backing pieced this morning. It is just a tad too wide to fit on the width of the fabric. The center panel comes as yardage and on the yardage there is a red and black checker board border running down both sides. This is not used in the pattern so I just cut the backing fabric (black, white and red dog print) down the middle and inserted the checker board strip to make it wide enough. I think it's pretty cute and more interesting than just a single piece of fabric back.
On the baby stuff front: I sold the crib today and the toddler safety bed rail. My friend is going to ask her daughter if she wants a few of my other items and get back with me later this week. I hope to find all the baby stuff new homes within a couple of weeks.
