Finishing the Subway

I guess I'm not very patient.  I got the Subway basted this afternoon during naptime.  The husband was home from work this morning.  I took advantage of the opportunity and went to the quilt shop sans kids.  This is the fabric I got for the backing and binding.



I'm actually liking it much better now that it's all basted.  I'm excited to start quilting it.

Last night I tried out an idea for piecing the back of my Subway quilt.  It just wasn't right, but I think it will make a cool quilt later on. 
There is enough piecing on the front of the Subway.  I decided it didn't need a pieced back as well.

  4. Good decision, but that pieced former back will make a great quilt. The backing fabric you chose is fab! Can't wait to see it when it is done!
