The back is completely pieced with my leftover 9-patch blocks and the rest of the layer cake. It's binded with Kona Chocolate Brown (I think that was the color!)

Hello Betty Retro is done!
Finally!! I finished this quilt! This was suppose to be a Christmas gift for my Mother-in-law, but it just never got done. Her birthday is in a little over a week, so it's now a birthday gift! Originally this was going to be a 9-patch quilt. I had bought 3 layer cakes and was making 9-patches. Well I wasn't too crazy about them. They were the 1st ones I've ever done, and I just wasn't diggin' them. Plus I was getting really tired of making them after 1 layer cake and when I knew I had at least one more layer cake to do, I decided on something different. This is what I came up with. The center of the quilt is quilted with a meander stipple stitch and then the white borders are all straight line quilted. And oh my did that take FOREVER!! This quilt measures 58"x68"
