Book Review: Easy, Creative Quilt Backs
Over Easy: Creative Ideas for Pieced Quilt Backs
By Lerlene Nevaril
Martingale Publishing, 2006
Paperbound, 64 pages
Here’s a book for that neglected side of your quilts, the back side. Most quilters, having spent their creative energies on the top, try to keep the back as simple as possible. Lerlene Nevaril makes the case for giving more attention to the backsides of quilts, and provides a plethora of ideas for doing so, including backs done with fat quarters, panels, diagonals, scraps, flags, and more. Complete with instructions and lots of color photos demonstrating how the back of your quilt can be as rewarding (for both you and others) as the top.
