Tumblers and Backing

The Tumbler quilt top is completed.  Doesn’t it look great on my bed?

101415   (1024x794) It finished at 81″ x 87″ and is larger than my design wall.  While sewing the top I was thinking about the backing and had an idea.  My idea was to enlarge by five the size of the tumblers.  The tumblers on the front are 3″ tall and 3″ wide at the widest part so the tumblers on the back are 15″ tall and 15″ wide.

101415A   (1024x489)

101415B   (1024x644)I think that this makes the perfect backing and hope to get it sewn together today.  The plan is to start the machine quilting this weekend.
