I had a few pieces of colored poplin, very wide(more than 100 inches) but short (1 yard). And I pieced two striped backings for my next quilts.
I did not use the rotary cutter and cutting mat! I just ripped strips from the width of the fabric, then I pressed them and stitched them together.
The strips ended up perfect straight and it was so easy to piece them together.
Too bad I did not make them narrower!
I started quilting the last solid quilt I have. And I am happy again because the quilt is not too large and I still had a piece of cotton batting.

Half of quilt is already done and I am in love!
Lesson learned from the cube quilt: can’t make long straight lines of stitching – make them waved! Which I do and the quilting looks wonderful!
Can’t wait to wash it!
