Much Better!

The dark backing has been replaced with the new lighter backing.  Making the change wasn't nearly as difficult as I had imagined.  Hand quilting rips out much faster than it goes in!  Yes, I lost some time, but I think it will be worth it in the long run!

Perfect! It's very complementary to the quilt without over powering it.

You will be much happier with the quilt with a backing you love. Otherwise everytime you see it, it would have bugged you! Love the new backing choice! Much better!

I agree with your choice, although your quilting stitches won't show as much now. For me, that would be another advantage.

It's always worth being happy with your work! And I agree -- the new backing is much better.
