Whole Cloth? Project

I understand whole cloth quilting as a way to do intricate detailed quilting on a single piece of fabric. I did not do that with this quilt.

What I did to is take a single piece of fabric that was pretty large. It measures 50" x 50". I don't know where it came from and how the owner ended up buying fabric where the WOF wasn't 44'-45" wide. All I know is that I was asked to quilt it for a friend.

Now the back was tricky because the purple solid had the standard WOF.  So in order to make the backing the same size as the top fabric I had to cut a piece 56" long and turn it sideways to fit across. The I had to take the rest of what was given to me and cut it into thirds then sew the thirds together to get another piece that was 56" long. I sewed those 2 pieces together to make the backing fit. It was perfect. Good thing...math.

I quilted pretty butterflies on the quilt using variegated pinks/purples/white thread on the top and a solid light purple thread in the bobbin. I like the results. The lesson I learned is that I can easily make charity quilts just by sandwiching batting between two pieces of fabric and get an amazing result.
