Got Yer Back

 I like to use my leftover(s) blocks on the back of my quilts for added interest.
I tackled the pile of tops today.  These were small lap quilts and pretty straight forward.
 I like the horizontal setting as it is easier to load on the frame also.
 I didn't want to waste any of the bridges and lighthouse blocks I collected on the Shop Hop.
I put my least favorite blocks on the back so they could still be included.
I used a few strips of leftover fabric to separate the blocks and sewed them together.
                                     After trimming, I cut the backing apart to add the blocks.
                 And added the 'new' adjusted strip back into the place for the souped up backing!
                                                  Now it goes from, "ehh" to "yeah!"
