ZIPPER QUILT BACKING

I know this must look a little strange, but this is one of my favorite ways to piece a back. It is called a zipper back. Vertical or horizontal, it is fun. Pick two fabrics and make enough squares to alternate in a row top to bottom or side to side. Then sew each fabric to either side of the squares. I think these squares are 6 inches. Any size works. Try it!!
