This video explains the benefits of wide backs vs sewing yardage to back a quilt. The man in the video also sewed his shirt– the fabric is a QT fabric. Sew Pro carries their fabric and others and we have a new prepacked wideback that is on sale for a short time!
Quality wide back is important. Some wide backs from big box stores have that almost cardboard feel. If you have worked super hard on a quilt make the final purchase of a wide back with care.
I hope you enjoyed this video.
