The Back of the Quilt

Yesterday, someone asked a good question about my quilts: what do they look like on the back?

After (usually) piecing together the background, I applique the foreground right onto it. The back, which is just batting at this point, gets pretty messy as you can see above. Right before I bind the quilt off, I put a piece of fabric on the back and sew a few lines to keep everything looking tidy.
