    1. Thank you Sherry. I realized only after posting, that the title should not say quilt "top", as the whole quilt is finished. To change that would send all subscribers a notice of a new post, and the link party link would not work (wrong url), so I am leaving the title as-is. 'Glad you also like the strip of colors on the backing. I love pieced backs.
