Not a Pieced Back

So. How can I tell a story about a pieced back for the Modern Amish quilt when I've never shown a picture of the finished quilt? This is the last post I did on the quilt.  Here is the finished Modern Amish quilt:

Finished the quilt top in 2013.

Last year I decided I had lots of scraps left over and would make a pieced back for the quilt.  Well that didn't happen. I didn't like how it was going so put it away...for a year.

Worked on it again last weekend. By the time I finished piecing it I decided to make it a quilt top. I didn't want to hassle with trying to figure out the center of the quilt top and the center of the back and trying to line them both up so the center of the back was in the center of the top. Makes me stressed just writing that. So I made another top. Little bit smaller than planned but it uses up the last of the gray most of the solid scraps from the original quilt.

Now I have to find a back for both quilt tops.

Both are cool designs! A plain back sounds good, no?
