I had hoped to have this done last weekend but something went awry with the delivery of the backing. It was delivered on Friday at 4:30pm but when I got home from work there was nothing on my porch. It's happened before that someone stole a sweater that I ordered for my daughter at Christmas. After that my neighbor across the street would get my packages until I got home. She moved quite awhile ago and I haven't had any problems since but, I suppose that someone took the package off my porch. I get deliveries several times a month on average but it's probably the gift season that prompts people to steal them.
I called Fabric.com and they replaced my order at no charge to me with 2nd day air delivery. I am grateful that they did even though I feel bad that it was necessary. I'll have to have things delivered to my work. I've seen news online that people steal deliveries, watch for them to take.
The backing is a marbled black, wide-width, that I got washed and dried this evening. It takes me at least a half hour to get a quilt fully loaded, basted, and ready to go. Maybe more, I didn't time it.
