Quilt Back FAIL

I have yet to master the art of knowing how much fabric to order. I generally err on the side of caution and get too much. This time I really thought I got the perfect amount. I was going to use off-white fabric as the main backing piece with a stripe of scraps from the front down the middle. So I don't even need the fabric to cover the whole back and I still don't have enough for that (I haven't even cut the selvage edges off yet).

As a side note, I do NOT pose Malie in these photos. She sees me lay something out and  just has to make herself the center of attention.

Malie even did some double checking for me and confirmed it's not enough fabric.  So I'll be ordering some more fabric to make some thick stripes that cross in the back to divide up the off-white fabric into 4 pieces. 

Until then, back in the 'in progress' box... if Malie will let me take it.
